Third-quarter surge fuels Cooper boys past Lee

Midland Lee outscored Cooper in three of the four quarters Tuesday, but the Cougars had a strong enough third period to overcome that in a 60-57 nondistrict win on their home court.

Trailing 29-24 after halftime, the Coogs used a 19-10 advantage in the third quarter to take a four-point lead into the fourth before holding off a late Rebel rally to improve to 6-3 on the year.

Deven Bailey scored a game-high 17 points and Josh Henry followed with 16 for Cooper, which saw a 56-47 lead with 2:51 to play trimmed to three points in the final minute.
