Stephenville won its 13th straight in district play and took another step toward repeating as the champion of 7-3A Tuesday night.

The Yellow Jackets weren't as sharp offensively as in their 83-point explosion at Hillsboro a week prior, but their defensive pressure and transition scoring were enough to dispose of Glen Rose 59-41 at Gandy Gym.

Grayson Sweet scored 13 of his game-high 19 in the opening quarter, which ended with a 35-foot buzzer beater by B.J. Walker for a 20-10 Stephenville lead.

Branndon Bledsoe stepped off the Jacket bench to score five points in two second-quarter possessions, helping build what ultimately became a 35-16 halftime lead.

The half ended with another buzzer-beater - Brandon Stevens scored in transition after a nifty assist from Grayson Sweet, who saved the ball from going out on the baseline by touch passing it back to his senior classmate.

The Jackets led 47-23 by the middle of the third, but Glen Rose roared to life to make it respectable.

The Tigers finished the third on a 7-0 run to pull within 17, and eventually closed he gap to 53-41 with four minutes remaining.

But the Yellow Jackets buckled down defensively and didn't allow another point, finishing the win with a 6-0 push.

Bledsoe and Mookie Carlile each scored eight for Stephenville, which visits second-place Alvarado Friday with a chance to put a stranglehold on a second straight district title and an opening-round bye in the state playoffs.

Stevens and Kaegun Williams had five points each and Walker added four for the Jackets. Malik Taylor and Colby Brandon each scored three and Tyler Isham had two.

Glen Rose was led by Jeffrey Harris with 17 points.
