Boys Varsity Basketball · Wildcats struggle in loss to Cove


One streak ended and another continued Friday afternoon inside Wildcat Gym, where the Temple boys and girls basketball teams played the second of four straight home District 12-6A doubleheaders.

 The Wildcats suffered a sixth defeat in a row overall and second in 12-6A as Cove cruised to a 65-33 win.

It took the Bulldawgs 3½ minutes to take a 9-0 first-quarter lead, and they didn’t look back from there in boosting their 12-6A record to 3-3 at the expense of the Wildcats (8-15, 2-5), who again were without injured starting guard Jaiden Pate (wrist) and had limited action out of fellow guard Lathyn Castilleja after he missed Wednesday’s game with a back ailment.
