Bowie kept up its dominant play in the Fort Worth ISD Classic tournament last weekend, winning the championship game against Fort Worth Dunbar on Saturday night by a final of 93-59.
The game was never really close, as the Volunteers entered the fourth quarter leading Dunbar 78-44. They led Dunbar 60-36 at halftime.
En route to the championship, Bowie defeated school district rival Lamar, Denton Guyer, Fort Worth Wyatt and Fort Worth Arlington Heights.
• Lamar defeated Mansfield Summit 56-55 and Keller Fossil Ridge 49-48 at the Fort Worth tournament.
• In the Whataburger Tournament, a much watched matchup pitted Euless Trinity top basketball recruit Myles Turner against Myles Garrett, Martin’s top football recruit. The Trojans won the Friday game 62-60 in their first win at the tournament in 11 seasons. Martin’s Nick Babb had 25 points.
The loss came in the Orange Bracket consolation game.
The Warriors would suffer another close loss in an extra game against Richland, 64-60. This time the scoring was led by Josh Swearingin, who had 18 points. Garrett missed the game to play in the Under Armor All-American football game.
• Arlington may have picked up a little momentum in the Moritz Holiday Classic. The struggling Colts posted victories over Haltom (50-45) and Aledo (63-56) before losing to Converse Judson by a 68-21 final. The Colts also surrendered a shot at third place in the tournament with a 60-47 loss to Mansfield.
Bowie dropped its semifinal game in the Spring Creek Invitational last weekend to Pflugerville by a 56-50 final.
Emerald Mayfield had 14 points and Jaye Cage had 12 for the Lady Volunteers.
• Martin defeated Plano John Paul II 39-37 in overtime in the same tournament, but would lose to Keller 46-36. Maddie Karickhoff led the Lady Warriors with 13 points against Keller.
• Also at the Spring Creek Invitational, Lamar took a 52-39 victory against Mansfield Legacy and a 55-50 win over South Grand Prairie after losing to Mansfield 47-42.
