After continuing to hold to the eight point margin as the game neared the final buzzer the All Stars suffered an outbreak of turnovers in the final minutes, which allowed Quitman to pull within four, 28-24.

The All Stars advanced into the tour- ney finale via wins over Winnsboro and Brownsboro. Quitman defeated the local cagers in the first round of the double elimination event. The All Stars received a 2-0 forfeit from Winnsboro in their tourney opener as the visitors failed to bring the proper number of birth certificates. Despite the freebie the squads played a practice game with Malakoff winning by a decisive 50-13 margin. Marcus Hornbuckle's 18 points led a long list of All Star scorers. Bart Beasley also hit in double digits, scoring 12 points. In the initial game with Quitman the All Stars fell victim to personal fouls. Quitman used a 12 for 23 performance from the free throw line to hand the All Stars a 34-31 setback. The stars lost one player to fouls and three others finished the game with four. Beasley paced Malakoff with 14 tallies, tying Quitman's Greg Ponder for top scoring honors. Hornbuckle ad- ded nine markers to the locals' cause. Bouncing back in championship form, the All Stars garnered an im- pressive 39-31 decision over Brown- sboro in their first game in the loser's bracket. Chris Ivey and Beasley ignited the stars to a good first quarter beginning and Hornbuckle joined the effort with eight second quarter points to give Malakoff a 29-14 halftime cushion. Brownsboro bounced back in the third period, outscoring the All Stars 8- 3, to cut the lead to 27-22 going into the last quarter. Steve Gregory and Ivey added timely free throws in the last stanza to secure the win. Hornbuckle topped the scoring chart with 17 tallies followed by Beasley with 12 and Ivey with eight. Bradley Rober- tson paced Brownsboro with 10. After a slow start, the All Stars jum- ped to a quick, but slim, lead in the finale with Quitman. Aggressive defen- sive play enabled the All Stars to an 8-4 first quarter lead. The trend continued in the final stan- za and behind the shooting of the Beasley and Hornbuckle duo Malakoff was on top 18-12 at the half. Quitman managed to establish momentum in the opening minutes of the third period, tying the score at 22-22 with three minutes elapsed. At this point Eric Clendenning hit two big buckets to place the All Stars back in front. Trailing 30-22 as the final quarter began, quitman's Michael Landers chalked up eight straight markers to knot the score at 30-30. Beasley and Ivey chalked up tallies in the closing minutes and the defense held Quitman scoreless to secure the national tourney berth.
