BELL BUCKLE -- The Webb Feet fought hard on Tuesday night against the USN Tigers, but the Tigers proved to be too strong as the Feet fell 57-30.

Webb's Branson Popp got off to a hot start, going 3-for-3 during the first half of the opening frame.

The Feet played close the entire first quarter until the Tigers scored five points in the last 40 seconds, extending the lead to 19-9.

Things were slower for the Feet in the second quarter as Webb could only muster up five points, which led to a 31-14 deficit at the half.

Webb came out of the locker room a little more explosive in the third as they were able to put 10 points on the board, but the defense just could not contain the Tigers as they were able to score 16 points and finally put the game out of reach.

Chase Hullett and Branson Popp led the way for Webb, accounting for 19 of their 30 points. Ashton Hood led the way for the Tigers with a game-high 17 points.

The Feet will look to rebound with a trip to Franklin Road Academy on Friday, with the opening tip-off scheduled to follow the Lady Feet's game at 6 p.m.
