Cy Ranch vs Clear Creek Regional preview

I guess this game is somewhat fitting as Cy Ranch and Clear mirror each other in many ways. I guess the biggest way is I thought both of these teams would definitely make a run when their top players were freshmen however both teams have suffered injuries to key players at very inopportune times. Nevertheless here we are in the semifinal nightcap and lets meet the players. The game starts at the one and D'Asia Collins is one of the top 2018 PG's in Texas, I knew this would happen when she was 9 so nothing she does surprises me

 In the last two games, Ranch has had big pluses from Jala Buster who simply went off in the early going against Katy Taylor and Shadiya Thomas in the last game against Katy when she came off the bench with so much energy, she was part of the reason the momentum changed and gave the Mustangs a huge boost. Kween Jean has been solid in the middle while Ariana Whitfield has been clicking from mid and long range, she set a school record for 3's with 8 against Katy Taylor while DiDi Richards has simply done a little bit of everything as she tinkered with a triple double last game

Lacee Savage and Alex Simmons are both out for the Wildcats, had they been healthy you never know how this whole thing would have played out, well you still don't know because the two Hannahs, Froeschl and Zajac, are both capable of going completely off in this setting, trust me I've seen them do it too many times, not to mention the explosiveness Keondra White brings to the table. Caitlyn Burroway is just a gamer, she is one of those inside players that can face the basket and her mindset is "she will not be denied" so this should be an interesting game and I can't wait for the doubleheader to begin
