The Summer Creek Bulldogs and Atascocita Eagles, both ranked in the top 10 of 6A boys basketball by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches, have been two of the most consistent teams in the state all year.

This week, they both picked up key wins, continuing on an impending collision course for a key matchup Feb. 4.

The Kingwood Mustangs tied a bow on the first round of District 22-6A play on Friday with a convincing 54-34 victory over Sam Rayburn at home.

Tommy Newman poured in 18 points and Walker Blaine added 13 more as the Mustangs kept pace with the top teams in the district, finishing the first round with a 6-2 district mark and a 16-8 record overall.

Even though it was during the holiday school break, on Jan. 3 several hundred fans turned out to honor Kingwood High School’s legendary basketball coach Royce Huseman in a game halftime ceremony.

A Walker Blaine putback at the buzzer lifted Kingwood to a hard-fought 60-58 victory at Humble early last week. Blaine led the team in scoring with 15 points, but none were bigger than his buzzer beater.

Atascocita: The Lady Eagles soccer team blanked Alief Taylor, 6-0, last week before tying with Klein Collins, 0-0. Victoria Arenivas, Lindsey Davis, Nia Musquiz and Brianna Hoffman all scored goals with assists from Haylli Roe and McKinley Brady. 


Elyssa Coleman scored 50 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in a recent 84-22 victory at home over South Houston. Blake Matthews pumped in 24 points in an 84-23 road victory over Pasadena Memorial. Coleman hauled in 17 rebounds and Dede Davis handed out eight assists.


After opening the District 22-6A season with three consecutive victories, the Lady Wildcats dropped league matches last week to Dobie (50-46) and Summer Creek (71-36). They look to get back to their winning ways this weekend at the DeKaney Tournament.
