St. Thomas sports a big three in the Class of 2012; all Division One prospects in 6'9" P Jeremy King, 6'0" G Chase Brogna & 6'3" G Christian Sanders while Argyle had no players with that kind of name recognition. Something happened though as the visitors from the DFW area didn't seem to be aware of that. Proving that there isn't always a connect between having next level prospects and gutty, blue collar high school players it took double overtime before The Eagles finally snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.
This was a game of limited scoring opportunities as both teams played a 2-3 zone and Argyle was in no hurry to just jack up shots when they had their offensive possessions. I was impressed with the disciple displayed by Liberty Christian and their star player, Senior Eric Heidelmann. He finished with 21 points & 6 rebounds including five buckets from behind the three point line. As the first overtime wound down it was looking bleak for S.t Thomas until Christian Sanders hit a clutch three pointer with about a minute left in the game. St. Thomas are usually a sharp shooting bunch bit that was one of only three shots to go down from beyond the arc. Credit Argyle Liberty for playing hardnosed D.
