HARTS — Make it 5-0.
The Harts Middle School boys’ basketball team won its fifth straight game to open the season with last Friday’s 45-31 victory at home over Sherman in the Larry Williamson Memorial Tournament at the Harts gym.
The tourney is named after Williamson, a member of the Harts 1964 team — the first team at HHS to win a sectional championship. Williamson was killed a couple of years later in Vietnam.
Drew Williamson led Harts Middle with 21 points in the win. He made two 3-pointers and pulled down six rebounds.
Kyle Browning had 14 points, while C.J. Dalton had six and Carson Toney and Ty Sturm had two each.
Harts outrebounded the Tide 30-27.
The Lions led 17-2 after one quarter, 22-3 at the half and 41-17 after three. Sherman outscored Harts 14-4 in the fourth to set the final score.
