Tigers heat up

Preston Adams looks to shoot against Brewer Monday night at home. | Brent Maze

Hartselle is starting to find its range at precisely the right time.

The Tigers are entering the postseason on a two-game winning streak, including a 68-51 thrashing of Brewer Monday night.

Hartselle coach Keith Wright said his team has battled through adversity this season. The season has been plagued by injuries and illness.

But through it all, Wright said his team has never given up.

“This team has continued to work hard this entire season,” Wright said. “We’ve had so much adversity, such as injuries and kids getting mono and things like that, but it hasn’t kept our team from fighting. They’ve just worked so hard and finally we’re starting to shoot the ball well.”

One player in particular who’s been on fire lately is Preston Adams. He was 6-for-6 from downtown against Lawrence County on Friday and then hit his first three behind the arc on on Monday. He finished with 16 points against Brewer.

But Adams wasn’t the only one with success. Colston Thompson finished with 15 followed by Timbo Slaton with 14 and Prestyn Wallace with 10.

Jamal Jackson also had six while Thomas Fleischman had five and Jacob Letson had two.

That hot shooting helped the Tigers take a 12-3 lead after the first quarter and 35-18 by halftime, as Hartselle cruised to the win.

Brewer was led by Brandon Elder and Alex Vest with eight points apiece. Josh Sanford and Austin Morries finished with six each while Coty Benitez had five points.

Rounding out the scoring were Cole Oldacre and Jake Donohoo with four each, Brendon Deberry and Cody McKee with three each and Zach Steffen and Trevor Borden with two each.

The Tigers will travel to East Limestone on Friday to play the host team in the first round of the area tournament. Tip-off is at 6 p.m.

Brewer will play host to Columbia at 7 p.m. on Friday in the first round of the area tournament.
