One of the finest early season tournaments of the season is taking place in Pasadena, TX during the next three days. Unfortunately, this is the first time I’ve ever missed being there live and in person. However, that won’t keep me from giving quality updates on how the Austin & San Antonio teams are doing. In alphabetical order:
McDonald’s Texas Invitational
Fort Bend Bush 48 Austin Westlake 40
Westlake did a good job of neutralizing 2012 P 6’10” Cameron Ridley but couldn’t generate much offense of their own. No Chap reached double figures. 2013 PG Will Morse had 9 in the loss.
Austin Westlake 56 Houston Second Baptist 55
Young soph 2013 W Vince Deblasio dropped 11 points early. Meanwhile 2012 SG R.J. Rowan also had 13 clinching the game with 6 straight free throws in the final minutes.
