“We are starting to hit our stride and it is the right time.”

Port St. Joe opened the tournament with a 76-48 win over Tallavanna Christian.

Clemons led the way with 20 points while Williams added 19 and Kyran Batson 17.

In the semifinals, Port St. Joe stayed with Tallahassee Lincoln for most of the game but faded in the final minutes of a 52-39 loss, sending the Tiger Sharks into the consolation bracket.

“It was really a good game,” Kurnitsky said of the Lincoln contest. “We were down by only six heading into the final quarter and we just kind of ran out of gas.”

Williams led Port St. Joe with 14 points.

The Tiger Sharks traveled to Lynn Haven Mosley on Tuesday and host West Gadsden at 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday.
