Jacob Moore and the Tigers participated in the Jack Shellnut Basketball Tournament in Edgewood last weekend. 

The Wills Point Tigers have found themselves in the midst of their busiest stretch of the 2016-’17 season in recent weeks, participating in the 50th annual Jack Shellnut Basketball Tournament in Edgewood Dec. 1-3 before returning home to host their own tournament Dec. 8-10.

The Tigers began their tournament run against host Edgewood Dec. 1, falling 56-31 to the same Bulldog team that has already tallied two wins over Wills Point rival Canton this season. Wills Point narrowly came up short in their second and final pool play game of the tournament against Wolfe City, falling 38-35 Dec. 2.

Placed in the bronze bracket after the completion of pool play, Wills Point wrapped a winless run in Edgewood with back-to-back losses against both Hooks and Quinlan Ford Dec. 3.
