Republic Beats Hillcrest For Tourney Title

Republic wins the 49th Republic Invitational 69-55 over Hillcrest.
REPUBLIC, Mo--A number of high school teams tipped off the new season with tournaments last week.

And a number of those were delayed because of last week's snow. 

Wednesday night, the 49th Republic Invitational crowned a champ.

It was the hometown Tigers against Hillcrest for the title.

And first quarter action, Darnell Green-Beckham working beyond the arc, he pulls up and swishes the three, Hornets on top.

Then Cody Geigert, he drives to the rack for an easy layup, it's 4-3 Republic.

Back the other way, Juwan Johnson backing down Dylan Bekemeier, and he hits the fadeaway j, Hillcrest back on top by two.

Republic's Bekemeier feeds Geiger with the ally-oop layin, 13-11 Tigers, he led Republic with 18 points.

Then Bekemeier with the cross over dribble, the hop and the harm, three point play the hard way.

And Republic goes onto win its tourney 69-55.
