Big Six Friday Game of the Night: Huskies at Patriots

MISSION – Since beginning District 32-4A a dismal 1-3, the Juarez-Lincoln Huskies have since won four of their last Friday. The solid run has put Juarez in a decent position to achieve their first postseason appearance ever.

Contrast that with the Veterans Memorial Patriots. Since starting district play 3-1—including a win over the Huskies—the Patriots have lost five of their last six and, unless they turn things around, are on the verge of missing the postseason for the first time in nine years.

“Big Six” Tuesday Night Recap: Lobos embarrass McHi in home win

20120117-palmview-v-mchi-boys-basketball-dy-028PALMVIEW –  The McHi Bulldogs brought their storied history, their 4-1 district record and a two-game win streak into the gym at Palmview High School Tuesday night but left with a 58-37 beating at the hands of the Lobos.

“I am thankful the basketball gods were looking down on us and helped us out,” said Lobo head coach Andy Saenz. “This is a big win for the program.”

Just yesterday the coach was saying it was not a question of whether his team could physically and athletically matchup with their opponents but if they could mentally stay with the district’s top teams. They did that and more as Palmview recovered from being down one point at the end of the first quarter, to scoring 28 points in the second and holding the Bulldogs to just four.

“Big Six” Tuesday Game of the Night: McHi Bulldogs at Palmview Lobos

PALMVIEW -- Two weeks ago the Palmview Lobos were at unprecedented heights for their boys basketball program. Due to a solid non-district record which was then followed by a 2-0 start in District 30-5A play, head coach Andy Saenz’s team rose as high as number two in the Valley Freedom Poll.

However, the team then faced Sharyland and Nikki Rowe—two of the district’s best—losing to the traditional powerhouses. Despite the quick fall back to .500, the Lobos responded with a dominating win over Donna last Friday and now have a chance to prove their ability to compete with the big boys by taking on McHi in tonight’s “Big Six” Game of the Night.
