New program is making success old hat
Houston Chronicle    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The sign of potential for the Clear Springs girls basketball program first materialized two years ago. In 2009, the Chargers were paired up against Fort Bend Bush—a dangerous team featuring future Kansas forward Carolyn Davis—in the first round of the Class 5A Region III playoffs. Expectations weren't high for the Chargers, who were in only their second season of existence and first in varsity. Yet despite the inexperience, the team managed to upend the Broncos 61-52 to advance to the area round. And although Clear Springs quickly lost to North Shore, Mileka Loydrake, then a sophomore, realized the first-round victory signified the beginning of something promising. More

Former Skyline coach doing just fine in Nocona
WFAA-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nocona is a hundred miles away from Dallas, but it might as well be a thousand. It's a small town, with just over 3,000 people, where there is only one high school, and no one is a stranger. One of the town's claims to fame is the Nokona Glove company, which makes baseball gloves. JD Mayo is helping the town become known for its basketball, too. He's been coaching a long time, but the little details are still very important to him. More

Kocher's talent adding up for St. Michael's
Austin American-Statesman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Jake Kocher is aware that you might not know who he is. He's accepted that. But with every shot the St. Michael's senior takes this season—he's taken 751 so far—and with every point he scores—he's put 1,011 on the scoreboard—he is making a statement. And as he sends local basketball fans a message, Kocher is also chasing a championship that eluded him two years ago. More

Wagner rides defense back to state tourney
San Antonio Express-News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Wagner Thunderbirds admitted they lacked intensity in their regional semifinal win over Harlingen South. For the Region IV-5A final, the Thunderbirds took a simple strategy to refocus: Treat the Corpus Christi King Mustangs like the Jay Mustangs. The approach worked perfectly. Wagner had the same fire it showed last week against Jay and the defense to match, shutting down King 45-33 at the UTSA Convocation Center and booking the school's second trip to the Class 5A state tournament in four years. The tournament begins Friday at the Erwin Center in Austin. More

Beaumont Enterprise    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
A chuckle almost always follows when Kourtney Williams talks, like after he compared his basketball abilities to NBA player Carmelo Anthony. Williams was joking, of course. Lately, however, his talent had become obvious. The first half of the season Williams spent a lot of time on Ozen's bench. Now, the 6-foot-1 sophomore guard is the Panthers' top rebounder and a double-figure scorer. More

'Sandwich' defense helps LBJ girls reach state tournament
Austin American-Statesman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
LBJ's first ticket to the UIL state girls basketball tournament was delivered with a "defensive sandwich." Defense was the order of the day, and coach Renee Brown is going to the tournament for the first time in her 18 years with the Jaguars. LBJ limited Vista Ridge to fewer than 10 points in three of the four quarters to claim a 43-29 victory in the Class 4A, Region IV championship game this past Saturday at Littleton Gym. More
