Private school powers Episcopal and Houston Christian meet in a big Southwest Preparatory Conference clash…
Episcopal comes out ready to run, Gerard Edwards lays it in off the glass to finish the fast break for the Knights.
At the other end, Houston Christian’s Elijah Bernstein darts into the lane and tosses up the acrobatic circus shot and gets it go, what a play right there.
But Episcopal builds a five-point first quarter lead as DJ Nussbaum (Noose-bomb) hits the free-throw line jumper for the Knights.
Mustangs answer from the outside the arc in the 2nd, as Jack Torn swishes the long three pointer.
Episcopal heats up from the perimeter also, D.A. Houston uses the pump fake to free himself up for the open three and he nails it.
Later, its Edwards open in the corner and he rattles it home for three more, Knights up by 7 at halftime.
Episcopal on the fast break in the third, and Jahari Long skies for the one-handed flush for two of his team-high 16 points and the Knights lead by double-digits.
Houston Christian comes storming back as Trent O’Hara drains the three for the Mustangs.
Then it’s Noah Kon on the run, he pushes it ahead to O’Hara for two more and the Mustangs go up by five midway through the fourth.
Episcopal responds as the Knights grab the loose ball and get it to Will Turlington for the fast break layup.
And then it’s Houston with the steal and he takes it all the way, basket and the foul, he scores 15, and Episcopal wins a wild one over Houston Christian, 60-56 is the final.
