MONDAY, NOV 15th!
Although many of the area's private schools have been playing for the past two weeks, Monday, November 15th was the date which UIL schools were permitted to play their first regular season games. On the campus of St Thomas High School, there were 3 private schools going against 3 public schools. In 2009, the publics entered this event heavily favored, but after the smoke cleared it was the privates who had emerged with the 2-1 bragging rights. This year, it was once again the privates who prevailed. Check out the reviews and previews below...
#12 ROSENBERG TERRY (1-0) 59 vs #19 SECOND BAPTIST (4-2) 46
Review - Although he still had his football legs under him, Derrick Griffin still managed to score a game high 16pts as Terry cruised to a 59-46 win. From the opening tip, Second Baptist didn't appear to have the level of fight needed to take control of this game. Nweke chipped in 7pts, but the true X-factor ended up being Jevaughn Threatt 5'11 g 2012 (13pts) in the win.
Prediction: Terry by 2
Preview - Second Baptist will be without leading scorer LJ Rose (foot injury), but Charles Allen 6'3 g 2011 has been on a tear - over 20pts in four games. Both teams will benefit from the addition of football players with starting experience. Second Baptist welcomes Alex Cooper 6'5 pf 2011, and he's good for 10rebs. Heralded young center Khadeem Lattin 6'9 c 2014 is expected to make his high school debut after a slight injury caused him to missed the team's first five games. Terry gets leadership and athleticism with Eric Wright 5'9 pg 2013 and Derrick Griffin 6'6 f 2013. It's not easy coming directly off the football field and being able to go right into hoop rhythm. In the case of Cooper, it's slightly different because the primary thing Second Baptist needs from him is rebounds and occassionally a put back or two per half. Terry need plenty of points and plays made by Griffin and Wright and that could become a huge question mark.
X Factors: Julien Person 6'7 f 2011 has been relatively quiet this season, and there's no better stage to make some noise than what's in front of him tonight. Terry's Odera Nweke 6'5 f 2011 is strong, athletic, and he can finish near the rim. Keep a close eye on these two guys because one of them will have a true reason to pump his chest when it counts most.
#17 ST THOMAS (7-1) 47 vs SAM HOUSTON (0-1) 36
REVIEW - Christian Sanders (22pts) continued to dominate under the bright lights as St Thomas prevailed in this very low scoring affair. After the teams went into the break with only a point separating them (21-20), Sanders and Chase Brogna (11pts) hit a couple baskets apiece to lead a 3rd quarter surge which put St Thomas ahead 36-27 heading into the final frame. As previewed, Adam Drexler put together an impressive 8pts/ 7rebs/ 3blk performance to make a difference while defending Texas State recruit Dante Bachus most of the second half. Speaking of Bachus (9pts) , he was held without a field goal the entire second half, and frontcourt mate Denzell Booker (3pts) did not convert a single basket the entire game.
Rcs Prediction: St Thomas by 14
PREVIEW - St Thomas is fresh off a championship finish in their own tournament this past weekend. The main key to their success has been the clutch play of floor general Christian Sanders 6'3 pg 2012. He's stepped up huge when needed most. His backcourt mates, Chase Brogna 6'0 sg 2012 and Ian Hurley 5'11 cg 2011 have established themselves as reliable factors from behind the arc. On the inside Jeremy King 6'8 f 2012 has been active, and will definitely need to bring it tonight while going against a legit D1 recruit Dante Bachus 6'7 pf 2011 (signed with Texas State). Sam Houston also has a pair of beefy mates to compliment Bachus in the frontcourt. Denzell Booker 6'4 f 2011 and Curry Jones 6'5 pf 2011 could be the difference makers in this game which will obviously come down to St Thomas's perimeter success versus Sam Houston's dominance near the rim.
X Factors: Adam Drexler 6'4 w 2012 has been held without a single point in two of his past three games. Fortunately, the team has produced wins, but the hall of fame offspring has to put himself in position to get easy scoring opportunities. Sam Houston will have to get a huge game from Gilbert Good Jr 6'0 pg 2011, who will have his work cut out for him defending the St Thomas guards.
#10 WESTBURY CHR (3-0) 72 vs #3 JESSE JONES (0-1) 63 - 2OT
REVIEW - This game lived up to every ounce of the hype! Westbury Christian capitalized on several miscues by Jones, including losing key starter Roderick Harris with a leg injury in the 3rd quarter, and a missed break a way potentially game winning lay up with less than :10 left in regulation. Down the stretch it was the performances of Anthony Collins and back court mate, Tyler Guidry (15pts) that proved to be key factors. For the Falcons, Roderick Harris (9pts) went down in the 3rd quarter with a knee injury and twin brother Broderick Harris scored 12 of his 18pts during the final 16 minutes. The highly anticipated point guard duel between Collins and Joe Miles (10pts) was close but Collins get the easy nod after getting the "W" along with 15p/ 12a. Guard Cody Glenn did not suit up as he recovered from a mild leg injury suffered this past weekend in Dallas. He'll be a game time decision for Tuesday's game @ Beaumont Westbrook. Only one person scored off the bench for Jones HS - Tim Brown 7pts.
Rcs Prediction: Jones by 3
Preview - Westbury Christian is the defending state champs and they proved their potency after driving up to Dallas and knocking off national power Prestonwood Christian this past weekend. Anthony Collins 6'1 pg 2011 has been the team's heart and soul. He's a defensive specialist who doesn't score a lot, and that's because he'd much rather create opportunities for teammates to do so. Cody Glenn 6'3 sg 2011 and Tyler Guidry 6'0 cg 2011 keep defenses very honest with their accuracy on the perimeter, and ability to slash. Jones returns 9 players to the fold, including the 1-2 punch of Joe Miles 5'9 pg 2011 and DeMarcus Johnson 6'5 wf 2011. Both have been starters since 9th grade. Miles is very crafty with a jitterbug style that keeps defenders way off balance. It should be interesting to see this duel against Collins. Johnson can create problems if his mid range jumper is on line. Expect Westbury Christian's Delvin Dickerson 6'4 f 2012 (transferred from Alief Taylor HS) to make a splash tonight with his athleticism and tenacity near the rim.
X Factors: Roderick and Broderick Harris 6'5 f 2012 are rugged and their performances tonight will indeed make a difference. For Westbury Christian, the ability of Hasani Sunbry 6'8 c 2011 to regulate on defense is essential to them winning this game.
