LATEST NEWS

Tuesday, February 13, 2018. Clear Lake 88 -Clear Springs 72

In the final regular season game in District 24-6A the Clear Lake Falcons claimed the district co-championship with an impressive victory over Clear Springs by a score of 88-72. For those of you who know what carbon paper is, this game was a carbon copy of the first round game against Springs.  This game was close at the half 35-33, Lake up by 2. The Falcons took charge immediately in the second half and put on an impressive offensive display scoring 53 points in the second half. Ajare Sanni led all scorers with 29. Riley Abercrombie had 20 and Casey Davis had 19. Seven players scored. The Lake talent off the bench continues to impress the crowd. Clear Lake is now 29-5, 12-2.

A couple of words about the level of varsity competition in our district this year. DAMN TOUGH. Our district had at least 4 teams that could (and did) beat any other team in the district on a given night. Overall, the level of district competition this season was among the highest I have seen in almost two decades. So, winning the district championship this year is an outstanding accomplishment. As a consequence, our team is well seasoned and very ready for the playoffs. In addition, our team seems to be peaking at exactly the right time so many Falcon followers are eagerly awaiting the playoffs.     

 By the way, our Freshman A Team finished the season by only losing 1 game all season. Not 1 district game ---1 game all season. Season record of 25-1, Remarkable.  Way to Go guys!!! Only the varsity goes into the playoffs after the regular season is completed. Shucks! I would really like to see our freshmen play some more games.

  OTHER NEWS

- In the February 5 TABC 6A rankings, 7 of the state's top 16 teams (44%) are in our Region (III). So not only is our district really tough this year, but our region is also really tough. See the "Rankings" Page for the complete rankings list.

- Occasionally a late change will occur for a varsity game time or location so it is best to always re-check this website on game day. Changes are rare but they do happen.

- Once in awhile photos presented on this website which should appear do not appear. This is the fault of the service provider which manages all images and is not the fault of this website. 

As the season progresses see any back articles posted on the  "FALCON FLASHES" Page.

Link to Photo Albums Site: Due to difficulties with the revised photo albums site, the albums are not in chronological order and are not current. This issue is being addressed but will take time. Albums go back to 2001 but are disorganized.

Clicking on a photo other than the banner will link you to the Photo Albums site but be advised it is a mess .

Articles on AAU Basketball - In the summer of 2010 the Houston Chronicle ran an excellent five part series on AAU basketball which will be retained for future reference at the bottom of the "General Info" Page.
