BOYS

Bellaire Episcopal 61, Dickinson 43

HOUSTON

The Dickinson Gators ran into a hot-shooting Episcopal Knights team at the Hoops Giving Classic that was held at Houston Christian on Wednesday.

Episcopal shot a blistering 50 percent from the field compared to Dickinson’s 24 percent.

Trailing by 14 at the half, the Gators were able to go toe-to-toe with the Knights in the second half (33-29 second-half advantage for Episcopal). But the early deficit and misfiring from 3-point land (1-for-16) was too much for Dickinson to overcome.

Tramon Mark scored a game-high 18 points and corralled six rebounds for Dickinson.

Byron Staten chipped in with nine points and Kelvin Walker tallied eight points for the Gatros.

Adam Kanafani paced Episcpal with 16 points on 8-for-9 shooting.

Dickinson will be looking to bounce back as the Gators will take on Katy Morton Ranch on Saturday at the Texas Jamboree that is located at Episcopal High School. First tip is scheduled for 4 p.m.

Editor's note: Will be updated if more information becomes available.
