(Universal City) - The District 27-3A boys basketball championship belongs to the Marion Bulldogs after a tightly contested 59-55 road win over Randolph on Friday in Universal City.

Marion moved its district record to 13-0, its overall mark to 25-6, and its winning streak to 15 games in taking a two-game lead over the second-place Ro-Hawks (11-2 dist.) with just one game left on the 27-3A schedule.

Senior guard Creet Rabenaldt scored 16 points, hit two of his four threes, and made all eight of his free throws to lead the Bulldogs offensively.

Jacob Wallace added 15 points and five rebounds. Zach Goodwin reached double figures with 11 points and went 2-3 from three-point range. Tyler Bridges barely missed a double-double, coralling a team-high 10 rebounds to go with eight points. Jackson Allen contributed six points, six rebounds, and three assists, and Brevin Wilson hit a three to round out the scoring.

Marion led 12-7 at the end of the first quarter, and took an eight-point cushion, 23-15, into halftime. Randolph edged the Bulldogs 14-13 in the third period to make it a seven-point contest heading into the fourth quarter, but the Ro-Hawks only shaved three off the deficit in the final frame.

The Bulldogs overcame 39.6 percent shooting overall by hitting 5-of-14 threes, 16-of-21 free throws (76.2 percent) and committing just three turnovers on the night.

Randolph drained eight threes in 17 attempts, but the Ro-Hawks missed 15 of their 28 free throws and turned the ball over 10 times.

Marion concludes the regular seson Tuesday with a 7:30 p.m. home game against Luling.
