DEVINE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
Dilley rolled to a lopsided 71-48 win over San Antonio West Campus in the District 27-3A opener for both teams last Friday, December 17.
The Wolves would jump out to a 21-point 43-22 lead at the half. They would outscore the Cougars 17-15 in the third to increase the margin to 60-37 going into the final stanza. Dilley would hold on to claim the 23-point 71-48 decision.
“We finished our non-district schedule at 7-8,” DHS Head Coach Terrence Wadley said. “That is a huge improvement from 1-5 last year, considering the level of competition we have faced.”
In action prior to their league opener, the Wolves dropped a 58-39 decision to Carrizo Springs and went 1-3 at the Devine tournament, falling to Wharton in the third place contest. Dilley opened the event with its second win of the season over the host Warhorses, earning a 52-45 decision. Vicente Cantu paced the team with 22 points.
Dilley would play twice on Friday, December 10, falling to San Antonio Pieper 59-36 and losing a 65-43 decision to Hondo.
“Missed opportunities hurt us against Pieper,” Coach Wadley said. “We were then up 27-26 at the half against Hondo but good shooting in the third by Owls and early foul trouble for us made it hard to maintain the lead.”
Dilley returned to Devine on Saturday to take on Wharton in the third place contest. The Tigers rolled as they claimed a 65-25 decision.
“The speed and height of Wharton was more than we could handle,” Wadley said.
Juan Cano was named to the all tournament team.
Dilley was at Karnes City on Tuesday, December 21 and following the Christmas break, will host Natalia on December 28 before traveling to Jourdanton on December 31.
