The Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School boys’ basketball team evened its record while finishing third at the Tallahassee Maclay Holiday Hoops Fest.

The Tiger Sharks took down the host school 46-38 to finish third in the three-day tournament.

T.J. Williams, who scored 28 points against Maclay in the consolation game, was named to the all-tournament team.

Sergio Clemons added eight points against Maclay.

Starting four sophomores and with just two seniors – one Natrone Lee just returned from an ankle injury suffered during the football season and pulled down 12 rebounds against Maclay – the season has presented a learning curve for Port St. Joe and Coach Derek Kurnitsky.

That the Tiger Sharks have arrived at the midway point of the season 7-7 overall is a positive, Kurnitsky said.

“We are really playing hard and playing smart basketball,” Kurnitsky said. “The kids are really buying in to what we are teaching them and they are really improving. I have been impressed.
