Brackenridge coach Tamiko Matthews challenged her team at halftime Jan. 2 to do something special.

“It’s not often you get a chance to beat an undefeated,” Matthews informed the Eagles. “If you want it more. We can do this, but you can’t let up for the next two quarters.’ ”

Brackenridge (11-13, 3-3) trailed 19-14 at the time, but rallied in the third quarter to claim a 36-34 victory over Burbank (13-10, 5-1). The Eagles outscored the Bulldogs 13-6 in the third quarter after scoring just one point in the second against Burbank’s veteran squad.

Matthews said a 47-44 win over Sam Houston (5-13, 2-4) Dec. 29 boosted her team’s confidence, which was a key element in defeating the determined Hurricanes.

“That’s been the biggest (issue) for my team,” Matthews said. “Last year it was injuries – and we had every kind of injury a team could have. This year, it’s confidence. Especially among the girls that were injured and had to sit out the season last year.

“Being able to overcome it and pull off those wins was great.”

Brackenridge climbed into fifth place with the win. Burbank dropped from a first-place tie with Highlands into second. Sam Houston is tied for sixth place with Edison (9-11, 2-4).

Eagles senior Skyler Reyna led Brackenridge in scoring in both games. Reyna scored 24 points against Burbank, making key free throws in the stretch, and had 19 against Sam Houston.

“I call Skyler the director,” Matthews said. “There are times when my team can look like a beautiful symphony on the court, but it has a lot to do with her. She pulls them all together.”

Matthews said Ciara Ramos also made a big shot to help the Eagles close out the win over Burbank. Antwanisha Riddle and Savannah Cassiano each scored 10 points for the Bulldogs.

“It was definitely a team effort to come together and finish it,” she said. “It was great to win. You can tell Burbank has matured. They have a lot of chemistry and work together as a unit. That’s something my girls are working on.”

Ashley Hernandez scored 13 for the Eagles in what Kerley called a wild game against Sam Houston. Samonica Davis led the Hurricanes with 19. Ashawntae Brown and Christine Goode supplied eight points apiece.

“It was a sloppy game all the way around, being the first game back from the break,” Matthews said. “We had three (consecutive) losses prior to the Sam Houston. I’m extremely proud of the girls, because Burbank was looking really good.”

Young Women’s Leadership Academy 36, Brooks Academy 28

The Cardinals (7-8) defeated Brooks Academy Jan.2 in a non-district game at the Lanier Athletic Center.

YWLA established a 16-11 halftime lead and scored 10 points in each of the last two quarters to defeat the Bengals. Senior Karease Williams led the Cardinals with 19 points.

Brooks Academy received double-digit scoring from both Jovanni Castillo (12 points) and Alyssa Quintanilla (10 points).

Highlands 63, Lanier 39

The Owls (12-10, 6-0) gained sole possession of first place in District 28-5A with a Dec. 29 win over third-place Lanier (13-6, 5-2) and a 63-39 win over Sam Houston Jan. 2. Both games were played at the Alamo Convocation Center.

Senior Aaliyah Prince led Highlands with 30 points. Junior Kiara Pesina added 21 points and Jazmine Jackson chipped in with 15.

Lanier lost despite 34 points from Sabrina Cortinas. Ruby Garza added 11 points.

Against Sam Houston, Highlands led 34-15 at halftime. Prince scored 19, Pesina 16 and Jackson 12. Davis led Sam Houston with 19 points and Josephina Sanchez contributed 13 points.

South San 80, Laredo United South 79

The Bobcats (12-9) edged Laredo United South (10-6) in a non-district game Jan. 2 at Laredo St. Augustine. It was the first game South San had played since Dec. 15.

Sophomore Ilana Sanford led the Bobcats with 21 points. Daniella Coronado (15 points), Rhiannon Gamez (12) and Tayla Trinidad (11) also were key contributors for South San.

Samantha Zamora scored 20 points for United South.

Holy Cross 49, TMI 21

BOYS BASKETBALL: Southside has high hopes under Dalbert’s direction

Having taken three teams to the state tournament in a 17-year coaching career, first-year Southside coach Shawn Dalbert has high high aspirations for the Cardinals.

Despite losing its first District 29-5A game by a wide-margin, Dalbert thinks Southside (6-11, 0-1) is close to making a breakthrough. The 75-35 loss to Laredo Martin (7-9, 1-0) Jan. 2 at Southside was not a game to judge the Cardinals by. They were missing seven players in the return from Christmas break.

“Our kids play hard, with a passion,” Dalbert said. “They play until the scoreboard clock hits 0:00. I think, in a couple more games, we are just going to turn the corner.”

Those who weren’t available to Dalbert against Martin included five of the team’s top seven scorers. Their less-experienced replacements couldn’t keep pace with the transition-oriented Tigers.

Robert Hernandez (11 points, 5 rebounds), one of the Cardinals’ usual starters, and Charlie Sanchez made free throws for a 2-0 Southside lead. Then Martin scored on three consecutive possessions to take a 6-2 lead with 6:35 left in the first quarter.

Kevin Zamora scored on a rebound, point guard Ricky Reyes (16 points) stole the inbounds pass and converted a layup and Zamora did the same for a scoring flurry that made Dalbert burn a timeout. By the end of the quarter, the Tigers led 28-8.

“It was our aggressiveness on defense,” Laredo Martin coach Hector Noyola Jr. said. “We were able to score off our defensive pressure. We forced a lot of turnovers.”

Alexander Regalado contributed eight points for the Cardinals, including a three-point basket that brought them within 44-13 at halftime.

Although Southside has yet to get on a roll, the Cardinals have been increasingly competitive, as evidenced by a 64-58 to one of the area’s hottest teams, Holy Cross, Dec. 4. They split a pair of games in the Starr Realty and Ranch Christmas Classic Dec. 28-29 at Uvalde.

The missing Jan. 2 included Alex Rangel, who is Southside’s scoring leader with a 15.9 points per game average. Hernandez is second with a 13.5 average. Rogelio Diaz (9.8) is out with an injury, but is expected to return within the next two weeks.

Dalbert has coached Class 3A Whitewright to two state tournament appearances and Roxton to the 1A Division 2 title in 2013. He and Southside assistant Willis Stewart have coached together for the last 12 years. Dalbert coached with Southside football coach/athletic coordinator Ricky Lock at Gonzales.

“We love our five seniors and we want to make sure they finish their careers in style, by making the playoffs,” Dalbert said. “There’s a state tournament here in San Antonio, and in the next couple of years, we want to be playing there.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: McCollum holds off Jefferson to notch first 28-5A win

When their game began Jan. 2, McCollum demonstrated its desire to pick up the thing that both itself and Jefferson lacked.

The Cowboys (2-16, 1-5) doubled the score on the Mustangs (4-17, 0-7) in the first quarter, snaring a 12-6 lead. McCollum built on that advantage until the fourth quarter, when it had to fend off a 17-point effort from Jefferson to win its first District 28-5A game, 46-39.

“They stepped up,” Jefferson coach Greg McWilliams said of McCollum. “They knew it was a big game for them and they responded well. They played with a lot of energy.”

McCollum established a 43-26 lead with 5:56 remaining when sophomore Elany Guerra nailed a three-point basket from the left wing off an assist from her sister, Emalye Guerra.

“It was very good,” first-year Cowboys coach Rudy Fernandez said of the win. “I’m very happy for the girls. They showed a lot of fight, and they kept fighting to the end. We tend to play in spurts.

“I try to play a lot of girls. They push each other and they played with a lot of energy today.”

Jefferson junior Victoria Morin (11 points) made a short jumper and Kasey Torres (10 points) sank a pair of free throws to close within 43-30. Elany Guerra (20 points) answered with another three-pointer, this time from the top of the key, to give the Cowboys the cushion they needed.

“Elany did a good job today,” Fernandez said. “She was making some big threes. She also played well off the ball on defense.”

The Mustangs’ Joslyn Avila (10 points) scored four consecutive points entering the game’s final minute. She nailed each free throw resulting from back-to-back steals in a trapping defense, helping Jefferson to reduce its deficit to 46-37.

“She is very deceptive,” McWilliams said. “Joslyn has quick hands.”

Jefferson senior Breanna Sifuentes closed the scoring with a long jumper. Ashley Campos contributed eight points for McCollum.

“Jefferson has a lot of size, compared to us,” Fernandez said. “We didn’t want them getting the offensive rebound and passing out. We tried to get the tempo going. They like to set up in a zone and try to create a lot of turnovers.”

Typical of the area’s Jan. 2 games, neither team was at full strength.

Jefferson was missing five players, including senior leader Angela Hardcastle. McCollum was without one starter and a key reserve.

“I thought we had a lot of kids step up and do good things today,” McWilliams said. “We had several key contributors. Joslyn was not feeling real good, but she played the whole 32 minutes. At one point in the fourth quarter, we were down 17. Even though things weren’t going our way, we kept pushing forward and that’s something the girls can be proud of.”

Area basketball fans may remember McWilliams from his very successful stint at Floresville, from 2000 to 2011. Jefferson hired him before the season after three years at San Angelo Central.

Although the Mustangs still are seeking their first district win, they have shown signs of growth throughout a season that began with few experienced players.

“We’re going to keep focusing and pushing forward,” he said. “I really like what we’re doing. These kids haven’t had a lot of wins, but we’re going to keep working until we get the breaks we need to turn things around.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: Brackenridge connection guides Antonian to win over Hornets

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: East Central.

Two coaches known for turning Brackenridge into a Class 4A basketball power made a triumphant return to the area Dec. 22.

Former Eagles girls basketball coach Patrick Harvey and ex-Brack boys coach Ed Hooi – now Harvey’s assistant – brought their Antonian team to the Stan Bonewitz Center at East Central Dec. 22. The Apaches (20-3), No. 10 in the Express-News area rankings, led the last 27 minutes on the way to a 61-44 win over the host Hornets (9-9).

“They play the way I want us to play,” East Central coach Ian Ward said. “They play as a team, like nobody else in San Antonio.”

Ward, a former St Mary’s University men’s basketball player and assistant coach, is in his first year at East Central. He coached at Laredo United the last four years.

“I want my kids to be college-ready,” he said. “If we run it, it has been tried and tested. It’s a free-flowing offense. We can only hope to be as fluid (as Antonian).”

Harvey is in his first year at Antonian after coaching three years at CASA following his stint at Brackenridge. He said he simply asked Hooi, who last coached the Eagles five years ago, if he wanted to coach again.

Antonian had lost three of its previous five games before the non-district contest.

“I think we’re out of our little funk,” Harvey said. “We hadn’t been playing three or four quarters very well, but they played a full game tonight.”

East Central led briefly and the score was tied three times in the first five minutes. A three-point basket from Brianna Ford tied it 4-4. Junior point guard Brittany Rodgers (14 points, 5 assists) tied it again with a three-point play and gave the Hornets an 11-9 with 3:17 left in the first quarter.

Antonian scored the next 16 points until East Central 6-foot-2 sophomore Nalyssa Smith (16 points, 11 rebounds) scored on an assist from Rodgers with 6:31 until halftime.

“Brittany kept fighting to the very end,” Ward said. “She played all 32 minutes and she’s done that numerous times. She has definitely bought into what we’re doing.”

The Hornets closed within 34-22 at halftime, but a three-pointer from Antonian junior Bailey Boyle (20 points) began a 9-2 run. Boyle made consecutive three-pointers that put the game out of East Central’s reach after a pair of free throws from Smith made it 50-37 with 3:45 remaining.

“When Bailey makes one (3-pointer),” Harvey said, “she usually makes two or three.”

Rodgers and Smith each scored six points for the Hornets in the fourth quarter. The Apaches received 17 points from Sandy Ramirez and 11 from Brittany Parker.

The teams were scheduled to meet again Dec. 29 in the Boerne ISD Tournament.

“I’m glad we get a chance to play them again,” Ward said. “We can use that as a measuring stick to see how much progress we’ve made.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: Southside pulls away from Nixon to win 29-5A opener

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Southside.

As a senior leader, Mayra Sendejo knows what to do when Southside needs an infusion of energy.

“If anything, I want to take it (to the basket),” Sendejo said. “If I don’t have a shot, I’ll kick it out. I know they’re good shooters.”

Sendejo made a concerted effort to grab defensive rebounds during the second half Dec. 18 at Southside and dribble the length of the court to spur activity in her fellow Cardinals. When Sendejo wasn’t able to score or get to the foul line, she was able to find teammates Marcy Lopez and Allie Herrera open for three-point shots. Those are the shooters she referred to.

Her efforts helped Southside (11-7, 1-0) rally with a 9-2 spurt after Laredo Nixon (11-11, 0-1) pulled within five points in the District 29-5A opener for both teams. The Cardinals won 55-44.

“They hit some big shots,” Laredo Nixon coach LeaAnn Mendoza said. “We lost composure.”

Sendejo led the Cardinals with 13 points, scoring seven in the second half. Herrera scored 11 points. Lopez and sophomore Klarissa Quintana each finished with 10.

“Mayra is our heartbeat,” Southside coach Jessica Macias-Cardenas said. “In the third quarter, every time we were kind of crumbling, she was communicating and getting us to focus. She does anything and everything for us.”

Southside hadn’t played since Dec. 8 when it absorbed a 65-21 loss to Taft, which is No. 4 in the Express-News area rankings.

The Cardinals led 22-17 at halftime behind nine points from Quintana. They expanded the lead to 10 little more than three minutes into the second half when post Cassandra Aguilar corralled an offensive rebound and passed to Herrera for a three-pointer.

“Cassandra came up with about eight blocks,” Macias-Cardenas said. “She was our defensive player of the year last year. Without her on the court, we’re a different team.”

The Mustangs, who finished third in 29-5A last year, received five quick points from Jenny Pena (18 points) to spark an 11-4 run. The tipping point for Southside was a four-point possession with 6:11 remaining.

Sendejo made a free throw for a 40-34 lead. She missed the second foul shot, but Southside’s Adrianna Escamilla was in place for the rebound and passed to Lopez. The sophomore was fouled on a three-point attempt and made each free throw. Quintana followed with a three-point basket.

Lopez has replaced fellow sophomore Desirae Arocha. Arocha was Southside’s leading scorer last year, when the Cardinals were the 29-5A runner-up, but is lost for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

“She’s stepped up a lot, coming from the JV,” Sendejo said. “She takes some of the pressure off without Desi.”

With 31.2 seconds left, Lopez sealed the win with two more free throws.

“Nixon’s always tough,” Sendejo said. “It’s a huge start. We can get on top of the district, so that’s always good.”
