Clear Springs vs Hightower Tuesday @ Manvel 6pm
Clear Springs and Hightower met back in December in the Sandra Meadows Classic, how ironic and six degrees of separation sort of applies as SMC winner Duncanville is the favorite to win it all but first things first. The Chargers won that game by a little over 20 but this isn't the same Hurricanes team as they met on that cold winter night, wait, I wasn't even there so scratch that
Tasharian Robinson has put up numerous triple doubles over the season and averaging just that in district play while fellow 2017 standout Sierra Cheetam leads the team in scoring at 13 ppg, both are among the states top juniors, followed by sophomore sensation Dymond Gladney one of the top PGs in her class in Texas is right behind her at 12 ppg, senior Destini Hall at 11 while Robinson is right around 10 so when you have multiple players that can score double digits, you're going to create some issues but the biggest issue all Charger teams have brought over the years is "HEAT ON D"
On the flip side of that SMC game, no Taylor Holland, no Treazure Mouton as both were out with injuries however they've returned and when you add a couple of D1 players into the equation, you don't have to score an 800 on the math portion of the SAT to figure this will be a different game. With explosive Maddison Glass running the one, as well as long ball threat Jasmine Harvey, you've got some firepower but a big S/O to Eneily Rodriguez and Lenecia Mitchell for helping keep things together as they get ready for the run
Who will advance, I have no idea but this should be an entertaining game filled with excitement and both teams have already been to state so the tradition is there
