Basketball gets into tourney season and makes a ton of noise, has rough outing against Dawson

ON THE BYE WEEK FOR BASKETBALL OUR BOYS WENT TO HEB ISD TOURNEYS AND TURNED HEADS IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

7TH GRADE A TEAM DROPPED THE FIRST GAME BUT "REBOUNDED" AGAINST GRAPEVINE MS BY SCORING A JAW DROPPING 71 POINTS IN ROUTE TO A 71-16 WIN. THEY LOST THEIR NEXT GAME BUT PLAYED EXTREMELY HARD!

8TH GRADE A TEAM CAME OUT ON FIRE IN THEIR FIRST TWO GAMES WINNING BOTH WHICH NOTCHED THEIR SPOT IN THE TITLE GAME FOR THE TOURNEY ON SATURDAY MORNING. IN THE END, CAME UP A LITTLE SHORT, BUT TOOK HOME 2ND IN A TOURNEY WITH SOME BIG NAMES!


THE COLTS WERE ABLE TO PUT OUT 1 WIN AGAINST DAWSON LAST WEEK, BUT HAD THREE OF THE LOSSES WITHIN 10 POINTS OR LESS.


I AM EXTREMELY PROUD OF THE JOB THE GUYS IN OFF-SEASON ARE DOING. ITS NOT EASY TO COME IN EACH DAY AND PUT IN THE HIGH INTENSITY WORKOUT THAT THEY ARE DOING AND THEN NOT PUT ON A JERSEY TO COMPETE EACH WEEK. HOWEVER, THEY ARE REPRESENTING A BRAND, COLLEYVILLE MS, AND THEY COMPETE WITH EACH OTHER AND PUSH EACH OTHER TO BE THE BEST COLT EACH WEEK THROUGH OUR COMPETITIONS. KEEP REACHING HIGHER!

7TH GRADE C TEAM PLAYER OF THE GAME - VS DAWSON - GRANT ISBELL

Grant has improved each week as a player. He made his first start of the season and he showed that he is one of the leaders on team.

7TH GRADE B TEAM PLAYER OF THE GAME - VS DAWSON - CADE LEVERETT

Cade led all players with 14 points in a great effort. He set the pace early on both ends of the court and the team responded with an all around great performance. The second half wasn't as nice to the team but their GRIT came trough and held on for the victory.

7TH GRADE A TEAM PLAYER OF THE GAME - VS DAWSON - CADE FARAGHER

Cade shot 3 for 4 from the free throw line and tied for the team high 4 points from 2-point range. He limited turnovers, ate up huge and necessary minutes at the post, and showed huge growth boxing out down low. Cade's total 7 points were an individual season high. Look for big things to come the next two weeks of the regular season from this guy.

8TH GRADE C TEAM PLAYER OF THE GAME - VS DAWSON - SCOTT BRODER

In a hard fought matchup against Dawson, the team battled up and down the court in a high energy game. Scott worked hard on defense to take away one of their key players. Scott had a big 4th quarter putting up 9 points on the board with the help of his teammates, and fighting for 3 offensive rebounds.

8TH GRADE B TEAM PLAYER OF THE GAME - VS DAWSON - JACOB RODRIGUEZ

In a tough game against Dawson, Jacob fought hard defensively generating 2 steals and creating opportunities for turnovers. Jacob helped the team maintain control of the ball at a time that changed the momentum in the 4th quarter. Jacob is the type of player who is always positive and ready to step up for the teams needs.

8TH GRADE A TEAM PLAYER OF THE GAME - VS DAWSON - JOSH HEERMAN

In a back-and-forth game that came down to the wire, Josh stepped up big in the 2nd half! After getting into some foul trouble early on, Josh made the most of his opportunities/minutes and scored 6 points in game on 3/3 shooting. Josh was able to get his shots by battling tough down low on the block and out-working the Dawson opponents. Josh also was big down low rebounding as he had 4 rebounds to go along with his 6 points. Josh showed the kind of fight and toughness that we as coaches love to see out of our players!
