Special to the E-T By James Carpenter

After a fierce battle at the annual Graford tournament, the Huckabay varsity boys walked away with the third place trophy. Graford won the tournament with Trinity Valley in second place. Huckabay junior guard Joseph Jackson received the "All Tournament" medal. Jackson showed lots of heart at Graford scoring up in the double digits in all three games.

During the first round the Indians played Graford, the number one ranked team in Class A Division-one basketball. Graford was victorious with a 78 to 43 score. In the second round, the Indians knocked off Burkburnett's JV and won 69-59.

In the final game Huckabay held on until the very end, and slipped past Peaster, 37-36. Peaster, a Class 2A power, had two shots with the final seconds ticking off the clock, but couldn't get a game winner to fall as the Indians held on.
