H.S. Basketball: Big 2nd half pushes Gorman past Palestine



Madisonville 61, CAYUGA 58

A rough second half doomed the seventh-ranked Cayuga boys’ basketball team Tuesday, as the Wildcats fell to Class 3A Madisonville, 61-58.

The Mustangs outscored Cayuga 33-23 in the second half of the game.

Chandler Rigdon had 22 points to lead Cayuga in the loss, while Deon Shofner had 14. Preston Anderson, who scored 45 in Cayuga’s New Year’s Eve win over Westwood, was held to 12.

The Wildcats (12-6) continue their string of games against 3A opponents at 10 a.m. today when they take on Canton. Cayuga then hosts Mexia Tuesday.
