Moving up to Class 6A, Sam Houston taking on Bellaire…
Bellaire comes out firing from long distance, Willie McCoy drains the three from the corner for the Cardinals.
Then it’s Elijah Lawrence letting it fly from the wing for three more, Bellaire leads by 8 after one.
In the 2nd, Lawrence gets the steal for the Cards, he pushes it ahead to Jacob Cole and Cole slams it home for the fast break dunk.
Sam Houston looking to get back in it, Jackson Banks spots up in the corner and hits from 3-point range.
Then it’s Dylan Williams on the run for the Tigers, he takes it all the way and tosses it in for two.
Bellaire answers with some tempo of its own, Taylor Calvin with nice pass in transition to Jordan Johnson for the easy layin.
More Cardinals, Johnson launches the three and he’s fouled, Bellaire leads by 17 at halftime.
Bellaire keeps the pedal down in the 2nd half, Lawrence drives into the lane and lays it in for the deuce.
Later it’s Lawrence driving and he gets the friendly roll, and Bellaire coasts to a 55-42 win over Sam Houston.
