Austin Area Games Of Note

Pflugerville Hendrickson 68 Austin Lake Travis 60 Balanced scoring from 2011 PG Jalen Harris (15) & 2011 W Jalen Washington (14) was key to the Hawks win over a dangerous Lake Travis squad.

Austin Westlake 55 Austin High 50 Senior PG Cody Doolin (San Francisco) shown below with the Texas D-1 Ambassadors continues to steamroll his Chaps to an undefeated district record as he scored 17 against their arch rival Maroons. Doolin continues to cement his hands down Cen Tex Player of the Year Honors, IMO.

Cedar Park 54 Round Rock McNeil 34 Where's A.J. Abrams when you need him? (Remember the days when AJ could drop 34 himself in a quarter?) He's in Greece, counting his scrilla. Cedar Park has been on a huge roll since Coach Brown has given the reins of the team over to 2011 CG 6'4" Dylan Cox.

Austin Akins 54 Bastrop 51 2010 W Kevin McFarlane continues to be a load as he dropped 22 for the Eagles in the win. 2011 G Josiah Monroe had 22 in the loss for the Bears.
Austin Reagan 80 Austin LBJ 79 This had to have the Delco Center rocking as the two Eastside rivals gots after each other. 2011 W 6'5" Jaquarius Daniels led the Raiders to their biggest win in years as he notched 25. 2011 LBJ G Darryl Roberts also had 25 for the Jags. Remember early in the year I forecasted the Raiders to win this district in an upset. Both teams are now deadlocked at 9-1 in district.
Killeen 67 Hutto 54 2011 P 6'7" Ta'Shaun Thomas (below) had 20 for the Runnin' Roos. The big fella runs the floor with ease, blocks shots, rebounds and has a nice touch up to 15 feet out from the goal. He'll suit up for the Texas D-1 Ambassadors once the high school campaign ends in a few weeks.

Austin St. Michael's 68 San Antonio Central Catholic 56 2011 SG Jake Kocher (shown below with the Texas D-1 Ambassadors) of SMA continues his torrid scoring as he dropped 31 points in the win. 2011 sniper Cole Martinez of Central had 24 for the Buttons in the loss. Kocher continues to expand his game and is becoming physically mature. Look for him to be in a dog fight with Pflugerville's Deon Mitchell and Reagan's JaQuarius Daniels next year for Cen Tex Player of the Year Honors.
