The Port Isabel Tarpons basketball team closed out the 2015-2016 season with huge win Monday night. In the last game of the year they took down the third-place Rio Hondo Bobcats, 92-81, in Tarpon Gym, and ended the season with as big a flourish as anyone could have asked for.
It was vindication for a Tarpons team that was beaten, 98-46, at Rio Hondo back on Jan. 22, and came in with only a single win in district play.
“They beat us pretty bad,” senior point guard Jose Atkinson told the Press the next day. “So we just wanted to prove that we weren’t as bad a team as people thought we were. We were trying to make a statement and end the season on a good note.”
