•   Ellison uses late run to slip past Temple
    It was halfway through the third quarter, and the Temple boys basketball team was outplaying Killeen Ellison in the
    Wildcats’ first home game of the season. A tough reverse lay-in by Cameron Davis off a pass from Juan Yaquian
    gave Temple a 38-31 lead, and the Wildcats seemed likely to hand an Eagles program that lost only two games last
    season its second in as many games this season. But then Ellison took over. Using their advantage inside and
    benefiting from Temple turnovers, the Eagles closed the third quarter with a 14-7 run and scored 16 of the game’s
    final 21 points to record a 65-56 win at noisy Wildcat Gym. Tall, lanky Ellison posts Chris Gallon and Chris
    Montgomery dominated shorter Temple the interior — especially in the game’s final 12 minutes — and finished with
    22 and 13 points, respectively. In fact, Gallon scored five baskets and Montgomery three during the fourth quarter.
    “They were too strong for us inside, and our post defense was non-existent,” said Temple coach Bruce Etheridge,
    whose team’s record fell to 2-1. “We could not control them, and that came back to haunt us.” Seniors Brian
    Johnson and Josh Bass led the Wildcats with 10 points apiece, juniors Freddie Kirkwood and Ronnie Martin each
    had eight, and junior Ricky Phillips scored seven. “I thought Johnson kept us in the ballgame in the first half,”
    Etheridge said. “And Ricky did an outstanding job off the bench. I’m real proud of how he played.” Matthew
    Addison chipped in with 14 points for Ellison (1-1), which went 35-2 and recahed the Class 4A Region III
    championship game last season. Temple took an early 7-4 lead on a 3-pointer by Bass, but Gallon scored a pair of
    inside hoops and a three-point play by Addison with less than a second left gave the Eagles an 18-10 advantage
    after one quarter. The Wildcats picked up their play in the second, playing tighter defense and using baskets by
    Davis, Johnson, and Kirkwood, and a Kirkwood 3 to get close before Martin hit two free throws to put Temple up 27-
    26 in the half’s final minute. Addison’s reverse lay-up with six seconds left supplied Ellison with a 28-27 edge at the
    break. Close-in baskets by Bass and Johnson and Davis’ off-balance score helped the Wildcats race out to a 38-31
    lead four minutes into the third quarter, but Gallon and Montgomery answered that run with back-to-back baskets.
    Though Brandon Howard (six assists) nailed a 3 to put Temple’s lead at 43-39, Ellison forged a 45-45 tie by the end
    of the third. A 15-foot baseline jumper by Martin gave the Cats their last lead at 51-49 with 5:48 left, but it was all
    Eagles after that. They wrapped two Montgomery baskets around two by Gallon, and Addison hit a long jumper for a
    59-51 Ellison lead. Temple answered briefly on a 3 by Martin, but the Eagles then sealed their win on baskets by
    Gallon, Montgomery, and Addison as the Wildcats struggled to come up with stops on defense and good shots on
    offense. “Right now, it’s a matter of finding the right combination of guys to put in the game,” Etheridge said. “We
    have depth, but tonight that was more of a curse than a strength. “But Ellison is a playoff team, and we’ll take this
    lesson and bounce back.” Temple next will host Dallas Woodrow Wilson at 3 p.m. Saturday at Wildcat Gym. by

•   Ellison boys win by the Gallon at Temple

•   From Staff Reports

•   TEMPLE — Chris Gallon scored 26 points — 10 in the fourth quarter — to
    lead Ellison over Temple 65-56 Tuesday.
    Matthew Addison scored 14 points and Chris Montgomery added 13 more
    to bolster the Eagles, who blew open a 45-45 game with a 20-11 fourth
    quarter.
    ''That was a great win on the road," Ellison coach Davis Manley said. "Our
    post people came up big down the stretch for us."
    Gallon, the sole remaining starter from last year's 35-2 regional finalist,
    scored the majority of his points in the paint as Ellison (1-1) dropped the
    Wildcats to 2-1 on the year.
