The Cougars jumped on top by double figures in the second quarter but the Wolves battled back to trail by just five points at halftime.

In the fourth quarter, the lead changed hands several times, with Karr getting a huge 3-pointer by Ygb Johnson with 45 seconds left to give the Cougars the lead and they held on for the win.

Johnson finished with 11 points, Kevin Slaughter and E.J. Riley each had 10 points. Derrick Hawkins led Karr with 14 points while Keith Jones added 12 points.

Reece Seicshnaydre led St. Paul’s with 27 points.

The Raiders dominated the first half, leading 11-8 after one quarter and 24-11 at halftime.

The Tigers dominated the second half, cutting the deficit to 31-28 at the end of the third quarter and outscoring Rummel 17-7 in the final frame for the win.
