Lady Wildcats Headed To TAPPS 4A State Competition

Senior guard Tiffany Davis will lead the Lady Wildcats to State...
The lady wildcats of Westbury Christian on a winning streak heads to state tournament after defeating Forth Worth Christian in the regional finals last weekend. They face Bishop Gorman from Tyler Texas at the Legacy in Mansfield Friday March 2nd. The lady wildcats was the only team left out of the four Houston teams that made the TAPPS 4A Elite 8. I was really hoping for a Houston final four, but I guess that's wishful thinking. GO H-TOWN!

Westbury Christian's girls basketball will try to win their 4th straight TAPPS 4A State crown.

They Are To Cross Path Again... Who Will Guard Who?

The two elite guards will meet again in a different flat form but the same game. Who wants it more? I took this picture this past summer when the two elite summer teams Cy Fair Premiere and DFW Elite Washington clashed in a tournament and McCarthy got the "W". This time Ocanas will have a chance to redeem herself on a bigger stage and a chance to grab the Region 3 title and possibly another shot for a State championship, but will McCarthy allows it? Let the games begin and may the best team WIN and keep Houston in the hunt for a deserving 5A State Title.

As the basketball season is winding down and TAPPS 4A State Championship is down to three games to be played.

The Westbury Christian Lady Wildcats Still Has It....

It comes down to the last seconds of the game when the lady wildcats proved that they wanted it more. Coming from behind with less than two minutes in the game Westbury Christian was still down by two points when junior Imani Smith stole the ball from the middle of the court getting an easy layup to put the lady wildcats on top. Senior guard Juliana Rosolino and Tiffany Davis hit back to back free throws with senior guard Sylvana Okde sealing the victory leading the lady wildcats with 28 points. Okde was unstoppable leading the charge to get the lady wildcats back in the game later in the 3rd and early in the 4th quarter.
The Lady Wildcats will host Dallas Christian at home this coming Saturday February 18th game time 11AM.

AAU & Summer Club Basketball Is Here

It's almost spring and school basketball is a few games away from district competition followed by regionals then state championships. Just around the corner club basketball is gearing to start and teams, coaches and players are all looking for what fits their needs. I am hoping to help link players and coaches. I have email inquiries of boys and girls looking for teams and so with coaches looking for players and tried to pass them around. I will be posting teams having tryouts and their contact information as I get the information available. More on HERE
