In their first meeting since 2005, the short-handed Poplar Bluff Mules fell 85-60 to the Vashon Wolverines in the 3rd place game of the 30th annual Poplar Bluff Showdown.

Willie Lucas tallied 20 points, 8 rebounds, and 1 assist for the Mules, to pace the team, while Rodney Houston chipped in 13 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals.

As a team, the Mules sank 20/50 shots for a total of 60 points, while racking up 32 rebounds, 15 assists, 10 steals, 4 blocks, 20 turnovers and 19 fouls.

As a team, the Wolverines dropped 31/61 shots for a total of 85 points, while racking up 36 rebounds, 15 steals, 2 blocks, 16 turnovers, and 18 fouls.

Vashon was a very good team and had a lot of great athletes. They put a lot of pressure on our guards and were physical in the post. I feel like our team battled with them and we are going to take the experience and use it to get better for districts. The coaching staff was pleased with our team’s overall performance during the ShowDown. They played hard every game and competed against some great teams. While we would have liked to win every game, we feel like it was a productive Christmas break,” said Coach Will Durden on both Vashon, and the effort of his team.

The 10-5 Poplar Bluff Mules will take on the Caruthersville Tigers at home, on Saturday, Jan. 21st, at 12:00 p.m.
