Tivy boys coach Brian Young showered his players with compliments while driving back from San Antonio after the Antlers’ 64-52 victory over McCollum.

He emphasized that Friday’s victory was a complete team effort, with every player on the roster contributing to the cause.

Abraham Viera? Well, the Cowboys had no answer for him in the post, as Viera bullied McCollum for a team-high 25 points. Jackson Young? He confidentally led the Antlers’ offense, finishing with 14 points. Joseph Love? He burried triples to propel the Antlers to an early lead. Will Johnston, Christian Gorham, Brooks McCoy, Tres Schreiner. Zach Layton and John Henry Hayes? They all energized the Antlers with their defense.

All those players bolstered Tivy to a 34-15 halftime lead. More importantly, they helped the Antlers improve to 5-3 in District 26-5A play to remian in fourth place in the district standings.

“The kids were really focused,” Young said. “They came out and establised a good halftime lead. ... Down the stretch, we did what we had to win a district game on the road.

“As a team, our kids were very focused and very energetic. We just played a solid basketball game.”

The Antlers will host Memorial on Tuesday.

Do the city's signage and billboard regulations need an update?

Signage has been a hot topic for discussion in our comment sections of late, with multiple variance requests going before the city's Planning and Zoning Commission regarding various signs, both digital and otherwise. Should the city update its rules regarding signs — how big, where, how many, etc. — or should the rules remain as they are?
