Let’s start with a play-in game in Katy ISD, as Cinco Ranch and Mayde Creek meet with a playoff berth on the line…
Early on, Mayde Creek’s Rommell Williams spots up in the corner and splashes home the three for the Rams.
Later, it’s Williams running the break and he dishes to Anthony Pelzer for the easy layin for Mayde Creek.
Same duo in transition again, and this time it’s Williams finishing with the layup for two of his game-high 24 points.
More Mayde Creek, Joseph Vanegas blows past his defender, basket and the foul for Vanegas, Rams lead by double digits in the 2nd quarter.
Cinco Ranch claws its way back, Hunter Betke pulls up for three from the wing and buries it for the Cougars.
Moving to the fourth, Cinco’s Jonathan Joseph draws the foul and gets the off-balance shot to go, Cougars pull within one at 44-43.
It’s 45-43 Mayde Creek with 2.4 seconds to go, Betke gets one last shot at the buzzer for the win, but it just rattles out, and Mayde Creek survives with a thrilling 45-43 win over Cinco Ranch.
