Tuloso-Midway's boys and girls fared well at the Burger King Classic Pride of Texas Tournament last week.

The guys lost Saturday in their third place match-up against the Schertz Clemens Buffaloes, 64-56, while the girls lost Saturday in the championship game against Austin Lake Travis Lady Cavaliers, 71-54.

Guard Phillip Belford led the way for the Warriors against the Buffaloes with 23 points, including four 3-pointers.

Tuloso-Midway kept it close in the first quarter, as the Warriors were behind 15-13.

They looked to creep up on Schertz Clemens, outscoring them 18-17 in the second quarter.

However, the Buffaloes just pulled further away, keeping Tuloso-Midway from catching up.

The Cherokees were hoping they could take care of business, climbing up the ladder to the championship game against Austin Lake Travis.

Already down 19-10 after the first quarter, Tuloso-Midway began to make a run and the Cherokees found themselves down by just three points at the half, 31-28.

Defense was a big factor for the Lady Cavaliers, holding the Cherokees to just nine points in the third, before Austin Lake's offense ran away with the game, scoring 22 points in the fourth quarter as the Lady Cavaliers finished the tournament on top.

The Cherokees' Kelley Cerny and Brandi Park finished the game scoring in double-digits with 11 points each.

T-M's Cerny, Park and Jenna Serna were all selected in the Pride of Texas All-Tournament team for their efforts.

Despite not having any players make the All-Tournament team, the Warriors are hoping their performance will improve on a slow start to the season.

Tuloso-Midway faces Beeville at home Saturday at 1:30 p.m. The girls will also play Beeville, but they will be on the road playing at Beeville at 6:30 Friday night.
