Two minutes into Thursday night’s contest between Western Tech and New Town, the Wolverines’ Andre Jackson canned a runner to put his squad up 4-2.

After that shot, the Titans outscored Western Tech 33-7 over the final 14 minutes of the first half—a prolonged run that included two separate 11-0 spurts—on the way to a dominating, 57-40 road victory.

Benched in the first quarter due to a coach's decision, he was eager to make up for lost time, forcing off-balance shots and passes. He was even called for fouling Hereford's Joey Jones, who scored 27 points on the night, on a three point shot…
