Industrial Volleyball Advances to Regional Semis

Posted: Updated:

Industrial volleyball continues its history of strong postseason play. 

The Cobras beat Johnson City in five sets on Monday to advance to the State 3A regional semifinals. That game, scheduled to be played on Friday at the Blossom Athletic Center in San Antonio against the winner of George West and London. It's the third consecutive year that the Cobras have played in the regional tournament, losing in the finals to Goliad in both 2016 and 2017. 

Kylann Griffith led the Cobras on Monday with 20 kills and 22 digs, while Lauren Williams added 13 kills and 21 digs in the winning effort. 

Start time for the regional semifinal is 1 p.m. on Friday. 

SALT LAKE CiTY (AP) - Kyle Lowry had 17 points and 11 assists to lead four Raptors with 17 points as Toronto beat the Utah Jazz 124-111 on Monday night.
    
Serge Ibaka, OG Anunoby and Fred VanVleet also had 17 points as the Raptors were bolstered with six players in double figures to win their fourth straight game.
    
The matchup lost some luster - and nearly 49 points a game - when Utah's Donovan Mitchell was ruled out with a left ankle sprain and Toronto's Kawhi Leonard sat with a sore left ankle as well.
    
Alec Burks led Utah with 22 points and Rudy Gobert had 14 points and 12 rebounds.
    
The Raptors broke the game open with a 15-3 run that bridged the second and third quarter. The spurt was capped when Danny Green hit a 3-pointer to make it 71-55 for Toronto, which stretched the lead to as many as 26 early in the final period.
    
The last time the Jazz lost four in a row at home was in the 2013-14 season when they went 25-57.
    
The Jazz got to the basket time and again but couldn't finish as the Raptors challenged them at the 3-point arc. Utah shot 8-of-31 from 3-point range, but that was skewed by the Jazz making three 3s in garbage time.
    
Despite a 21-5 deficit in free throw attempts in the first half, the Raptors made eight 3s and shot 63 percent from the field to lead 65-54 at the break.
    
HOME COOKING?
    
The Jazz haven't started 0-4 at home since their inaugural season in New Orleans in 1974-75. That season, the Jazz played in the Municipal Auditorium, and lost their first six home games until finally beating Portland behind Pete Maravich's 30 points.
    
COACH SEAT
    
Rick Pitino, who was fired in 2017 as Louisville's head coach, took in the game from a courtside seat within earshot of Utah coach Quin Synder. Accompanied by Utah Valley University coach Mark Pope who played on his 1996 Kentucky NCAA Championship team.
    
TIP-INS 
    
Raptors: Norman Powell left the game with a sprained shoulder and went straight to the locker room with 9:46 left in the second quarter. He did not return and will be evaluated on Tuesday. ... Lowry, after multiple spirited conversations with the officials, got a technical late in the third quarter.
    
Jazz: Joe Ingles dislocated his finger with 6:17 left in the game and did not return. ... Utah went 27-for-41 from the line while Toronto made 13 of their 14 attempts.
    
UP NEXT 
    
Raptors: Finish their road trip on Wednesday at Sacramento.
    
Jazz: Host Dallas on Wednesday night.
