Game Recap

The Taylor Titans JV squad pushed their win streak to three games Thursday night with a hard fought battle against the visiting Elwood Panthers. The game was close throughout with the Panthers largest lead being five and the Titans being seven. The Titans got off to a bit of a slow start and trailed by five at the end of one quarter. Their defense clamped down in the second period, holding Elwood to two points which came from the free throw line. The Titans free throw shooting kept them in the lead as they hit eight out of eleven attempts. They were also able to keep the ball away from the panthers and work the clock in the final minutes. Cash Kelley-Smalley lead the Titans in scoring with nine points. Antwan Halliburton Had eight and Caden Sullivan had five. Tyler Hall lead the charge in the rebound column, grabbing a team high eight boards, while Sullivan turned in another strong rebounding effort from the guard spot with six. Damarion Brent grabbed five boards, with three of them coming on the offensive glass. The win moves the Titans record to 5-10 with five games to play. Taylor is in action again Saturday afternoon where they will hit the road to face Madison Grant for a 1:00pm JV tip off.
