PLAINVIEW — Frenship might not subscribe to any sports superstitions, but the Tigers seem to have a prevailing lucky number from week to week in these playoffs: four, as in fourth quarter.

Throughout the playoffs, Frenship has toppled opponents with excellent fourth-quarter performances, this time knocking out Canyon 71-53 Wednesday in a Region I-4A quarterfinal at Hutcherson Center.

“These guys understand how to finish,” Frenship assistant coach Kyle Brown said. “They’ve got a lot of heart.”

Frenship outscored Canyon 23-9 in the fourth quarter, which is getting to be old hat. The Tigers outscored El Paso Andress 27-7 in the fourth quarter Friday in a 60-50 victory and outgunned Randall 23-3 in the fourth quarter of a 68-40 win in bi-district.

Frenship has been able to find success to that end with balanced scoring.

“It can be hard for other teams to scout us because we don’t have a certain guy that’s just our full leading scorer,” Brown said. “We have guys that pick up the slack when one person is having an off night or is being defended really well.”

Isaiah Tillman led the Tigers with 15 points, while Lucas Schuster added 13. Hunter Hays tossed in 10 points.

Of course, it also helps when the leading scorers of the other team foul out.

Canyon’s Wyatt Sippy scored 16 points on the night, but fouled out in the fourth quarter, which sparked Frenship’s run.

Frenship moves on to face No. 12 Trophy Club Byron Nelson, the last ranked team in Region I, in the regional semi-final game at Scurry County Colesium in Snyder on Friday at 4 p.m.

Idalou 60

Canadian 55

AMARILLO — Idalou’s going back to the Region I-2A tournament, to face a team with whom introductions are unnecesssary.

No. 4 Idalou knocked out Canadian on Wednesday in a regional quarterfinal game at Randall High School, setting up a top-10 showdown Friday with No. 8 Tuscola Jim Ned.

The only difference is this time, they’ll face each other in the regional semifinals, not the regional finals, the round in which Idalou bounced out Jim Ned 51-44 in 2010 and 52-49 last year as part of the Wildcats’ three straight trips to the state tournament.

Idalou and Jim Ned will face each other at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Chaparral Center in Midland.

Idalou (31-3) got 22 points from Alan Zahn on Wednesday night, then withstood 10 3-point goals and a late run by Canadian (21-7).

Boston Hudson had six 3s on the way to scoring 22 points for Canadian, and Ben Arbuckle had three 3s and 19 points.

Koal Houchin and Corey Saucillo added 17 and 13 points, respectively, for Idalou.
