Merry Christmas to all from Texas Basketball Inc. I can only hope your few days were as blessed as mine. I spent Tuesday in Pflugerville playing golf in Assistant Coach David Raigosa's Christmas Classic held at Riverplace Country Club in Austin. After narrowly losing it last year I hacked my way around in the freezing cold and scored a John Daly-like 13 on one hole. YIKES
Christmas day was spent with my son, Chip capped off with an evening at the gym watching his practice at the University of Texas-San Antonio. Surveying practice with me was San Antonio Lee and Texas D-1 Ambassadors G Paul Garnica. I've been blessed to have had some of the State of Texas' best guard play in our program over the years including Bryan Beasley (Rice), Garland Judkins (Arizona), Jason Ebie (TCU), Colorado offeree Brandon Thompson, as well as UT-San Antonio commit Kendric Robinson. Garnica is in the same class plus of these guys.
I'll be on the road this Sunday and headed to Baton Rouge to report to you on Louisiana Hoops.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night...Coach Max
