Yates High School advances in playoffs with staggering victory over Columbia

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The high school basketball playoffs continued around the area Monday night, highlighted with a staggering 107-point victory.

The Yates High School Lions took on the West Columbia Roughnecks.

Yates took control of the entire game from the jump.

The Lions led 32-8 to end the first quarter, thanks in part to Yates dominating every aspect on the floor.

The school's basketball team is no stranger to huge wins. In January 2010, Yates set a new state record with a 170-35 win over Lee High School.

At the time, the defeat raised questions over whether Yates was fair in pushing up the score or if it was bad sportsmanship.

A few weeks later in a rematch with Lee, the Lions hammered them again, this time 125-26.

Fast forward nearly a decade, and it's clear Yates has held on to its winning ways.

Yates High School Principal Tiffany Guillory tweeted photos from Monday night's playoff victory.



Yates will advance to the next round after their 141-34 win.
