Marion loses in tournament final, Finish Third


The Stacey H.S. Eagles Varsity Basketball Team played the host team, the Marion Bulldogs, in the final game of the 2014 Marion Invitational Boys Basketball Tournament . A win for the Dogs would’ve given them the title outright.

The Bulldogs would get off to a slow start in the first quarter. The Bulldogs offense continued to struggle to find consistent offense to only lead in the game 20-19 as we hit halftime. The 3rd quarter would be a different story as the Eagles turned things around to take the lead to 29-25 as we headed to the 4th quarter. Stacey closed it out in the 4th as they outscored the Marion Bulldogs to win the game 41-36 and to win the tournament.

All-Tournament selections for the Marion Bulldogs would be Jose Sanchez and Camden Wilson.

Leading in scoring for the Bulldogs would be:

Logan Pogue: 17 points and 13 rebounds

Camden Wilson: 9 points and 9 rebounds

The Marion Bulldogs now will focus on preparing to take on the Boerne Greyhounds. Tip off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 9, 2014 at Marion H.S.
