TOP PERFORMERS:


IRVING NIMITZ:


JARED JENKINS 5-10 2016 1 Man

Can hit the 3, pull up for jumper or finish at the rim. He is a nice ball handler and passer, knows how to draw the foul going to the hole and does a nice job running the offense.



DELONTE SCOTT 6-5 2015 3/4 Man

Long and athletic, can leap, likes to go to the rim, mostly a paint scorer, will get on the offensive glass and should continue to develop his game as he improves fundamentally.



IRVING HIGH:

NELSON VILLATORO 5-5 2014 1 Man

Can get hot and fill it up from behind the arc. A high energy player, quick and fast, pushes the ball in transition and makes things happen. Size becomes a factor when he gets deep into the lane.


COPPELL 62 ROCKWALL 58

Balanced scoring with 4 players in double figures, was the key to Coppell's win over Rockwall. Coppell was paced by SIMI SOCKS (15 points) who scored 2 crucial baskets late to open up a lead that the Cowboys held to the end. Other Cowboys in double figures were BRANDON WATSON (14 points), CODY CARVER (12 points) and JOSH FEITL (10 points).

Rockwall was led by Oklahoma State commit AUSTIN GRANDSTAFF who poured in 30 points including going 9 for 9 from the line. JOSEPH WILLIAMS also chipped in 11 points for the Yellow Jackets.


TOP PERFORMERS:


COPPELL:

SIMI SOCKS 6-6 2014 4/3 Man

Has a good basketball body, shapes up well on the post, uses his size to power the ball to the rim, can step out and hit the 15 foot shot.


ROCKWALL:

AUSTIN GRANDSTAFF 6-4 2015 1/2

A big time scorer, hits 3's, mid-range pull up jumpers or gets to the rim. He knows how to draw the foul and cashes in at the line, sees the floor and makes very good passes, is a good ball handler and has good 1 on 1 moves.
