AUSTIN -- The Fort Bend Travis Tigers are headed to the Class 5A Boys championship game for the second straight year after beating Richardson Berkner Friday night in Austin 59 to 52.

The Tigers had a rough first half against a very talented Rams team. Travis scored only 6 points in the first quarter and trailed at the half, 26 to 22.

In the second half, the Tigers came to life.

Aaron Harrison slam dunked late in the 3rd quarter to make it 34 to 32 Travis giving the Tigers their first lead of the game. It was also a lead that they would never give up.

Harrison led the Tigers in scoring with 19 points. His twin brother, Andrew, scored 18.

Even when the Tigers were struggling with their shooting from the field, they were outstanding all night long from the free throw line, making 26 of 31 free throw attempts.

Travis will next take on South Grand Prairie Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. in the Class 5A title game.
