Lanier (10-11, 3-0) remained undefeated in District 28-5A Dec. 19 after surviving a threat from Brackenridge (7-8, 1-2) at the Alamo Convocation Center. The Voks rallied to win 73-70 in overtime.

Two juniors stepped up to help the Voks stave off the Eagles as overtime wound down. Raul Solis (21 points), a post forced to play point guard because of Lanier’s foul trouble, drove for a three-point play with 28 seconds remaining. Guard Joe Soto (8 points) made two free throws with 8.5 seconds to clinch the win.

“It was a great game,” first-year Lanier coach Joseph Martinez said. “It was back and forth the whole way. We struggled on offense early, but we stuck with it.”

Brackenridge led 37-36 at halftime and 50-46 after three quarters. Junior center Richard Wallace led the Eagles with 26 points. Isiah Saenz chipped in 18 points. Jalen Davis scored nine.

Solis was Lanier’s top scorer. James Castellano scored 12 points, C.J. Salazar had 11 and Isaiah Vargas finished with nine.

BOYS BASKETBALL: Defensive change helps Jefferson subdue Sam Houston

Mustangs hold off Hurricanes’ late push

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Jefferson, Sam Houston.

Jefferson doesn’t usually employ a zone defense, but Mustangs coach Eric de los Santos decided he needed to go with prevailing opinion.

Results this year have shown that Sam Houston has struggled against a zone, as first-year coach Erik Coleman admitted after the Mustangs’ 49-40 win Dec. 19 at the Alamo Convocation Center. It was easy to understand why Jefferson’s active 2-3 zone became Jefferson’s weapon of choice.

In fact, de los Santos said he’d had the defense in his back pocket for a couple of weeks. Jefferson (8-8, 1-2) had been drilling on it in practice for that long and learned its lessons well.

“Sam Houston is a team that wants to run,” he said. “They’re so athletic, we couldn’t match up. We needed to stop their penetration and turn them into jump shooters.”

The Hurricanes (2-10, 0-3), who won their first two games over the previous weekend, fell behind 13-4 at the outset. They closed the gap to 38-34 with 5:53 remaining, but never led.

“Going against a 2-3 zone has been our downfall,” Coleman said. “Working against a zone, you have to have a lot of patience. You also have to hit some shots, and we weren’t doing that. We were executing our offense well, but we weren’t getting the put-backs.”

Jefferson guard Dominick Perez (14 points) hit two three-point shots in the Mustangs’ opening flurry. Sophomore post Noah Soto (16 points, 12 rebounds) blocked a shot and drove the length of the court to convert a layup. Jefferson dictated the game’s energy from the start against the dangerous Hurricanes.

“I was just trying to get in my rhythm,” Perez said. “I was trying to get some points. I wanted to pick us up because we were 0-2 (in district).”

With 3:05 left in the first half, a three-point basket by Sam Houston junior Robert Christian (21 points, 7 rebounds) brought the Hurricanes within 17-15. Another basket by Christian on an assist from Dewayne Brown tied it 19-19 at the half.

Jefferson scored the first seven points in the second half. Raymonte Prime scored on a drive to reduce the Hurricanes’ deficit to four early in the fourth quarter, but the Mustangs responded. Soto made a fadeaway jumper and Perez notched a layup to extend Jefferson’s lead.

“We wanted to make them play our game,” Perez said. “We didn’t want to play their game.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: Southside survives rough trip to Laredo Martin

Cardinals recover in the stretch to seize win

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Southside.

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK TO THE SOUTHSIDE REPORTER WEBSITE:

 

Southside’s first District 29-5A game brought the desired result and, in retrospect, maybe by the best-possible route.

As with any trip to Laredo, though, getting there was the hardest part. The Cardinals (9-6, 1-0) had to overcome a deficit in the final two minutes to secure a 68-61 win at Laredo Martn Dec. 19 in the district opener for both teams.

“That’s actually the first time they’ve fought adversity like that,” Southside coach Jessica Macias-Cardenas said. “It surprised me. It was a really good win for our team.”

Southside led throughout most of the game, building a 35-24 halftime. Martin rallied behind Anissa Lazcano, who scored 18 points in the third quarter alone. Lazcano finished with 36.

“(Nixon) just kept fighting,” Macias-Cardenas said, “even when they were down by 18. They didn’t care. They took it to us.”

When the Tigers finally wiped out the halftime deficit and took the lead, a pair of free throws from freshman

Klarissa Quintana (9 points) regained it for the Cardinals. Southside’s leading scorer, Desirae Arocha (21 points), clinched the win with a driving layup. Arocha was fouled on the play and converted the resulting free throw.

Arocha, Quintana and Amalia Alexander all start for the Cardinals as freshmen.

“They bring a lot to the team,” Macias-Cardenas said. “Amalia is not very big, but she’s our leading rebounder. Desirae and Klarissa are very good, solid guards. That’s kind of scary, because they’re still freshmen.”

Junior Mayra Sendejo contributed 16 points and Cassandra Aguilar added eight.

“I think, by now, the girls really know their roles and rotations,” the first-year coach said. “We’re actually changing it up. (Senior Kat Mancha) and Aguilar will start against teams where we need a big lineup. If we need a shorter lineup, we’ll change up the line up as well. We’re very fortunate to be able to do that.”

BOYS BASKETBALL WEEKLY REPORT: McCollum extracts momentum from Harlandale ISD tourney

SACS, Harlandale big tourney winners

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Burbank, Central Catholic, Harlandale, Kennedy, McCollum, Memorial, Sam Houston.

McCollum started the season strong under first-year coach Marcus Alvarado, but by the Harlandale ISD Tournament, it needed to recapture a little bit of that spark.

The Cowboys (8-8) did exactly that in the two-day tournament it co-hosted with Harlandale. McCollum split its four tournament games, winning the last two Saturday after dropping a couple of close ones.

As it approached the final day, McCollum had lost five of the previous six games.

“I feel we had a good start this year,” Alvarado said. “Then we did hit a little bit of a rough patch, but that’s to be expected. The guys have responded going into district. The practices have been really intense and they’re very focused on what we want to do.”

Harlandale (12-6) fared best among area entries, winning three of its four games. Central Catholic (7-10) split its games. Kennedy (6-9) and Memorial (7-11) each claimed one win in the tournament.

Harlandale’s only loss came against San Antonio Christian, which breezed through its four tournament games without a loss. McCollum played the closest game against the Lions, falling 64-58 Friday.

Jay edged the Cowboys 52-50 in McCollum’s tournament opener.

“They hit a shot with two seconds left,” Alvarado said. “It was a tough shot. We had an opportunity to (win) both of those games. We gave ourselves a chance.”

McCollum triumphed 60-59 over Central Catholic in another nail-biter Saturday and closed the two-day event with a 70-59 win over Kennedy.

Against Central Catholic, McCollum raced to a 41-30 halftime lead. However, the Buttons outscored McCollum 14-4 in the third quarter and stayed close thereafter despite playing without injured 6-foot-10 senior center Tony Lewis.

Sophomore Santiago Vasquez led McCollum wth 17 points. Angel Loera added 11 points and post Roger Martinez, whom Alvarado said emerged during the tournament, had 10. Noah Garcia scored nine points.

“Central Catholic came back and took a five- or six-point lead in the fourth quarter,” Alvarado said. “The guys responded really well. It was really good that we got to experience that kind of competition and that kind of game.”

Raul Aguilar led Central Catholic with 16 points. Thomas Andry and Robert Elizondo scored 13 and 10, respectively. Julian Rodriguez contributed nine points.

Martinez scored a team-high 17 points for the Cowboys against Kennedy. Vasquez and Steven Villarreal each recorded 11 points. Jose Guajardo chipped in nine.

Kennedy had four players in double figures, led by Marc Esquivel’s 18 points. Andrew Rivera (15 points), Julian Landeros (12) and Isaac Castro (10) were the Rockets’ other top scorers.

McCollum began the week with another close loss. Lanier (7-10, 1-0) defeated the Cowboys 70-62 Tuesday in the district opener for both teams.

Alvarado said his goal for the tournament was to get additional players into the games. McCollum has played between eight and 13 players each game.

“Everybody responded very well,” he said, “which allowed us to get some momentum going back into our district schedule.”

Harlandale claimed tournament wins over Carrizo Springs ( 62-41) and Memorial (54-45) Friday. The Indians also defeated Kennedy Dec. 13.

San Antonio Christian defeated Harlandale 52-41 Dec. 13 in the de facto championship game of the round-robin tournament. Senior Ram Torres scored 23 points for the Indians. Ryan Blanquiz added seven points.

Central Catholic defeated Memorial 70-65 and nipped Jay 74-70 Saturday.

Aguilar supplied 18 points against Jay. Senior Tanner Nagel and Rodriguez each scored 16. Individual statistics for Memorial were unavailable.

Sam Houston

The Hurricanes (2-8) picked up their first two wins of the season at the River City Classic last weekend. While playing a difficult schedule, Sam Houston was winless in six games going into the tournament, after reaching the Class 3A state tournament last season.

Sam Houston split its four tournament games at New Braunfels Canyon. The Hurricanes defeated New Braunfels 63-56 in its tourney opener Friday. After falling 50-40 to Waco Midway later in the day and 52-45 to Marshall Saturday, the Hurricanes finished the tournament with a 54-50 win over O’Connor.

The Hurricanes outscored New Braunfels 10-3 in overtime. Junior Robert Christian scored a team-high 20 points for Sam Houston. Raymonte Prime (13 points) and Jawon Anderson (11) also reached double digits. Against O’Connor, Christian produced 21 points and Anderson scored 12.

The Hurricanes’ sixth loss was a 60-40 decision Tuesday against Burbank (13-4, 1-0) at the Lanier Athletic Center. The game was the District 28-5A opener for both teams.

Burbank

In addition to their first district win over Sam Houston, the Bulldogs (2-8) split two games last weekend in the Pride of Texas Tournament at Corpus Christi Tuloso-Midway.

Juan Castillo scored 17 points and Jordan Santos added 15 in the win against Beeville. Alejandro Manjarrez and Nathaniel Rodriguez chipped in with nine and eight, respectively.

Castillo again led the Burbank offense with 15 points against Brazosport. Michael Mascorro (12 points) and Moses Betancourt (10) also were in double figures. Matthew Juarez scored nine.

East Central likes the view from where it’s standing.

The Hornets (8-5), who finished third in the SAISD Tournament Saturday, have been non-traditional in recent seasons. In short, they’ve had some height.

This year’s model will look familiar to old-school East Central fans. The vertically challenged Hornets are a throwback to the running, full-court pressing, half-court harassing style that the school’s storied tradition was built upon.

“This team plays together,” East Central coach Jeff Sweet said. “They have a lot of energy offensively, but they feed off playing defense. I think they’re going to get better.”

East Central turned on the jets after MacArthur closed within five points in the third-place game at the Alamo Convocation Center. The Hornets finished the game on a 24-10 run for a 68-49 victory.

Senior Garrett White supplied 17 points and East Central forced nine turnovers in the final quarter. White and senior leader Brandon Keno each scored 20.

Keno, at 6-foot-2, is one of the tallest Hornets as well as the lone returning 2013-14 starter. He’s one of eight seniors on the roster.

“We lost four guys (to graduation),” Sweet said. “But we’ve got a lot of guys for whom it’s their senior year and they’ve waited their turn. They were ready to step up and play.”

East Central reached the semifinals with a 76-54 win over Littleton (Colo.) Heritage and a 72-65 victory over Holmes Friday. The Hornets lost 69-58 to runner-up Clark in the semis Saturday.

In the third-place game, MacArthur’s Jonathan Martin began the second half with a go-ahead layup. The Brahmas were within 44-41 at the 5:46 mark of the fourth quarter. White responded with three consecutive baskets and a pair of free throws, stretching East Central’s lead to 52-43.

The Hornets’ District 28-6A rival, South San (10-3), reached the consolation finals in the three-day tournament, which began Thursday. The Bobcats dropped a 55-49 overtime heartbreaker to Wagner in the bracket championship game.

South San established a 12-9 lead in the first quarter, as senior post Andre Flores scored eight points.

A layup from senior point guard Olando Lopez gave the Bobcats a 19-15 lead with 4:01 until halftime. South San, which struggled with turnovers, went scoreless for the next nine minutes and 21 seconds.

South San battled back to lead most of the fourth quarter. A three-pointer by Art Rangel made it 43-42 with 31.8 seconds left in regulation, but Wagner managed a tying free throw and took the lead with a six-point spurt in overtime.

“(Wagner) has a very talented basketball team,” South San coach Ray Carroll said. “They deserved to win that game.

“We went nearly 10 minutes without a basket. I don’t know too many teams that can win that way.”

The other area entrants were Highlands (5-10) and Southwest (5-6). Highlands edged St. Anthony 62-60 in its tournament opener, but wasn’t able to muster another win. The Dragons began with a 58-51 loss to eventual champion Brandeis, but weren’t able to claim a win.

Southwest led Smithson Valley 25-23 early in the third quarter. The Dragons inched ahead again on a three-point shot from four-year veteran Aaron Embry, a scoop shot off a steal from Jovani Oranday and a free throw from freshman D’Andre Griffin.

Embry hit a fadeaway jumper in the closing seconds of the quarter for a 38-37 advantage. Smithson Valley answered with an 18-2 run and won 58-42.

“We have to be more consistent,” first-year Southwest coach Lance Linscomb said. “We played Brandeis within seven, but we have all the markings of a young team. We have to keep improving and growing.”

Southwest has plenty of talent. Now it’s finding ways to blend its abilities together, and that should concern its District 28-6A rivals.

Junior wing Alexandra Busby said the Dragons (12-4) unlocked some of their potential Friday in a 48-35 non-district win over Judson (8-9) at Southwest.

“We’re learning to suck it up and play (through) our mental mistakes,” said Busby, who led Southwest with 15 points. “We didn’t pout. Tonight, we were really positive. We played well the whole game.

“We were a much different team.”

The victory extended the Dragons’ winning streak to three games. They’ve won four of their last five.

“We had that little stretch in the fourth quarter where we stopped scoring,” Southwest coach Bill Avey said. “Fortunately, for the most part, we took it to them.”

Judson’s press bothered the Dragons on their first few possessions, but Southwest then made crisp passes and used them to set up good shots. It also attacked the glass relentlessly.

Southwest finished the game with a 24-19 rebounding edge. The Dragons also won the turnover battle, forcing Judson into 18 with an active halfcourt trapping zone and only commiting 11 – sixth in the fourth quarter after the Rockets reinstated its press.

“We just thought we had to play zone because of their quickness,” Avey said of the switch from Southwest’s traditional man-to-man. “We wanted to take away the lane and force them to take (three-point shots). They hit a couple, but you have to live with that.”

After falling behind 7-1 in the first two minutes, the Dragons took the lead by scoring the next seven points.

Busby (6 rebounds, 3 assists) began the streak with three-point basket. Briana Longoria (8 points, 6 assists) drove and earned a pair of free throws, making each. Senior post Cheyenne Ortiz made an immediate impact off the bench, grabbing two rebounds.

Southwest’s post players combined for 18 points and 13 rebounds.

“We’ve been emphasizing post play,” Avey said. “That’s a big part of our team. We have a sort of a post-by-committee. Playing the post is such a tough job. So, we rotate them to keep them fresher. That makes the team better.”

The Dragons closed the first half with a 10-3 run. Senior Emilee Martinez scored off a rebound. Busby and Longoria sank consecutive three-point shots. Busby finished the half with a driving layup, which provided a 29-19 lead.

“We got running on our press break,” Busby explained. “Our posts can move, and they were open every time.”

Southwest outscored Judson 37-15 in the middle two quarters, but the Rockets cut the Dragons’ lead to 44-33 midway through the fourth quarter on a short jumper from Alicia Westbrook. Martinez scored on an assist from Aaliyah Holmes (8 points, 6 assists) with 1:52 left. She grabbed a defensive rebound on the ensuing possession to extinguish the threat.

“It was really good,” Busby said. “We played great defense and were actually talking to each other. Offensively, we weren’t standing around. We had the post open and the shooters open. Everything was open.”

Of the eight players Southwest employed Friday, seven returned from its 2014 area-round team. However, the Dragons are without sisters Jenyl (season-ending knee injury) and Karyssa Henry (hand injury), both of whom started a year ago.

Karyssa, a sophomore point guard, is expected to return before the Dragons begin district play. They gained Holmes, whose sister Shana is the school’s all-time leading scorer, in the offseason when her military family moved back to the area.

“Aaliyah has been unbelievable all year,” Avey said. “She can score, pass and play great defense. She has great court vision.”
