Texas State Finals

Houston Yates 94 Dallas Kimball 78

As forecasted Yates was too quick and too deep for anyone to give them a game. In fact, their only loss this season was to a talented Alief Elsik team coached by veteran Tim Martin.

My, how time flies by as Joe Young led Yates to their State 4A Championship by dropping 29 points tonight on Kimball. Seems like just yesterday that his father, Michael Young was rattling dunks for the famous Phi Slamma Jamma fraternity at the University of Houston.

Congratulations to Coach Greg Wise on his long awaited championship. Yates plays at a breakneck speed, but not with reckless abandon. Their timing and spacing on their relentless pressing and trapping game are a thing of beauty. Have you ever heard of a team causing 40 turnovers in agame, as the Lions did in the Semifinals v. Mansfield Timberview? Simply amazing!
