McDonald's Texas Invitational Tournament: Pasadena, TX

The McDonald's Texas Invitational Tournament held in Pasadena, Texas is one of the country's best run events to open the school year.  The outstanding field of teams includes one team from Austin, five teams from San Antonio and many of Dallas' and Houston's top notch prep teams.

Pool Play Results
Austin Westlake   54   Manvel 40                              2012 P 6'6" Drew Wikelius scored 14
Desoto 59  Austin Westlake 55                                  2012 G R.J. Rowan-18 2013 G Will Morse-18
 Wikelius body looks good.  He's shed his baby fat and has developed a mean streak on the court.  He's finishing much stronger around the goal in his senior year.
Morse, in his second year as a starter for Austin Westlake has a lot more help this season but he'll still need to be the Chaps leading scorer most nights for them to have a lot of success.

Converse Judson  66   Fort Bend Marshall  56            2012 G E.J. Hubbard scores 14
North Crowley 72   Converse Judson 67                      2012 G E.J. Hubbard scores 18

San Antonio Clark  54   Houston Bellaire  48              2012 G Niko Maxwell scores 17
San Antonio Clark 65  Mansfield Summit  44             2012 G Adam Perez scores 17

The Alamo City has had success with undersized Hispanic guards with high motors and a tough mental make up moving on to play Division 1 basketball (Paul Garnica, and Dylan Elias of Northern Colorado).  Perez should get the same opportunity with his steady play.

Flower Mound Marcus 75 San Antonio Madison 48   New Mexico signee Nick Banyard-14 pts
San Antonio Madison  52  La Marque  42                    Qualen Holloway scores 22
