It's not too often I get a chance to report on JV basketball as I'm running in a hundred directions but with a quiet varsity slate this weekend the Georgetown JV Tournament took center stage . Austin Westlake is quietly establishing their program as quality from top to bottom under the leadership of Varsity Head Coach Tres Ellis.  He's got a nice vasity squad but his JV is stocked and waiting their turn for next year.
2014 G "Long "Range" Luke Rowan whose older brother R.J. is a huge part of their varsity success looks to carve out his own niche as he proves to be a potent scorer on the perimeter.

Despite missing 4 players who traveled to Houston for the Chaps football playoff game (They lost) their deep JV squad took the Georgetown title.  The most exciting game was the semi final as Round Rock Westwood came charging back  from a 25 point deficit in the 4th quarter and barely missed derailing the Chaps who won 86-85.  2014 G Luke Rowan led the way with 21 points. Westlake Bigs, 2013 Jackson Carter (16) and 2014 Jack Getman (19) were also key in the win.

The championship was less dramatic with Westlake beating Lake Travis 63-55. Getman led the way with 23 points and 12 rebounds, while promising 2015 G prospect Harrison Hackney had 14 points and 5 assists to secure the title.
2015 G Harrison Hackney show plenty of promise for Westlake
