After whipping up on Mabank at the Fairfield Invitational in December, the No. 18 ranked Mexia Blackcats had their hands full this time on their home court, barely coming away with a 10-point win, 47-37.

Mexia led at the half, 25-18, but Mabank outscored the Blackcats in the third period, 14-9, to cut their seven-point deficit down to two, 34-32.

The Blackcats bounced back in the final period to hold on for the win.

Danny Huckaby and Curk Harris were the only Mexia players to score in double figures. Huckaby finished the rare day game with 12 points, while Harris dished in 11.
