Callaway put on a show in front of the home crowd in its 88-51 victory over Harris County on Saturday.

It was DeShun Coleman’s game as he left the Tiger defense reeling all night. Coleman led all scorers in the game with 23 points. 

Coleman set the tone early for Callaway, scoring 11 points in the first quarter which helped the Cavaliers take a five point lead after the first quarter. Callaway had six players score in the second quarter — none of the named Coleman — as the Cavaliers took command and led 40-27 at halftime.

The Cavaliers kept pouring it on in the second half as the lead was never in any doubt with the Tigers not able to mount a rally.

Bryceton Sanders is starting to find a role with the Cavaliers this season. He exploded for nine points in the fourth quarter and finished with 17 points with three 3-pointers. D’Arcy Harris and  Tyrus Edwards each scored 10 points in the game. Natorrius Truitt scored all eight of his points in the fourth quarter. 11 total Cavaliers scored in the game.

With wins on back-to-back nights, the Cavaliers have gotten back above .500 (8-7). Callaway sits second in region 5-2A with a 7-3 region record. The Cavaliers will be back on the court against Landmark Christian on the road next Tuesday.
