Nimitz Captures District Win, Coppell Claims Victory
Irving Nimitz 51 Irving High 48
After jumping out to an early lead and leading by 12 in the third quarter, Nimitz saw the Tigers make a charge behind the 3 point shooting of NELSON VILLATORO. Villatoro hit a 3 and was fouled, made the free throw to complete the 4 point play and knot the score at 43 with 3:08 left in the game. With the score tied at 48, Nimitz's JARED JENKINS drove the lane and hit a runner with 11 seconds on the clock to close out the Viking win.
Nimitz's Jenkins (14 points), RANDALL WRIGHT (10 points) and CAMERON LOVE (10 points) were double figure scorers while Villatoro (21 points -- 7 @ 3's) and >b?MICHAEL COLEY (14 points) paced the Tigers.
JARED JENKINS 5-10 2016 1 Man
Can hit the 3, pull up for jumper or finish at the rim. He is a nice ball handler and passer, knows how to draw the foul going to the hole and does a nice job running the offense.
DELONTE SCOTT 6-5 2015 3/4 Man
Long and athletic, can leap, likes to go to the rim, mostly a paint scorer, will get on the offensive glass and should continue to develop his game as he improves fundamentally.
NELSON VILLATORO 5-5 2014 1 Man
Can get hot and fill it up from behind the arc. A high energy player, quick and fast, pushes the ball in transition and makes things happen. Size becomes a factor when he gets deep into the lane.
COPPELL 62 ROCKWALL 58
Balanced scoring with 4 players in double figures, was the key to Coppell's win over Rockwall. Coppell was paced by SIMI SOCKS (15 points) who scored 2 crucial baskets late to open up a lead that the Cowboys held to the end. Other Cowboys in double figures were BRANDON WATSON (14 points), CODY CARVER (12 points) and JOSH FEITL (10 points).
Rockwall was led by Oklahoma State commit AUSTIN GRANDSTAFF who poured in 30 points including going 9 for 9 from the line. JOSEPH WILLIAMS also chipped in 11 points for the Yellow Jackets.
SIMI SOCKS 6-6 2014 4/3 Man
Has a good basketball body, shapes up well on the post, uses his size to power the ball to the rim, can step out and hit the 15 foot shot.
AUSTIN GRANDSTAFF 6-4 2015 1/2
A big time scorer, hits 3's, mid-range pull up jumpers or gets to the rim. He knows how to draw the foul and cashes in at the line, sees the floor and makes very good passes, is a good ball handler and has good 1 on 1 moves.
