Game Recap

The Taylor Titans JV squad won a thriller Friday night against the Eastern Comets. Tyler Hall grabbed a rebound off of a missed free throw with about 12 seconds left and the Titans trailing by 2. Hall went coast to coast and hit a lay-up with 5.1 seconds left to tie the game. He was fouled on the shot as well. After a timeout by Taylor to set the defense, Hall stepped to the line and buried the go ahead free throw. Hall redeemed himself from about a minute earlier when he missed both free throws on a two shot foul. The game winning free throw was one of five points from Hall on the night. The Titans showed the kind of fight that their coach has been looking for all season. They never gave up and battled back from five points down with under a minute to play in the game. Caden Sullivan and Drew Smith led the Titans in scoring with nine points a piece. Freshman Damarion Brent had a solid night for the Titans as well scoring seven points and hitting some clutch free throws late in the game. Sullivan also lead the Taylor in rebounds grabbing 10 on the night. Antwan Halliburton added 8 boards and Hall had 7. The win moves the Titans to 3-10 on the season with their next game coming next Friday, January 20th at Peru. JV tip-off is at 6:00.
