STROUD – Anthony Billy put up 22 points but it wasn't enough to lift Tecumseh over Seminole in a 59-52 Chieftains win in the consolation title game of the Stroud Coliseum Classic Saturday.
The two squads were step for step in the first quarter but Seminole barely outscored Tecumseh 13-11 in the second to go into halftime with a 23-21 lead.
The Chieftains stayed one step ahead to extend to a 42-38 advantage after three and held on in the fourth to take the win.
Kason Clark led Seminole with 18 points and was 4-4 from the line. Both he and Billy sank four 3-pointers apiece.
Dayton Jackson had 12 points for Seminole, Shemmario Stephens had 11, Adam Nance 7, Sepado Wilkins 6 and Jackson Vaughn hit a 3-pointer.
Kameron Permetter had 11 points for Tecumseh, Jayden Shafer and Ryan Fullbright each had eight and Dustin Thompson had three.
Seminole moved to 8-2 on the season with the win and will be back at Stroud for a game against Stroud on Friday. Tecumseh (7-4) travels to Harrah Tuesday.
