Austin Lake Travis 86 Galveston Ball 72
I’m a little grumpy at myself for missing this one as it slipped past me that State ranked Galveston Ball was in town. Lake Travis, still riding high after an incredible 4 straight Texas 4A State Football Championships also got treated to some great basketball. Ball features 6’5″ Terran Petteway (Texas Tech) and 6’7″ Mike Evans who is also a mid major D1 prospect. Lake Travis held the two Ball stars to 9 & 8 points respectively. No easy feat as I’ve watched these two guys all summer long.
Lake Travis’ 2011 W Billy Sherekas comes to play HARD every time out.
However, Lake Travis has an X Factor in 2011 W Billy Sherekas. After coming back to the United States a couple of years ago from Belgium, the 6’4″ Sherekas plays with as much energy as anyone I’ve had the pleasure to watch/coach with the Texas D1 Ambassadors. He is a ferocious rebounder, and a streaky shooter. His shot must have been falling last night though as he dropped 36 on the visitors. G Matt Tyson also added 24 for the Cavs in the big win.
2013 stars Will Morse of Austin Westlake (left) & Leonard Allen of Round Rock are really beginning to assert themselves in their sop seasons on varsity.
Austin Westlake 73 Round Rock 71
In a nip and tuck game, Westlake found themselves down late until two three pointers from 2013 Will Morse in the last two minutes turned the tide. 2012 G R.J. Rowan led Westlake with 22 points and Morse had 17. 2013 P Leonard Allen led Round Rock with 18 points.
Pflugerville Hendrickson 75 Hutto 71
2011 W Jalen Washington dropped 24 in the win for Hendrickson
Bastrop 76 Manor 67
Now that football is behind us, Bastrop trots out one of the State’s top senior backcourts in Jordan Roach (South Alabama) 26 & Josiah Monroe (Texas-San Antonio-football) 25. 2011 G LaDarrien Williams had 25 in the loss for Manor.
Josiah Monroe (lef) of Bastrop & L.D. Willaims of Manor (right) can score with the best of them.
San Antonio Madison 54 Austin Akins 53
Getting slight revenge for last year’s playoff defeat, Madison held off an Akins surge for the W despite Yolonzo Moore’s (Hartford) 23 points.
Austin St. Michael’s 91 Hallettsville 70
Jake Kocher (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) had 44 in the win.
