No. 1 in Class 3A Totino-Grace trailed for most of the game until about two minutes left in regulation when senior Demarion Watson grabbed a rebound and scored. For the exclamation point, he dunked the basketball again for a six-point lead that his team didn’t give up.
The Eagles (3-1) found their way back for a 61- 58 victory over No. 2-ranked DeLaSalle Saturday at the 2021 Big 12 Classic boys’ basketball tournament at Totino-Grace High School.
Watson finished with 12 points, while junior Taison Chatman scored a team-high 18 points. DeLaSalle (3-3) sophomore Cash Chavis scored a game-high 21 points.
