The way basketball goes..

Wednesday's overtime basketball matchup between the Terrell and the Paris was certainly an exciting one for fans, but as it turns out, the Lady Tigers had it won in regulation.

The official scorebook shows the Lady Tigers outscoring Paris 17-5 in the final quarter, more than erasing the 33-43 deficit from the end of the third. However, the scoreboard still showed the teams tied at 48.

While the Paris Lady Cats outscored Terrell 7-6 in the extra period, the mistake had been corrected and the final 56-55 win for the Lady Tigers was in the books.

With the mistake corrected, there is no problem, but it is rare to see a box score where the team who scored the most in overtime loses the game.


The Lady Tigers beat Grandview this morning to take fifth place in the Kaufman Holiday Tournament. District play resumes Tuesday night with Terrell facing Lancaster. The Lady Tigers will be at home and the Runnin' Tigers boys team will be on the road.
