At Salado, Austin Adams, Dane Hankamer and Brandon Womac combined for 23 points in the fourth quarter and the Eagles’ pressured on defense helped them rally to a district-opening win. Salado (12-4, 1-0 22-2A) trailed 33-31 going into the fourth.
“We finally started pressing and got a little bit more aggressive (in the fourth),” Salado coach Kenny Mann said. “We kind of sleep-walked through the first three quarters … and they decided we better wake up or we’re not going to pull this one out.”
Adams finished with a game-high 19 points, including nine in the fourth. Hankamer and Womack scored 15 and 14, respectively, and each scored seven in the final period.
