30-5A BOYS BASKETBALL: Rattlers get back on track

MISSION – You never know how a team will respond after a tough loss. Some will recommit while others will give in. For David Keith's Sharyland, they recommitted in a big way after dropping Tuesday's matchup with Memorial. Last night the Rattler's took out their anger by smashing the Mission Eagles 73-37 in a home win that puts the team at 3-2 in district.

“They have been pretty angry,” said Keith of his team after the game. “The lesson learned from Tuesday was a hard one.”

Sharyland still working out the wrinkles

20110111_Sharyland-v-McAllen-Memorial-Boys-Basketball_037Simply put, a .500 start for the Sharyland Rattlers in District 30-5A boys basketball is disappointing.

“We got a lot of work to do,” says Head Coach David Keith, whose team is now 2-2 after losing to Memorial on Tuesday and to Rowe on the first day of district play. (See Tuesday’s game story and photos online at www.progresstimes.net.)

Missed free throws doom Rattlers in loss to Memorial

20110111_Sharyland-v-McAllen-Memorial-Boys-Basketball_040When it comes down to the final minutes, it is the big shots that matter. Though the Sharyland Rattlers outplayed the Memorial Mustangs for three quarters and a half, it was the Mustangs who come through in the end, spurred by a home crowd to win 54-51 in a key District 30-5A match-up.

“We missed some key layups and key free throws that cost us the game,” said Rattler head coach David Keith following the game. “They had some guys step up that hit some big shots that normally don't. That was the difference in the game.”

30-5A BOYS BASKETBALL: Memorial hands La Joya first district loss

20110107-La-Joya-v-Memorial-Basketball

LA JOYA -- A sloppy second quarter doomed the La Joya Coyotes and gave the basketball squad its first district loss after losing to McAllen Memorial, 69-52 Tuesday night in at La Joya High School.

The Coyotes (12-8, 2-1) started the first quarter slow, allowing the Mustangs (13-8, 3-0) to take a quick 7-2 lead. La Joya would respond when Ricky Castillo hit a three that would start an 11-2 Coyote run that was spurred by cold outside shooting by Memorial.
