The Alice Coyotes were doing what they could to slow the Corpus Christi Moody Trojans Tuesday night.

Alice was aggressive in its early full-court press, but Moody managed to break the defense and find the basket with some consistency on its way to a 69-54 victory.

The Trojans were sitting on a 19-11 lead going into the second period, and it was in those eight minutes they pulled away by outscoring the Coyotes, 22-7. Moody went into halftime leading comfortably, 41-18. The Coyotes made it competitive in the second half, but the game already belonged to the Trojans.

Jared Siprian led Alice with 17 points. He scored six in the final quarter. Ramiro Chavez scored 13 for Alice and John Leija scored 12.
