BIGGERSVILLE -- The Biggersville Lions came out on top Friday night against the Tishomingo County Braves as Lions' senior, Daniel Simmons led the way with a double-double on Senior Night.

Simmons finished with 25 points and 10 boards in a 93-74 win over Tishomingo County on Friday.

Darian Barnett tallied 20, including, 12 in the opening period, while classmate Emmanuel Simmons added 12 points and seven rebounds.

The Lions jumped out to an early lead and at one point led by more than 24. However, in the second quarter Tishomingo County battled back and scored 30 points to pull within 11 at the half.

The Lions just proved to be too much as they forced 15 turnovers in the second half and came out with the “W” as the home crowd cheered on Lion seniors for their last regular season home game of their careers.

The Lions who finished the regular season 22-5 and the No. 1 seed in Division 1-1A with a 6-0 mark, start division play next week in their quest to repeat as Class 1A State Champions.

Tish County junior Blake Hawkins lead the way for the Braves as he scored 18 points and snatched six rebounds. Tishomingo County finished the regular season 6-20.

• In the opener, Jada Tubbs nearly outscored the Lady Braves by herself as the Lady Lions set the stage for a sweep with a 48-33 win.

Tubbs had a game-high 28 -- despite a scoreless first quarter -- for Biggersville, helping to offset the 22 tallied by Tish County’s Annsley McRae.
