Coming into this week, the East High Tigers felt really good about themselves having won three in a row over Briggs, Walnut Ridge and Linden to even their record at 5-5.

With the win on Tuesday over Linden, still looming was Mifflin on Friday and Watterson on Saturday.

The Tigers had a complete meltdown in the fourth quarter against a pressing, fast-breaking Mifflin team and lost 82-78 on’s HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE.

Then comes Saturday and a meeting with tough Central Catholic League power, Bishop Watterson.

The result was a disappointing week when they felt they could win all three if not two of the games.

Bryan Jackson led the Eagles with a season-high 26 points and 11 rebounds for host Watterson who improves to 7-1 after the 57-32 win over East.

The Tigers dropped two games under .500 at 5-7.

Watterson led 17-9 at the end of the first quarter. But East closed to within 22-16 at the half. The Eagles took total control in the 3rd quarter with a 15-8 run to move the score to 37-24 and the rout was on.
