This game was over at the tip as Jordan jumped out to a 24-7 lead after the first period and cruised to a dominating first win of the season by the score of 85-40. The backcourt of Elijah Black ('25) and Jaden Holt ('25) was just too much for Aldine as they were just overwhelmed with the defensive pressure by Jordan as they collected 13 steals in the win. Black led the way with 20p and 7s followed by Holt who added 19p and 6a. Lorenzo Robinson ('25) led Aldine with 14p.

Before the game word came out that Westfield big man Jeremiah Cooper (’25) was out due to NPNP and that put a damper on the match up. St Francis came out in attack mode going up by 15p behind the strong play of John Laboy II (’25). At the end of the 1st, St Francis Episcopal held a 25-12 lead. That lead would balloon to 32 in the 3rd before Westfield made it closer and St Francis Episcopal cruise to a 79-61 win to open the season. Cory Syon II ('25) caught fire and scored 26p including going 7/7 from 3. Eren Ozcelik ('25) added 17p followed by Laboy II was very good finishing with 15p 6r and 5a. Westfield was led by DeBrion Broomfield ('24), Davion McDaniel ('24) and Kam Lewis ('25) who all scored 12p in the loss.

In the marquee match up between two teams that could find themselves in San Antonio in March, it was Duncanville who used a huge 3rd period to hold off Seven Lakes by a score of 79-73. After going into the half down 32-20, Duncanville took control outscoring Seven Lakes 24-25 in the period behind the shooting of Kayden "Bugg" Edwards ('26) and Joseph Brooks ('25). They both shot the cover off the ball and made life miserable for Seven Lakes, who lost talented guard Nasir Price ('26) to a finger injury in the 3rd period and was limited to 14 min. LA Tech signee AJ Bates ('24) had a very good game for Seven Lakes in front of his future assistant coaches. Edwards led Duncanville with 22p followed by a monster game by BJ Davis-Ray ('25) who added 18p and 9r. Brooks added 15p and 6r in the win. Bates led all scorers with 29p and 7r followed by Isaiah Santos ('27) who had a coming out party finishing with 16p and 8r. Sean Williams ('26) added 11p and 5r.

In a game that looked like it would get out of hand early, Shadow Creek had to make plays down the stretch to start the season off with a win and they did that as Mike Collins ('25) made the plays to get the win 57-50. Shadow Creek jumped out to a 19-11 lead after the 1st period and looked to be in cruise control. Pebblebrook would not go away and before you knew it, we had a nip and tuck game down the stretch. That's when up 3, Collins stepped to the line and calmly sank two free throws and on the ensuing inbounds stole the ball and got a breakaway dunk for the final margin. Collins led all scorers with 19p followed by Kaden Tate ('24) who finished with 17p and 9r. Pebblebrook was led by Caleb Thomas ('25) who finished with 17p followed by Arthur Williams ('24) and Zyree Brown ('26) who both finished with 10p each. Talented junior Bryce Jackson ('25) was expected to return from a year long absence but he unfortunately rolled his ankle and is in a boot. You can't help but feel bad for the kid as he was so looking forward for his return. Let's pray for a speedy recovery.
