In one of the city’s most spirited rivalries, the Central Catholic Buttons made it a clean sweep of the season series as they beat arch rival Antonian Apaches in a Saturday matchup in San Antonio. The first time, CC gained control early and were never really challenged. Last night’s contest was different. It was all knotted at 65 after a topsy turvy 4th quarter.
The last guy you’d want with the ball in his hands as the clock runs down is Central’s Cole Martinez. The 6’2″ shooting machine fired up his last shot of the game and it was good!…at the buzzer. This capped off another great evening as he finished with 33 points and sending the Antonian faithful home grumbling. (His previous effort was 29 points, 10 rebounds 5 assists in a win vs St. Anthony’s). See his winning shot here on You Tube!
Antonian’s D1 duo of Jonathan Holmes (Texas-24) and Darrious Hamilton (Boise State-19) were a load to handle but this day belonged to Martinez and the Buttons. Looking down the road, it’s likely that Antonian will be headed for a playoff matchup vs Houston St. Thomas who I had a chance to see play on Friday night. St. Thomas will bring three D1 level guys as well as they have three talented 2012 players in 6’9″ shotblocker extraordinaire, Jeremy King, CG Chase Brogna a lights out shooter & CG Christian Sanders who also can fill it up. St. Thomas won a nail biter in an early season tournament on South Padre Island.
San Antonio Roosevelt 44 San Antonio MacArthur 40 (OT)
In a rare Saturday, public school game, the Roughriders outscored Mac 5-1 in the OT session in the upset win despite the Brahmas getting 18 points from 2012 G Matt Gramling.
Austin St. Michael’s 77 Austin St. Anthony’s 60
Jake Kocher (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) kept up his hot scoring pace as he dropped 33 in the win.
Austin Waldorf 79 Marble Falls Faith 39
2013 G Victor Garate had 19 in the win to go along with Senior Santiago Paredes 22.
San Antonio Clark 57 San Antonio Stevens 56
2012 W Uche Ofoegbu couldn’t put the Falcons over the top in a squeaker as he dropped 21 points in the loss.
San Antonio Churchill 94 San Antonio Lee 67
Senior Clark Lammert had 22 in the lopsided win where the Chargers emptied the bench getting their entire roster involved.
San Antonio Taft 80 San Antonio Brandeis 65
Taft is dangerous! It’s a guard heavy group and they’re tough to guard when they spread the floor. Seniors Deondre Logan (22), Dylan Elias (Northern Colorado-17) & Marshall Harris (Citadel-17) led the attack.
Converse Judson 63 New Braunfels 34
Coach Mike Wacker is gearing his squad up for another playoff run. Senior Cameron Griffin’s 17 led the way. 2012 Kyle Hittle had 11 for the Unicorns.
San Antonio Warren 68 San Antonio Holmes 59
2012 Wg Jerel Ellis had 26 in the win
Alamo Heights 50 Hays 38
2012 W Jeremy Rodewald had 15 & 2012 F 6’7″ Shelby Lane added 17 as Heights continues to pile up the wins.

Marble Falls 44 Cedar Park 52
Austin High 62 Austin Westlake 53
The Marooons were led by Seniors Alex Reinking & Eric McClellan with 15 a piece. Westlake Junior R.J. Rowan led all scorers with 18.
Bastrop 79 Pflugerville Hendrickson 72
The Bears got a big home win as Josiah Monroe (UT-San Antonio football) had 22. Jalen Washington of Hendrickson led all scorers with 30.
Pflugerville 71 Round Rock Westwood 55
The Ville cruised in this one, with 4 players nabbing double digit scoring inclusing 2013 PG T.J. Williams with 10.
Cedar Park 74 Marble Falls 44
CP tamed the Mustangs behind Dylan Cox (Army) 21 points.
Austin Bowie 75 Austin Akins 60
Akins’ Yolonzo Moore (Hartford) had 25 points but 2012 G Paul Baxter negated that with 23 of his own while Senior Connor Robinson went to work down low and poured in 37, most of them from within 5 feet of the bucket as the Eagles had no answer for him on the blocks.
San Antonio Churchill 96 San Antonio Reagan 84
The marquee’ matchup in the Alamoc City was the District 26-5A matchup between San Antonio Reagan & San Antonio Churchill. Their first encounter in late December saw Reagan come out on fire and never be seriously challenged. Tonight’s game followed a similar blueprint, but this time it was Churchill hitting a good clip early and often. They were in control the entire game and never trailed as they cruised to a 96-84 win. Hot shooting and lax defense all around were the order of the day. There could well be a rubber match as both teams are talented and could be on a collision course as the playoffs get underway next month. However, somewhere in all of this a talented San Antonio Taft squad could rear up and crash the party.
The Firm of Lammert & Lammert: To the left, Senior partner Clark & to the right junior Connor
Reagan’s Max Yon (Air Force) led all scorers with 29 points, while team mate Tre Demps (Northwestern) had 26, including 16 in the first quarter where he was en fuego including making two floaters which would have made Papa Dell Demps (New Orleans Hornets GM) proud. Demps is really adding depth to his game as he prepares to make his way in the Big Ten Conference.
However, on this night the thrill of victory belonged to Churchill and their leaders, the Lammert Brothers. Unsigned Senior, Clark led the way with 24 points while 2012 F Connor had 17 points and 12 rebounds. At 6’9″ Connor Lammert has established himself as one of the premier “bigs” in Texas. He’s only 16, and with his birthday far away into August oozes big time potential. Toss in quality grades too and it’s a wrap.
Converse Wagner 67 Cibolo Steele 60
Senior Devonta Davis had 13 as the Thunderbirds continue their winning ways in spite of graduating Andre Roberson (Colorado) & Jordan Clarkson (Tulsa)).
New Braunfels 71 Seguin 65
Three sport star, Senior Brig Gerlich led Seguin with 21 but 2012 W Kyle Hittle’s 17 for a balanced Unicorns team led them to the win.
San Antonio Warren 62 San Antonio Clark 60
Clark was missing two starters and still gave Warren a tough time. Too much 2012 F Taurean Prince-Waller as he had 21 points, double digit rebounds and a game saving block as time ran out with Clark going for the tie. 2011 F Ansley Benjamin led Clark with 23 points.
San Antonio Brandeis 64 San Antonio O’Connor 60
Two young teams went to to toe with 2013 G Justin Graham taking care of business by dropping 17 in the win. O’Connor has some good young players. I like the athleticism of 2013 G Dapo Ogunfeitimi who had 9 points in the loss.
2013 G Justin Graham continues to shine as one of the area’s top young floor generals.
San Antonio Taft 49 San Antonio Marshall 30
Northern Colorado bound Dylan Elias had 12 points to lead the Raiders to the easy victory.
Alamo Heights 77 Lockhart 44
2012 F Jeremy Rodewald does it all for a very good Alamo Heights team as he dropped 25 points and was all over the floor.
New Braunfels Canyon 59 Smithson Valley 37
2012 W Ian Gulick led a balanced Canyon attack with 17 points in an easy one, as they ready for their return district showdown with Alamo Heights on the road at the Mule Dome.
Kerrville Tivy 43 Uvalde 42
In what I understand was a 12-10 game at the half?????…Kerrville Tivy won a barn burner vs Uvalde. G Deron Belford (Texas State) had a decisive block on the last play of the game against Uvalde Senior Jeremy Espinoza for the big win. Belford added 14 ponts while freshman Matt Perry added 13. Espinoza, who is Uvalde’s 1st, 2nd & 3rd option inside and out had 27 in the tough loss.
