North Shore ends month #1 but Cy Fair's up next

I expected a fight between North Shore and Atascocita last Monday so I loaded up the truck and moved out to Beverly, well Will Clayton where the Eagles hosted the Mustangs. North Shore coming off a stunning championship at the Texas Invitational defeating Cy Woods in the finals while Atascocita also surprised me by defeating Port Arthur Memorial in the Aldine Invitational and I may as well throw in the hat trick because I was totally amazed that Cy Ranch beat Dekaney for the FNISD Tournament title but to be honest with you, that's what I love to see, the unexpected

I didn't expect Anacia Wilkinson @_AWXXIV  to start the game off with 8 or 10 early points including a three as she was simply on fire as she helped Atascocita jump out to a high double digit lead in thhe first half, Wilkinson also was huge in the Eagles Aldine Invitational championship as the Tennessee Tech signee wants to close out her career with a bang as she and her twin tower teammate Hannah Hopkins @hanalyhop are are combo to deal with. Hopkins caught fire in the second half and although a junior she has already committed to Rice and when the guards are clicking, like Shae Moore did down the stretch, this team will be a problem when the playoffs come around

Got a new rhyme for you just for Thanksgiving and it goes like this. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, #sizedontmatter ask Adriiana and Chastity. Well Adriiana Jackson @Roiiyalcranium  and Chasity Patterson @Lil_BitREAL are the fuel that starts the Mustangs engine and when they get going, those kids can create some huge issues on both ends. When you have as many high energy guards as the Mustangs, well this is why I initially had them as the top pick but the improvement of 6'2 Alyssa Okoene is simply icing on the cake. Tre Norris and Shae Johnson would be starting for most of the teams in the city however they provided a spark off the bench, on both ends plus once Deja Hughes is 100% , I think this team will simply be a problem for many

One thing is for certain, it doesn't get any easier for them to stay in that top spot because they face one of the toughest defensive teams Tuesday, they travel to Cy Fair and then that highly anticipated rematch with Cy Woods could happen in the Peggy Whitley classic next weekend so I'm thinking that's a Friday /Saturday stay for me
