That was the case Tuesday night as the Lone Grove High School boys basketball team overcame a sluggish third quarter to hold off Sulphur for a 49-47 win.

The Longhorns led by 10 points at halftime, only to have the Bulldogs outscore them 15-8 in the third quarter. Lone Grove still held a 36-33 advantage entering the fourth and held on for the victory.

Jeshua Miller led the Longhorns with a game-high 24 points, while Andy Dunham added nine and Gavin Peery finished with six.

Meanwhile, Sulphur’s Davion Willis tallied 12 and Garrett Stinson chipped in 11.
