Wednesday's Boys results:

Tenaha 53, Port Aransas 42 FINAL: The Tigers were playing their first game of the season since most of their players were on the football team that played for the championship six days ago. Tenaha's shooting was off, but their defense seemed to be ingood form as it recorded five steals, an offensive charge and a 5-second inbounds violation in the first half. The Tigers also held the Marlins to just three points in the second period.
