Three days before Christmas, North Shore and Duncanville played in one of the most memorable games in Texas high school football history. The Mustangs ultimately wrapped up the 2018 Texas high school football season with a Dematrius Davis Hail Mary touchdown pass to AJ Carter and a 41-36 win at Arlington's AT&T Stadium.
76 days later, the schools met again in the UIL 6A boys basketball state semifinal at San Antonio's Alamodome. This one did not come down to the wire, with Duncanville bouncing back from a 10-point second half deficit and leading by as much as nine in the fourth quarter.
"We had no feelings about what happened in football," Duncanville coach David Peavy said coming in. "Now, after it's over with, if we can make our community feel a little bit better about what happened a couple months ago, then great."
VYPE Player of the Game Jahmius Ramsey scored six of his 16 points in the final quarter, and also led all players with 11 rebounds.
"They were double teaming me, and my coach told me to trust my teammates," said Ramsey. "That's exactly what I did. [Put the] ball in my hands, make plays [and] I just kept rebounding to give us extra possessions."
Along with Ramsey, Duncanville also got 18 points from Micah Peavy, 13 from Ja'Bryant Hill and 10 from Damon Nicholas. That outmatched North Shore's attack, which only had Bruce Scott (19 points) finishing in double figures.
