Big Spring Jr. High girls will host a basketball tournament this weekend with games at Big Spring Jr. High on Thursday, Dec. 14 and Saturday, Dec. 16. The teams coming to the tournament are Sands, Colorado City, Coahoma, Forsan, Klondike and Andrews.
According to 8th Grade Social Studies teacher and Basketball Coach Sawyer J. Roberts, the 8th grade “B” team had a good game last night versus Sweetwater.
A great game defensively was turned in by Jesse Hernandez and Matthew Chavarria locking down the paint and making it hard for the Sweetwater attack to muster any offense.
"Offensively we were led by Roman Perez who turned in his 4th plus-10 point effort in five games with 13 points and Darin Sosan added 8 as well," stated Coach Roberts.
Standouts on offense were, Perez, Sosan, and Chavarria, the latter which facilitated the offense from his post position with good court vision and good passes.
Defensively they were led by great post play from Hernandez and Chavarria, and Adrien Juarez locking down whoever he was on and frustrating the Sweetwater attack.
The “B” team has ran their record to 4-1 on the year and will be traveling to Brownwood next week for their last basketball game before Christmas break.
