Clear Lake over Dobie 75-60.

Not a particularly exciting game. Lake led early on and maintained their lead throughout the game. Lake was up 15 at the half.

Lake played without their leading scorer, Ajare Sanni, was out due to tendonitis. Here's hoping Sanni will get better soon.

 

Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017 , Lamar over Clear Lake 83-73

On the anniversary of the dedication of Krueger Field House (11 years ago), the Falcons traveled to Houston Lamar to do battle with their HISD opponents in the old, dimly lit, crowded Lamar gym. This game was an extremely fast paced, intense basketball game characteristic of the rivalry between these two teams. With the exception of some sub-par officiating at times, this was an exciting game to watch.

Lamar's premier guard, Tamir Benjamin, racked up 44 points against the noticeably good, but inadequate defense of Clear Lake. This will go down as one of the greatest offensive performances against a Lake team. There have been only a handful of opponents who have scored over 40 on Lake. Thomas Walkup from Deer Park and Alvin Franklin come to mind. In case you are wondering - the highest score achieved by a Lake opponent was Artie Griffin (San Antonio Lee High School),  who scored 52 points on Lake in a San Antonio tournament in 1990.

Speaking of records. Lake might have set a record for the number of missed shots from within 2 feet of the basket in this game.

Combining Tamir's output with the impressive athleticism of #3, Myles Burns, who racked in 18 pts was just too much for the Falcons to handle at times. For the math geeks in the crowd, yes two players did 75% of the scoring for Lamar.

Clear Lake will face very few opponents this season who can withstand the intensity of a game like this Lamar game. 

 

Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017 

Clear Lake took it to a talented Houston Christian team 79-65 at the Aldine Campbell Center Saturday afternoon. In what was perhaps the most impressive season opener for Lake since the arrival of Coach Penders in 2009, the Falcons put on a balanced display of talent and teamwork to dominate their opponents. After a series of miscues in the initial minutes of the game, Lake was up by 1, 15-14 at the end of the first quarter before outscoring their opponents by 14 points in the first 3 minutes of the second period. Against a very good basketball team, Lake was up by 20 at the half and led by as much as 23 in the second half before calling off the dogs with over 5 minutes remaining.

If we can keep injuries to a minimum, this is going to be a very special season.
