Troup ladies clobber Waskom, 60-31

Jan. 9—TROUP — Whatever Troup head girl's basketball coach David Minnix told his team at halftime of Tuesday's game against Waskom, seemed to be just what the doctored ordered.

The Lady Tigers outscored the visitors 38-14 in the final half to claim a 60-31 triumph over the Ladycats (2-5 in district).

It was a different story in the opening half, as Troup led by only five points, 22-17, at the break.

Zaquirah Jordan erupted for 20 points and Ashja Franklin canned 19 for the Lady Tigers (12-9, 3-2).

Qhenja Jordan pitched in nine for the winning squad.

At 6:15 p.m. Friday Troup will trek to New London for a date with West Rusk.
