Leakey overtakes Cowboys’
in 4th place game
Uvalde -- The D’Hanis Cowboys advanced to the winners’
side of the bracket last Friday, Dec. 5, in the Southwest Texas
Junior College Basketball Tournament, but fell in the next two
games, to wind up in fourth place for the weekend.
D’Hanis pounded Nueces Canyon in the first-round game, 50-26,
but then ran into a tough defense in tourney champ Brackett,
falling 36-24, in the semifinals.
In the third place game against Leakey, the Cowboys led by two
points in the final minute. The Eagles buried a three-pointer to
take the lead. The Cowboys’ ensuing shot missed, and from there,
the game got away from D’Hanis, as Leakey free throws led to a
44-37 win for the Eagles.
The team will travel to the Natalia Tournament starting
Thursday, Dec. 11. Next Tuesday, Dec. 16, the Cowboys will travel
to San Antonio to take on St. Gerard.
