BB Hugo at Paris

Hugo senior William King (10) drives to the basket and shoots a layup as Paris senior Trevon Dennis (23) defends and Paris sophomore Jaelyn Lee, behind, looks on.

Wildcat Gymnasium was totally packed on Friday night when the Hugo Buffaloes came to town to face the No. 18-ranked Paris Wildcats of Class 4A. The gym was not only full capacity, but was full of energy from both teams and their fanbases. The electric atmosphere set up for a game that lived up to the hype.

Both Paris and Hugo battled it out in a close contest throughout, until Paris was able to pull away in the third quarter. Hugo would not go away as the Buffaloes made it interesting in the fourth, but Paris made a few more clutch plays down the stretch, holding off Hugo for a thrilling 77-65 win.
