Trinity boys outclassed in season opener

GBKB2TONY FARKAS | TCN Trinity Lady Tiger Rayn Balli (No. 22) drives around Groveton defenders during a Nov. 7 game in Trinity. The Lady Tigers defeated the Lady Indians 44-22.

By Tony Farkas

TRINITY — An extended football season led to a late start for the Trinity Tigers’ basketball squad, and the lack of playing time may have led to the 88-33 loss to Livingston on Friday in the teams’ first game.

Livingston took advantage of more playing time, as well as a distinct height advantage, during the game.

Head Coach Jacoby Mitchell said there was only five days of practice before their season opener, and that combined with having some key starters out was a factor in the loss.

“We had too many turnovers, we have to take care of ball better than that,” Mitchell said. “We have to work on taking great shots, not just good shots.”

Trinity now stands 0-1 on the season, and Livingston improved its record to 2-0.

Mitchell said his top producers in the game were Jakai Miller-Gates, who scored 13 points, and Terius Maxie, who dropped in 10 points.
