COLDSPRING — The treys fell, and so did the Hardin Hornets, as the Trojans took a 77-64 win over Hardin on Friday.

Coldspring took an early lead and kept the Hornets at bay behind the long-distance buckets by Cam Shaw-Rucker. The win gave the Trojans second place in district.

Luke Monroe said the 3-point shots came at will all night long. 

Coach Greg Devers said the Trojans still have another game, but with a three-game lead over Crockett, the second-place win is a done deal.

Shaw-Rucker made a statement by hitting 34 points during the game. 

He was followed by Luke Monroe and Chris Harden, each with 12 points. 

On Feb. 8, the New Waverly Bulldogs topped the Trojans 61-47.

While the Bulldogs were stunned by the Trojans during the first half, the difference in the game was the third quarter. The Trojans came out cold and it was not until the fourth quarter that the Trojans managed to start hitting the bucket. 

Shaw-Rucker and Monroe had 15 points apiece on the night.

 Lady Trojans

The New Waverly Lady Bulldogs ended the Lady Trojans’ season on Feb. 8 with a 79-38 loss.

The Lady Trojans could only muster 10 points during the first quarter and finally got going with 11 during the second quarter. They only put up 17 points during the entire second half. They did not give up, as they kept shooting until the last buzzer sounded.

Bri Shaw-Rucker had 17 points for the Lady Trojans.

TRINITY — It was rough, and it was physical, and at one time, the COCISD Trojans were behind, but the tough got going, and the Trojans downed district rival Trinity 61-51 on Feb. 1.

Coldspring was down 23-15 at halftime, a place it has been in some time, according to Head Coach Greg Devers.

The Trojans rallied in the second half as they outscored the Tigers 46 to 28, including 26 to 11 in the third quarter. 

From there, the Trojans were 13 of 27 shooting and 17 of 19 from the free throw line. 

Leading scorers were Luke Monroe with 27 points, Chris Harden with 13 points, and Cam Shaw-Rucker with 11 points, 6 steals and 5 rebounds. 

K.D. Bookman had a good overall game with 7 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 5 steals.

Meanwhile, the Lady Trojans commanded the first three quarters against the Lady Tigers, staying anywhere from 12 to 20 points ahead.

However, the fourth quarter would see Trinity pull within two to scare the Lady Trojans; fouls and foul shots were what kept the lead firmly in the hands of the Lady Trojans, who won by 6.

The final score was 51-45.
