Festus boys ready to break through hoops ceiling

(Festus) The Festus Tigers believe that they’re headed for a breakthrough in boys’ basketball.

After going 12-14 and finishing second in the JCAA Large-School Divison with a younger roster, Festus brings back all but 2 varsity players.

Tigers head coach Jason Therrell believes his guys are ready for the big time.

After a sluggish start, young point guard Arhmad Branch’s insertion into the starting lineup jolted the Tigers.

Therrell thinks the sophomore is taking his game to the next level.

Festus started its season Tuesday night with a 73-51 victory over Northwest.
