The Wylie boys basketball team stayed perfect in Catclaw Classic play with a pair of wins Friday, while Cooper split a pair of games and Abilene High went 0-2.
The Bulldogs, who routed San Angelo Lake View 73-31 to open the tournament on Thursday, downed Bullard Brook Hill (58-38) and Canyon (57-40) on Day 2 to take the top spot in Pool A and earn a date in Saturday’s championship game with Pool B winner Midland Christian. That game is slated to tip off at 3 p.m.
Cooper, meanwhile, rebounded from Thursday’s 56-53 loss to Midland Christian with a 69-65 overtime win over Abilene High before falling 64-62 to Fort Worth Chisholm Trail on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer. The Cougars, Pool B’s third-place team, will face Pool A No. 3 Bullard Brook Hill at 2 p.m. Saturday.
Abilene High, which lost to Chisholm Trail 51-48 on Thursday, fell to 0-3 in Catclaw action Friday, following the loss to Cooper with a 52-37 loss to Midland Christian. The Eagles took fourth in Pool B and were scheduled to face off with Lake View on the Classic’s final day, but that game was canceled due to the wintry weather in Abilene on Saturday.
