LATEST NEWS

Feb 9, 2016: Brazoswood 59 - Clear Lake 58. Lake's record is now 16-13, 6-6. Scott Bolen went 7 of 8 for 15 points. Ajare Sanni went 7 of 8 from the free throw line and 4 of 13 from the field for 15 points. 

Feb 5, 2016: Clear Lake 65 - Clear Falls 50. Lake's record is now 16-12, 6-5. Scott Bolen would share the imaginary award of the game ball with John Culbertson. Each had 18 points. Scott Bolen had a double double with 11 rebounds he raked in. This is the sixth game this season he has scored 15 or more points.

Feb 2, 2016: Clear Lake 62 - Clear Brook 54. Lake's record is now 15-12, 5-5. This was an intense basketball game that was thrilling to watch from start to finish. In the previous meeting between these two teams Brook prevailed by outscoring Lake by 20 points. Tonight a determined Lake squad denied Brook another victory by shooting well, doing a better job of rebounding, and cutting down on turnovers. Free throw shooting was weak at 64% (16 of 25).  Brook's was also weak at 63%. Brook's David Azore (#22) (junior) led all scorers with 27 points. Lake's freshman sensation Jeremiah Maldonado had 21, Ajare Sanni had 19, and Jake Ostrowski, who played with a fire in his belly so hot you could almost feel the heat, had 14 points. Friday Lake plays at home versus Clear Falls. With 4 games remaining in regular district play Lake must sustain the level of play demonstrated tonight if we wish to make the playoffs.

 

OTHER NEWS

Playoff picture as of 2-10-16:

Dickinson is in first place (10 wins) with Creek and Springs to play.

Creek is in 2nd with 9 wins and Dickinson and Lake to play. 

Brook has 7 wins with Brazoswood and Friendswood remaining to play.

Springs has 7 wins with Falls and Dickinson to play.

Lake has 6 wins with Friendswood and Creek remaining. 

Most hopeful scenario:  If Springs loses to Dickinson and Lake wins its two remaining games, Lake would be tied with Springs and have a playoff game with Springs to determine 4th place and a playoff berth.

UIL Realignment 

With the UIL redistricting plan for 2016-17 just announced it looks like Lake fans can say goodbye to the trek down to Brazoswood. Bwood will move to another district and Alvin will join our District 24-6A. More good news: the Fort Bend schools have been assigned to District 20 next year so we will not have to face them in the first round of the playoffs.

 

 As the season progresses the summary articles by month are posted on the  "FALCON FLASHES" Page.
