LUFKIN â€” Angelina rallied past Tyler Junior College in the second half as the Roadrunners defeated the Apaches 70-65 Saturday night in a Region XIV basketball conference game.
The Apaches (8-3, 0-2) rallied from a 26-20 halftime deficit to take a 33-26 advantage.
However, the Roadrunners came to get the win.
â€śWhen we had them on the ropes, we took three really bad shots,â€ť TJC coach Mike Marquis said. â€śWhen we do that, weâ€™re not very good. When weâ€™ve been most effective weâ€™ve been attacking, and getting to the free throw line.â€ť
Anthony Odunsi led TJC with 16 points, while DeAndre Harris had 11 points. Taâ€™Jon Welcome added 10.
Jaylen Daniel and LaDerrien Jackson each hit for 19 points to pace Angelina.
