Austin Westlake 90 Arlington Martin 62 (Whataburger Classic)

Austin Westlake, my preseason favorite out of Region 4 in Texas 5A is continuing to build it's rep around the State. After narrowly losing the Championship of two major pre-Christmas Tournaments, Westlake smashed Arlington Martin in the opening game of the Dallas Whataburger Classic.

Westlake lost the championship of the Lonestar Invitational in San Antonio to Laredo United on a last second shot, and then lost a hard fought championship game in the last minute of the Houston McDonald's Invitational to the State's likely #1 team in 5A, Houston Bellaire.Above: 2010 PG Cody Doolin (San Francisco) scored 23 for the Chaps, while 2010 W 6'6" Conner Kemper led Westlake with 25. Kemper is one of the top unsigned 2010's in Texas, with near Ivy SAT scores and grades he will be a great get for an academic oriented D-1 school in the April signing period. Kemper has greatly inproved his aggressiveness and rebounding in addition to having one of the prettiest perimeter strokes around. D-1 coaches stop flirting, and make your move! Coach Max

Westlake should get a tern test today as they play one of California's top teams in Long Beach Poly today at 2PM
