TVCC sweeps TJC in Region XIV contest, heads to Kilgore Wednesday

ATHENS — On a day when Leon Spencer received his dedication at the basketball court that now bears his name, the TVCC Cardinals capped off a sweep of the Tyler Junior College Apaches Saturday night.

TVCC (16-9, 7-7) jumped out to a 33-21 lead at the half, and had to hold on in the second half for a 64-57 victory over the Apaches.

Coach Kris Baumann’s Cardinals were in complete control of the game leading by double figures throughout most of the game until TJC put together a rally to get to within three points late in the game.

TJC’s Todd Eaglin drained a three-pointer to cut the Cardinals lead to, 60-57, with 39 seconds remaining before Karon Phillips nailed four clutch free throws to ice the game.

TVCC was led in scoring by Tyler Corley with 17 points, draining five three-pointers in the game.

Teammates Carl Porter and Tramain Parker scored nine points each in the win. Porter had five of the Cardinals nine three-pointers in the contest.

Tyler was led in scoring by DeAndre Harris with 17 points.

TVCC travels to Kilgore Wednesday night with a 7:30 p.m. tipoff.
