Shooters gotta shoot, even if they’re in a slump, and Jaxon Heth fashions himself a shooter. So does his coach.

So does everyone else who watched him Tuesday night.

Heth went off for 21 points, hitting six 3-pointers, five in the first half as No. 6 CF built a double-digit lead. That included about a 30-footer from the volleyball line just before the halftime buzzer that put the Tigers ahead, 33-21.

With West trailing, 53-52, Ben Vander Leest drove along the baseline and was fouled with 3.7 seconds left. He converted both free throws and handed Hempstead its first loss.
