It's middle school week on the blog as most of their seasons are coming to an end. I caught up with DD Dobbins from Alice Johnson and Faith Cook from Highlands. Cook is one of the top 7th graders in the area and would be starting on many varsity teams right now. Here's another freebie for the guys to fight over.

Big Tuesday Action-1/25

Playoffs begin in a little over three weeks and several big games are coming up to determine who wins their district along with who makes the playoffs.


Dekaney will in district, it's only a matter of will they go undefeated. Out of their 5 remaining games, Klein Forest have come closer than any district team, they lost by 19. There are two games that involve four teams still in the hunt for three spots, Klein Collins @ Klein Oak and Klein Forest @ Klein. Klein Oak pulled off an upset against Collins on the road the first go round, Klein pulled off an even bigger upset also on the road on a last second banker from Ashley Alexander

Colins and Oak are tied fourth place, loser will drop to fifth. Klein and KF are tied for second, loser will be tied for third
The Woodlands travel to Atascocita and will either leave tied for the district lead or have the district championship in the bag. The Taz lost the first game after Curtyce Knox went down early in first quarter and are looking for revenge. In case there is a tie, I don't know what the rules are for a tiebreaker, some flip a coin, some play a playoff, some use margin of victory average and some go by who won it last. I'm sure there are others I'm not aware of but both teams are ranked in TABC Top 25.
Cy Woods @ Cy Ranch. Woods has one loss in district, 52-50 to Cy Fair in their one and only meeting, they are tied for second place. Some district have certain teams playing each other only once, which is good news for many teams and a tough break for others. Woods is two games ahead of Ranch and Cy Creek, who are tied for fourth place and a game behind Cy Falls, the number one team in the state. Their only meeting will be February 8th.


Memorial @ Cinco Ranch and Katy Taylor @ Mayde Creek are two giant games in the district. Memorial and Cinco are tied for second place, a game behind Katy Taylor. Mayde Creek is in fourth place, a game ahead of Seven Lakes.

HISD Rivalry

In what has become one of the most heated rivalries in the area, Bellaire wins round 2, story on

Monday, January 17, 2011

Big Tuesday Action-1/18

As the first half ends for many districts, positioning for seeds are ever so important for many teams.

Cy Creek vs Cy Fair, a Creek loss could mean no playoffs, same thing for Clear Creek who plays Clear Springs

Kempner plays Hightower and is trying to stay in contention for not only a playoff spot, but possibly a district championship

College Park is two games behind The Woodlands and a win could make the upcoming Woodlands vs Atascocita even more interesting

The Under the Spotlight game will be Westside vs Bellaire, Westside won the first meeting in the HISD Tournament. These teams have made it to the Regional Final Four a combined 5 times in the last 5 years, both made it last season and a combined 4 times (2 each) to the Regional Final game

A&M over Missouri 85-40

It was simply an awsome display of energy by the Aggies. If they stay healthy, the sky is defintely the limit for this high powered squad.

Pics from St Agnes @ St Pius

What a weekend so far. Watched the number one team in the state take care of business last night. Worked out at the gym this morning. Watched the Aggies blow out Missouri, GO SYDNEY! Caught some exciting JV and Varsity action this afternoon and here are some pics, plus the varsity write up is on GPR
