  1. Welcome to Clear Lake Falcon Boys Varsity Basketball 

 Clear Lake Basketball publicizes the Clear Lake High School (Houston, Texas) Boys Varsity Basketball team to enhance the community's enjoyment of Clear Lake Boys basketball.

Clear Lake High School Boys Basketball has been regarded as one of the top tier Texas public school basketball programs for over four decades. This website strives to help perpetuate this proud heritage by highlighting the varsity team's  accomplishments. Click on the "HERITAGE" link in the menu above for more on Clear Lake's basketball heritage. 

            (For the latest news please scroll down a bit. For a list of this week's events including all games for all Lake teams, please scroll down to the bottom of this page).

Based on number of unique hits, this site is the # 1 team-specific high school basketball website in Texas and far exceeds average viewing hits among major high school and AAU websites. Now in its 18th season, this website is provided without advertising or donations by a dedicated Clear Lake Boys basketball fan. 

Season schedules, directions to schools, cumulative current season scoring stats, district standings, and TABC state rankings are provided.

In addition, occasional volunteer-provided game action photos, slideshows, team and roster photos, and occasional video highlights provide comprehensive coverage for one of many outstanding high school varsity basketball teams in Texas.

 December 15: Clear Lake 54 - Houston Christian 49

Casey 14, Jake 11, John 11. Lake had 23 turnovers in this outing and still won. HC was a strong defensive team. There were more fouls that should have been called but were not than in any game I can remember for quite sometime.



December 14, 2018: Clear Lake 73 - Baytown Sterling 47. Lake's record is 14-2

John Argue 24, Jake Mather 12,  JaJa Sanni 11, Casey Davis 9

John's stats after 15 games played: 18.4 ppg, 7.7 rpg, and 2.3 blocks per game. 

Under the topic of "see what lots of hard work and good coaching can do" - Some might "argue" about this but according to my recollection, John Argue is the most vastly improved player on a Lake varsity team in almost 20 years. Beyond that, one must go all the way back to the early '80's before finding another Falcon with such a degree of improved basketball skills. What makes John's improvement so noticeable is not just the degree of change over a three year period but the degree of change over the last one year period.

The Clear Lake coaching staff certainly deserves credit for John's improved performance but it should not be limited to that. People should be asking "Who is this kid's AAU coach?" More on that later. 




  Notice: several problems have begun to appear on this website: the advertisements at the top are not suppose to appear; often updates  made to report most recent game results are not appearing. In addition, some schedule revisions made have not appeared on the site. I apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
