SETX boys basketball teams are flexing their muscles

There's still five SETX football teams on the long road to State, but area basketball teams are already proving to be contenders. A total of seven local boys basketball teams are ranked in the latest Texas Association of Basketball Coaches state rankings.

In 6A Beaumont United is up at notch at twenty-one with a (6-3) record. The Timberwolves are coming off a solid (4-1) week that included a big wins over defending 5A State Champion Port Arthur Memorial, Kinkaid, Baytown Sterling and Houston Austin. The U's only loss was a ten-point setback to North Shore.

Speaking of Port Artur Memorial, the Titans (6-4) are hanging touch at number twelve. Port Arthur bounced back form a five-point loss against United with a (4-1) finish at the Goose Creek Memorial Patriot Invitational. The Titans opened tournament play with a 47-point win over Milby before being edged by two against Houston Memorial. PA ended closed out the weekend with wins over Kempner, Terry and Clear Brook.

New district rival Barbers Hill is ranked twentieth this week week with a (11-3) mark. The Eagles went (5-1) last week with their only loss coming against Aldine Nimitz. The Hill took care of business against Baytown Sterling (66-56), Tuloso Midway (84-56), Clear Springs (54-43), Galveston Ball (70-58) and Summer Creek (56-34).

For the first time this year two-time defending 4A State Champion Silsbee is not number one. The Tigers went (3-2) last week to even their record at (4-4). Silsbee grabbed a solid road win at West Brook (75-70) before traveling to the South San Tournament in the Alamo City. The maroon and white took care of business in their opener, thumping 5A San Antonio Kennedy, 106-66. Silsbee picked up their third-straight win of the week when they downed San Antonio Warren, 86-77. After that things went downhill. The Tigers were topped by 6A San Antonio Johnson, 82-70 in overtime. During the extra period three key Silsbee players picked up technical fouls and were held out of their next game. The loss of that much talent was too much to overcome as Dallas Bishop Lynch pulled away for a 73-48 win.

Meanwhile in 4A, the High Flying Hawks of Hardin-Jefferson are soaring again at number eleven. Clay Davis' team is (10-1) after winning the Aransas Pass Best of The Bay Tournament. In all HJ was (7-0) for the week. The Hawks topped Goose Creek Memorial (72-63) on Tuesday before traveling down the coast. HJ proved they were by far the Best of The Bay after cruising through the tournament with six dominating wins over Corpus Christi Calallen (78-28), Ingleside (65-40), Port Aransas (79-35), Zapata (90-35), Rockport-Fulton (54-38) and Aransas Pass (71-61).

In one of the more unusual situations, East Chambers is ranked second despite not playing a single game. The Buccaneers are too busy making history on the football field with their first State Quarterfinal appearance in program history. But rest assure once Todd Sutherland's team hits the court at full strength they'll be impressive.

Last, but not least, Legacy Christian checks in at number four in the 3A Private school rankings. The Warriors are (4-3) after going (3-2) last week. Legacy was crushed by Hutington on Tuesday before a solid showing at the Bay Area Christian Tournament. LCA grabbed three wins, with their only loss coming to KIPP Sunnyside.
