LEEDS — In the end, Springville was just too much for the Green Wave to handle here on Friday night.
The Tigers ended their regular season with a 68-42 victory on the road before heading into area play.
The Tigers once again kept Leeds’ scoring to a minimum and jumped out for an early lead as Springville finished the first quarter 20-7 and pulled away 41-16 by halftime.
The Green Wave tried to tighten the score 55-30 by the end of the third, but the Tigers were able to put the game away for the win.
Springville head coach Jeremy Monceaux said he’s impressed with how his team has performed at the end of the season.
“We talked before the game about putting a stamp on the season and finishing well,” he said. “You see a lot of teams who make a run in the playoffs that always play well at the end of the season and I think we’re playing really good basketball right now and tonight was a really good performance.”
Ayden Walton was the top scorer for the Tigers with 14 points. Gavin Gooch also helped his team with 11 while Amari Cowan chipped in nine.
For Leeds, Jamal Jordan led with 11 points and Ford Barnes followed with eight.
