Final 4 at Mansfield set

When I checked out the bracket for the Mansfield Spring Creek Tournament, I figured if everything fell right, I would be in for a treat Friday night and the phrase "saving the best for last" certainly works.In one quarterfinal, Mansfield Timberview defeated Irving MacArthur 54-47 in OT in a game filled with energy and excitement Jalea Bennett scored all 11 opening quarter points for Timberview, Tana Driver's 3 wih two seconds sent it into overtime and a variety of players from both teams coming up big including Dayo Olabode who dropped 16 for Timberview while Jaz Taylor was on fire for IMac with 20

In  the final game of the night, Flower Mound Marcus lived up to what I've been hearing as they outlasted Stony Point 60-53. This was another game to could have gone either way as they traded leads several times as the momentum kept changing however a late 15-1 run by Marcus sealed their victory. Vanessa Jones (14) Jasmine Richard (13) ad Morgan Easley (12) were high scorers for Marcus while Autumn Avina (18) and Jordan Moore (16) led the way for Stony point.

Timberview plays Marcus at 11:30 today, Marcus defeated them earlier this season, while Bowie and Pflugerville battle at 1:15. To get to semi's, Bowie held on to defeat Aledo 51-45 while "The Fluge"  defeated Cibolo Steele 67-54. Those two games will be at Timberview
