Texas D-1 Ambassadors 69 Cen Tex Shooters 57

The Cen Tex Shooters pose a tough match up at the best of times, but with only 6 players they really make life tough on you. This is as fundamentally sound a group as you'll find as old friends Jon Lindsey & Chris Blevins run a very structured offense involving lots of screens which almost always results in high percentage shot opportunities. The defense rarely gets a chance to rest against them and they make you work.

Cen Tex jumped out to a 6 point lead early and the first half ended almost even up. The D-1 Ambassadors above the rim athleticism of Texas A&M commit Daniel Alexander , high flyer D.J. Stephens and the sharp shooting of 2010 San Antonio Lee G Paul Garnica from behind the line made the difference in the 69-57 win.

Congratulations are in order for Cen Tex Shooter P (and former D-1 Ambassador) Deandre Perry as his mom, Candy informed me that he has verballed to the University of Houston to play WR for the Cougars. Look for him to make an impact in Conference USA as a tough, physical slot receiver. He was also offered by BCS Bowl Team, University of Utah Utes but elected to stay close to home.
