ARLINGTON — Arlington Bowie center Dante Hales knew teammate Brandon Hall had been a giant slayer for the Volunteers this season.So when Hall drove the right side and threw up a 12-foot jumper, Hales figured he should back away for a long rebound.Hales ended up with the game-winner, following Hall’s jumper with a put-back basket as the buzzer sounded, and Bowie defeated Arlington Martin 55-53 on Friday night at the Warriors’ gymnasium. The victory set off a wild celebration and left Bowie (19-3, 7-0 District 3-5A) alone in first place in the district. “The only thing his shot is going to do is fall or come off long,” Hales said. “I didn’t figure I was going to have the chance [to shoot] so when I saw the ball, I just threw it back.”It was the winner in a big road victory for Bowie, the state’s 17th-ranked team in the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches poll.Hales, who didn’t play the second quarter because of foul trouble, showed up big in the second half, scoring eight of his 11 points. “What happened there at the end really showed how our team can mesh,” Bowie coach Allen Gratts said. “We wanted Dante to play more in the second half, so when he picked up his second foul we sat him so we’d have that presence in the middle.”Bowie guard David Chavlovich proved Martin’s biggest hurdle, scoring 21 points. But the Warriors (12-7, 6-1) held him scoreless in the fourth quarter.That helped Martin reel in the Vols and tie the game 53-53. Andrew Dotson and Nick Babb led Martin with 14 points each and Patrick Burke had 11.Hall finished with 14 for Bowie.
