1st Quarter Round Rock 10 Pflugerville 7
Out of the gate Round Rock's Richter has dropped a couple of treys on Pflugerville's home court to give the Dragons an early 8-3 lead over the Panthers. Good to see 2009 P 6'8" Osas Ebomwonyi back from his broken tibia earlier in the preseason. Once healthy, the Lamar signee can be a huge defensive difference maker for The Ville. Boom, just like that the "Sauce" grabs an offensive board, gets the layup..and 1..GOOD. RR 8- P'Ville 6.
2009 G J.J. Kearns drops a deuce for the Dragons and once again Osas goes to the line for a couple of additional trips and goes 1-4. As a matter of interest there are three Texas D-1 Ambassadors on the floor tonight who have already signed early. As mentioned Ebomwonyi, Pflugerville's PG Jonathon Garza and a first for our organization Round Rock's Dax Hill has committed to the Texas Longhorns on a swimming scholarship!

Garza drops a nice three on the catch and shoot. It has been an ugly game so far; scrappy, poor shot selection and sloppy ballhandling. We'll see which team settles down first.

Garza drops another nice transition dime to a streaking Jarrell Turner from the wing...and 1 is no good.

Dax Hill ties it with 2 free throws. Omozee with another slashing layup.
