The New Jersey Nets beat the Golden State Warriors.
Nets forward Brian Scalabrine, who scored a career-high 29 points, said this in an interview: “I’ve got a great shooting coach, and all the practice finally paid off,” Scalabrine said. “And my music’s a big help. I listen in my headset before the game to get the right rhythm going.”
The Travis Tigers found the quickest way to a victory was straight to the hoop. The Tigers used a bruising inside game in the second half to pull away from the Clements Rangers for a 62-43 win Tuesday at Wheeler Fieldhouse. “Every win in district is a good win,” said Travis coach Craig Brownson said. “This gets us to 4-1 (in district play), which means we’re in a good spot. “Every game is a battle because every team is well-coached, so we got to come ready to play.”
By Michael Sudhalter Erica Dunson was honored, and then, she brought her ‘A’ game. The Klein Oak High junior missed the first quarter of the game because she was being sworn into the National Honor Society. But Dunson scored 14 points – all in the second half – to help lead the Lady Panthers past Spring, 59-38 Friday night during Parent Appreciation Night at Klein Oak. “I went out there and had fun with it,” Dunson said. Klein Oak (12-17, 4-5) led the Lady Lions (5-22, 0-9), 22-19 at halftime, but Dunson sparked a 7-0 run that put the team ahead 29-19.
