Coppell 65 El Paso Socorro 38
This one was a runaway as Senior D.J. Feitl led a balanced Socorro attack with 12 points. Senior Enrique Jimenez had 13 for a game, but overmatched El Paso Socorr squad.
Pflugerville El Paso Montwood
It’s easy to see why Montwood rules El Paso basketball on a regular basis and is always a threat to go deep into the State playoffs. They’re well coached by Tony Harper and the players understand their roles. However, there is no 6’7″ Roman Martinez (New Mexico) this time around so they are undersized. It all came down to not being able to handle Pflugerville’s guards (but then again not many teams can).
Deon Mitchell (Northern Iowa) had a smooth 20 while also grabbing 5 boards & 5 steals. 2011 Jamaal Shabazz had 15 points & 5 boards, while 2011 Darrian Dempsey also added 11 for The Ville. Montwood consistently scored from the free throw line as Senior Robert Lopez dropped 25 to lead all scorers. The majority of them came from the same spot on the floor, off the same cuts. Senior Gabriel Lincon had the hot hand early for Montwood from the perimeter as he scored 16 before Pflugerville started to deny him the ball.
Deon Mitchell, seen below signing with Northern Iowa, was cashing the checks for Pflugerville as he went to work today as he dropped 20 on El Paso Montwood.
Duncanville 75 Westbury 40
Austin Westlake 60 El Paso Socorro 38
Westlake played an uninspired first half with their best play being a half court 3 pointer by Will Morse to end the 1st quarter. After trailing 18-13 at the half, Coach Eliis must have gotten in their ears pretty well as Westlake came out with guns blazing and scored 30 in the 3rd period to take command 43-25. The entire Chaps roster contributed something to the effort.
2012 G R.J. Rowan had an inspired 2nd half as he scored 17 points, 2013 G Vince Deblasio added 8 points and fellow soph Will morse had 8 points and 6 assists. For Socorro, Seniors Kyle Brito had 11 and Enrique Jimenez added 10.
Pflugerville 71 Houston Westbury 51
This one was never in doubt from the opening whistle. At the half, with Pflugerville subbing liberally they go to the locker room with a 36-17 lead. Pflugerville rested the majority of it’s starters from the midpoint of the 3rd. Deon Mitchell led with 16 points, getting to the goal whenever he wanted. Cameron Blue & Jamal Shabazz both had 6 boards.
2012 G Chris Hynes dropped 16 for Westbury. Their best player was 2013 F Donivan Jones who had 16 points & 7 boards.
