GIRLS BASKETBALL: Holy Cross perseveres for first tourney title

Knights come through in 4th quarter at Pearsall



In Holy Cross’ first eight seasons of girls basketball, the Knights never had won a tournament championship.

“We’ve had some pretty good teams, but we’d never won a tournament,” Holy Cross coach Jesse Arguello said. “We had, maybe, gotten to the finals a couple of times.”

Holy Cross (8-6) sealed the deal Dec. 6 at the Pearsall Tournament. The Knights defeated Medina 36-29 in the championship game.

It was their second come back victory in three tournament games. Holy Cross also beat Cornerstone Christian 52-46 in its TAPPS 4-4A district opener Dec. 2.

“There were no big 6A schools, but we had to play well to beat some of those teams,” Arguello said. “It was a good week. We got four wins out of it. I’m very happy with that.

“It was a matter of persevering through some rough moments.”

Holy Cross trailed by 10 points in a pool-play game against Pearsall, so decided to press the Mavericks. The deficit soon was wiped out and the Knights won 53-42 in overtime Dec. 4 to advance to the title game.

“We hadn’t been playing well, so we changed up our defense,” Arguello said. “From that moment through overtime, it was a 21-point swing. They didn’t handle that change well and our girls got very aggressive on defense. They made some bad passes, and we got some energy from that.”

Brianna Salinas scored 18 points, Hayley Andrade added 17 and Victoria Gonzalez 14 against Pearsall.

The Knights also crushed Dilley 45-15 in another pool-play game. In the championship game, Holy Cross overcame a height advantage to win the close game.

“It was two fairly evenly matched teams,” Arguello said. “Our defense was strong, but we struggled offensively until the fourth quarter. Then we outscored them 14.6.

”It was another game where we kept plugging until things turned or way.”

Arguello said that is the type of approach his team will need to take this year.

“These girls have struggled, but they don’t quit,” he said. “We play pretty good defense, that’s our strength. If we play good defense, we can be in every game. If we manage some offense, then we have a chance to win.

“We’re able to win close games this year. We didn’t do that last year.”

Holy Cross won another during the week against Cornerstone Christian in the Knights’ gym. Andrade (16 points), Salinas (11), Gonzalez (10) and Bryanna Solis (9 points) were the top scorers as Holy Cross scored all 10 of its fourth-quarter points at the free-throw stripe.

“Unfortunately, we put ourselves in that position,” Arguello said. “I told the girls every game has its own personality, so expect it to be different when we play Cornerstone again. We need to play consistent defense all four quarters.”

The Knights get back into district play this week with a game at San Antonio Christian Tuesday and a trip to Corpus Christi Incarnate Word Saturday.

GIRLS BASKETBALL: East Central weathering storms to gain experience

Young, talented Hornets tested by schedule



After being hit by a blizzard, the crucial thing to remember is that digging your way out is going to take some time. Trying to do too much too soon can have deadly consequences.

San Marcos (then 10-4) hit East Central with a 23-1 run that spanned the first two quarters Dec. 2 in the Stan Bonewitz Center. The host Hornets (6-5) never quite got their heads above the snowline, but closed to within 52-38 when the non-district game ended.

The Rattlers led 27-15 at halftime.

“We talked about the first three minutes of the second half,” second-year East Central coach Ginger Hartman said. “We wanted to win those three minutes. Then we wanted to take it possession by possession. I told them I wanted them to play hard, no matter what the score was.”

East Central staked out a 12-4 lead with 2:21 remaining in the first quarter.

Hornets sophomore forward Brittany Rodgers (21 points) scored the game’s first three points. Six-foot-2 freshman Nalyssa Smith scored inside and assisted classmate Makayla Hamilton on a 15-foot jumper that provided a 7-2 advantage.

Smith (10 points, 11 rebounds) made a pair of free throws and Rodgers nailed a three-point basket to establish the eight-point lead. The Hornets couldn’t squelch the impending Rattlers run until the sophomore sank two free throws in the closing seconds of the half.

“We were doing some great things,” Hartman said. “We just aren’t able to really finish (shots). Once we adjusted, we started playing better and picked it up a bit.”

San Marcos tied the score 12-12 with 36.5 seconds remaining in the first quarter on a fast-break basket from Bailey Hill (16 points). East Central’s shooting cooled and the Ratllers simultaneously revved up their transition game.

A steal and layup from San Marcos point guard Shannon Mathis (14 points, 3 steals) increased the Rattlers’ lead to 14 points just 10.5 seconds before halftime.

“They definitely did a good job of handling the ball,” Hartman said. “We know what we need to work on from here, but the girls did a good job.”

San Marcos led 52-23 with 6:38 left in the fourth quarter, following a basket from Hill. The Hornets scored the next 15 points, making six free throws in the spurt. Rodgers accounted for seven points.

Her three-pointer closed the gap to 52-31 with 1:44 left. Smith drew a three-point play with little more than a minute on the clock, but missed the free throw. However, freshman Kayla Dotson was in position and scored on the rebound.

Smith also put back a rebound, with 12.8 seconds to close the scoring. She’s one of four freshman getting significant playing time. East Central is playing without injured two-year starter Janik Alexander-Smith.

“I’m very pleased with them,” Hartman said. “They’re working hard and they don’t give up. They keep coming after you the whole game.

“I like the (internal) competition. I have people on the bench who I can bring in at any time and give the starters a breather.”

BOYS BASKETBALL: Highlands, South San streak to tourney success

Harlandale reaches consolation championship

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Harlandale, Highlands, McCollum, South San, Southwest.


South San hadn’t confronted any adversity before its tournament began. Highlands, on the other hand, hadn’t seen much else in the early stages of this young season.

The 75th annual South San ISD Tournament presented each with the opportunity to venture into the crucible and leave seemingly as stronger teams than they had been.

That, obviously, was the case for Highlands (4-8), which won its first three games in Texas’ oldest continuous tournament and finished fourth among 24 teams. South San (7-1), undefeated through four games, endured its first loss but finished with another winning streak.

Highlands began the tournament Dec. 4 with an 87-57 rout of Eagle Pass. The Owls continued the surge to defeat 2013-14 regional semifinalist Harlingen South 77-67 and defending District 29-4A champion Floresville 72-70.

“This has been a good tournament for us,” Highlands coach Rufus Lott said. “It’s been a great experience. There are a lot of good teams here and a lot of different styles of play.”

South San won its last three games, including a buzzer-beating 44-41 overtime win over Texas Military Institute in the fifth-place game. The Bobcats’ only loss came against Floresville 63-55 Dec. 5 in their tournament opener.

Against TMI, neither team had scored for more than eight minutes when Bobcats wing Curtis Allen caught a pass from senior point guard Olando Lopez (16 points) in the left corner. Allen, fading away slightly, sank the three-point shot with 2.5 seconds left in overtime.

“What better way to win a game than in the last second?,” South San coach Ray Carroll said. “I’m so happy for our guys. They’ve gotten off to a really good start this year.”

Harlandale also fared well in the three-day tournament, finishing as the runner-up in the consolation bracket.

The Indians lost 63-43 to Antonian Dec. 6 in the consolation championship, but were within two at halftime. Ryan Blanquiz led the Indians with 14 points and senior leader Ram Torres scored nine. Their only other loss was 67-57 to MacArthur Dec. 4 in their first tourney game.

“We’ve had a great start to the season,” Harlandale coach Chris Adamek said. “With only Jesus (Maltos) and Ram back, all the younger players have done a very good job of stepping up their play. We’ve been facing some good competition.”

The area’s other tournament entries, Southwest (5-3) and McCollum (6-5), each won their final consolation-bracket games.

Highlands had tackled a murderous schedule prior to the tournament. Complicating matters further, the Owls top two 2013-14 scorers have been out of the picture. DeMarcus Hartfield transferred to TMI and JerMichael Shirley broke his leg this fall.

The Owls couldn’t hit shots early in their 72-52 loss to New Braunfels in the third-place game. They finished strong, though, outscoring the Unicorns 20-10 in the final quarter. Lamar Sterling scored 12 of his 21 points in the quarter. Christopher Hartfield scored 11.

“We had a few kids missing to take the SAT and ACT (tests),” Lott said. “That hurts a little bit when you’re trying to play an uptempo, pressure game.

“I’m pleased with how far we’ve come so far. We’ve played some of the better teams in the city. We have a lot of inexperience and that’s hurt us finishing games.”

After the loss to Floresville, South San regrouped to smash Corpus Christi Flour Bluff 61-44 Dec. 5 and Warren 64-37 behind 28 from Allen. Lopez and Allen combined for 43 points against Flour Bluff.

Arthur Rangel scored 13 points against TMI.

“We struggled with Floresville,” Carroll said. “After that, I had a conversation with the players. I told them, ‘People will judge you by how you respond to this. I asked them to bounce back, and they won three games and (fifth place).”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: Prince gives Highlands lift against potent Antonian

Ranked Apaches squeeze out win





Sometimes teams draw a spark from one player doing something differently.

Highlands junior Aaliyah Prince perked up her Owls teammates Tuesday by suddenly blocking shots, some of which officials didn’t give her credit for. Prince’s efforts disrupted Antonian’s disciplined offense and helped the Owls (8-6) assemble an 11-3 run after the Apaches threatened to put their lead out of reach early in the second quarter.

Antonian (7-2), No. 10 in the Express-News area rankings, had to hang on for a 55-54 win at Highlands’ gym.

“The key for her was getting blocks on defense,” Highlands coach Adrianna Wiatrek said. “We made a switch to a zone at the end of the second quarter. Our big girls (Susana Stephens, Jordan Brown and Monique Jackson) came in and did their job. They challenged (Antonian) in the paint. Aaliyah’s big when she forces turnovers.

“I give a lot of credit to the girls in the paint. They allowed Aaliyah and Jaz(mine Jackson) to fly around.”

Antonian led 33-24 and built a 12-point lead midway through the third quarter. Highlands was forcing turnovers with its halfcourt trap defense, but couldn’t capitalize on them.

“We’ve been behind at halftime,” Highlands senior forward Emily Pearce said. “We’ve been down by 10 points but we’ve been able to rally and come back. We did that in the (Jaguar Classic) tournament last weekend against Austin High.”

Jazmine Jackson (16 points) and Kiara Pesina combined to make three of four free throws and bring the Owls within 10 points with 1:08 left in the quarter. Andrea Valerio, a senior transfer from Colorado, and Stephens provided baskets in the final minute.

A driving layup off an assist from Pearce and a rebound basket from Jackson finished the run with Highlands trailing 41-37 about 1 ½ minutes into the last quarter.

“Free throws are our enemy,” Wiatrek said. “We missed 16 tonight and we missed 20 in our first game against Jay. In the first quarter tonight, we couldn’t knock down even the easy baskets.”

Jackson provided back-to-back baskets again with 1:48 to play, bringing Highlands within 51-49. Following a free throw from Antonian’s Brittany Parker (14 points), the Owls scored four points in a possession.

The junior made a post-up basket and drew a foul. Jackson missed the foul shot, but Prince (14 points) scored off the rebound. Highlands led 53-51.

“Everything has been clicking together,” Pearce said. “Most of us have been playing together since last year. Everybody is coming together. I think this is our year. Defensively, offensively and in terms of chemistry, everything has gotten a lot better.”

Alina Hilliard (8 points) hit a jumper from the right side to tie it and Parker converted a one-and-one to restore a 55-53 edge for the Apaches. Pesina sank a free throw with 39.5 seconds, but Jackson was unable to score on a layup with 8.9 seconds.

Nonetheless, it was a solid follow-up to Highlands’ runner-up finish at the Jaguar Classic Nov. 22.

“We had a great tournament, until the last game,” Wiatrek said. “We got to the last game, and we just shut down. But, to get there, we beat Floresville, which is a pretty legitimate team. We were down against Austin High, and we had to fight back.

“We hadn’t done that before (this year).”

The Owls clearly learned the formula from that game and applied it at the right time against Antonian.

Highlands will open its District 28-5A season Tuesday with a 6:30 p.m. game against Jefferson (1-9) at Alamo Convocation Center.

“We’re getting there,” Wiatrek said. “We’re still not where we need to be, but we’re going in the right direction. We have a lot of weapons to hurt you on offense.”

BOYS BASKETBALL: Clemens extends rough greeting to former coach McConaghy

Buffaloes run to win over Central Catholic

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Central Catholic.



Central Catholic coach Bruce McConaghy didn’t receive the kind of welcome back to Clemens High School he would probably have hoped for, but that had nothing to do with hospitality or holiday spirit.

The host Buffaloes (4-0), ranked No. 2 in the Express-News area poll, overwhelmed the inexperienced Buttons (4-6) Nov. 29 in Schertz. Clemens broke open a tight game early with 16 unanswered points and cruised to an 87-52 victory.

“I’ve been back here before,” said McConaghy, who coached Clemens from 2000 to 2005. “It’s not that big of a deal. But it was a good time. There are a lot of good people here.”

Central Catholic used eight players in the contest, only one of whom saw significant playing time last season as the Buttons posted a 25-8 record. Guards Joseph and Jaime Nava are out with injuries.

In fact, the lone returning starter, 6-foot-10 Tony Lewis, was not fully healthy for the non-district game. The senior was coping with an injury to his left leg.

“He’s a good player,” third-year Clemens coach Clifton Ellis said. “We wanted to take him off the spots where he was used to catching the ball. We knew he was ailing a little bit. We felt we needed to make him get up and down the court a little bit, so we could minimize his size a little. We did a good job of that.”

Lewis finished with a team-high 12 points for Central Catholic. Senior guard Tanner Nagel (11 points) was the only other Buttons player in double figures.

Clemens had five double-digit scorers, led by backup post Devante Ford with 15. Three were substitutes.

“They’re doing well,” McConaghy said. “They have a good, strong team. Coach Ellis is a great coach and he’s doing a good job with them.”

The Buffaloes return their top five scorers from last year’s Class 4A state semifinalists.

They staked out a 7-2 lead, but the Buttons battled back to tie it 7-7 on a three-pointer from Nagel. A basket from Lewis in the paint and a driving layup from Julian Rodriguez (8 points) tied it once more at 11-11. Lewis supplied another tying hoop with 1:16 remaining in the first quarter.

“Central Catholic gave us a good look,” Ellis said. “They slowed us down. They forced us to play (a different style). We like to get the ball upcourt as fast as we can.”

Clemens scored the next 16 points, including a closely guarded three-pointer from Mitchell McMullen at the first-quarter buzzer. By halftime, the Buffaloes led 39-19.

“That was big because that’s when we were (struggling),” Ellis said of McMullen’s basket. “The things we were trying to do weren’t really working, but you’ve got to keep playing, and eventually they will.”

Central Catholic scored the first five points in the second half on a driving basket from Rodriguez and a three-pointer by Charlie Lopez. Two free throws from Lewis pout the Buttons within 42-26 with 6:33 left in the third quarter.

Another buzzer-beating, three-pointer – this time from Darrell Harris – increased Clemens’ lead to 71-38 when the quarter ended.

“They’re really coming along,” Ellis said. “The younger guys have some good guys to learn from and the older guys are approaching things the right way. We’ve got some good depth.”

Central Catholic scored the game’s last eight points. Aguilar made a driving layup, Robert Elizondo sank a three-pointer, Nagel notched a layup and Lopez made two free throws.

McConaghy said his main emphasis going forward was for the team to play as a unit.

“We’ve been playing pretty well,” McConaghy said. “We didn’t do some things today. After that first quarter, it was downhill.”

The Buttons defeated La Vernia (1-2) 63-48 Nov. 25 as Rodriguez scored 16 points. Lopez contributed 11 points. Aguilar and Nagel scored nine points apiece. Lewis did not play.
