Evan Ren’s 2020 Gym Rat Team: The hardest workers in the Big Country

Scoring and rebounding is only part of the story when it comes to basketball. Behind the scenes and beyond the view of the public, is where character is often measured. And it is with our Big Country Preps Gym Rat Team that we salute the individuals who exude the most of it. 

This team isn’t about who the best players are, though some of the area’s top players are on this list. 

The Gym Rat team is about effort, discipline, toughness, coachability and selflessness — traits that coaches love above all else and that championship foundations are built upon.

It is for that reason that our Gym Rat team is selected entirely by area coaches, described in their own words. And Big Country Preps is absolutely honored to present these individuals to you — the best “team players” (boys and girls) that the area had to offer during the 2019-20 season.

Players are listed in no particular order. 

Enjoy.

BIG COUNTRY PREPS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Clyde’s Turner takes top spot with two perfectos

In a week that saw a ton of noteworthy performances, Clyde’s Kaitlyn Turner earned the top on our list. 

Aside from a sterling effort at the plate that saw the senior pitcher finish 9 of 15 with three home runs, nine RBIs and nine runs scored, she saved her top efforts for the circle.

There, she charted two perfect games, the first of which occurred in a 14-0 win over Lubbock High on Feb. 28. A day later, she delivered another in a 10-0 win over Brownwood. 

She struck out 23 batters in just 10 innings of work during the no-nos, both of which ended in the run rule.

GAME STORY: No. 7 Hermleigh comes up inches short against Veribest in II-1A final

The Hermleigh Lady Cardinals’ bid for their third consecutive state tournament berth came up just short Saturday night at Abilene Christian University’s Moody Coliseum. Literally.

With her team trailing Veribest by two points in the waning seconds of the the Region II-1A championship game, standout forward Makia Gonzales fired off a 3-pointer from the wing, hoping to earn her team one more trip to San Antonio before closing her stellar high school career.

The shot was on-line, but unfortunately for the Lady Cardinals, it was just a couple of inches short, bouncing off the front rim and out, allowing the Lady Falcons to secure a 27-25 victory and clinch their first state tournament berth in school history.

MANSFIELD — The Eula girls outscored Saltillo 11-7 in the first quarter Friday and added to their lead in each of the next two periods to secure a 42-34 win in the Region III-1A semifinals and earn a spot in Saturday’s title game against No. 3 Lipan.

 Coach Jamie Masonheimer’s squad led 19-14 at halftime, before increasing its lead to eight with a 9-6 run through the third quarter.

GAME STORY: Hermleigh pulls away from Blackwell, Veribest tops Aspermont in II-1A semis

The Hermleigh and Veribest girls basketball teams will meet for the Region II-1A championship on Saturday after each earned victories in the semifinals Friday at Abilene Christian University’s Moody Coliseum.

No. 23 Veribest (26-10) punched its ticket first, holding off Aspermont 49-43 in Friday’s early game, before seventh-ranked Hermleigh pulled away in the second half for a 43-27 win over No. 16 Blackwell.

The Lady Falcons and Lady Cardinals will now face off at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Moody for a spot in the Class 1A state tournament, slated for Sept. 5-7 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

GAME STORY: Jim Ned, Brock girls fall in regional (two box scores included)

PLAINVIEW — It wasn’t the Big Country’s night at Wayland Baptist University on Friday as Brock and Jim Ned were both eliminated in the Region I-3A semifinals in the Hutcherson Center. 

The evening opened with Idalou eliminating Brock 44-28, after which Jim Ned fell 47-40 to Shallowater in the nightcap. 

Both area clubs were plagued by cold shooting in the early going and neither recovered. 

Shallowater (34-2) will meet Idalou (32-7) for the regional title Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Hutcherson Center, with the winner advancing to the state tournament.

FEATURE: Sophomore nucleus helps Haskell reach regional tournament

Landry Hanson (3)

HASKELL — If the Haskell Maidens are to reach the Class 2A state tournament in San Antonio this season, they will do it with a sprinkling of experience and a heavy dose of young talent. 

Only one senior, Landry Hanson (15. 1 points, 6.6 boards per game), is on the roster, while three sophomores — Delaney Hanson, Emma Roewe and Melody Martinez — collectively contribute a large block of the team’s production. 

The Maidens (31-3) will take their youthful act on the road to Levelland Friday night, where they will meet Panhandle (30-5) in the Region I-2A semifinals at South Plains College at 6:30 p.m. 

The winner will take on either Stamford (26-7) or Gruver (30-2) in the regional title game set for 3:30 p.m. on Saturday in Levelland.

FEATURE: Jim Ned’s Galvin a key part of Lady Indians’ chances to reach San Antonio

TUSCOLA —If it can be said that no team makes it to the state tournament without productive guard play, then the Jim Ned Lady Indians could list themselves as viable candidates heading into Friday’s Region I-3A tournament in Plainview. 

Senior Brooke Galvin, a four-year varsity player with a penchant for leadership, is a primary reason for that. 

Jim Ned (34-3), which will take on Shallowater (35-2) in a regional semifinal slated for 7:30 p.m., will lean on Galvin to not only direct the offense, but to help keep the team poised in what is almost certain to be a raucous and difficult environment. 

The Lady Indians won’t be alone in this challenge. In fact, all four qualifiers in this week’s event at Wayland Baptist University, which includes Brock (30-7) and Idalou (31-7), are known for having high-quality backcourts.

GAME STORY: Stamford girls advance to first regional tournament

Describing how she felt was hard for Stamford girls basketball coach Missy Dutchover on Tuesday night after her squad earned its first ever regional tournament berth with a 49-39 win over Albany at Hardin-Simmons University’s Mabee Complex.

“It’s a little surreal right now,” Dutchover said. “I’m really proud of my kids. We talked really big about taking advantage of your opportunities because you don’t know when you’re going to get them again.”

Sophomore guard Tylee Jo Bevel had a game-high 16 points for the Lady Bulldogs and was equally speechless as Stamford gets ready to face No. 3 Gruver in Friday’s Region I-2A semifinals at 8 p.m. at South Plains College in Levelland.

GAME STORY: Haskell overcomes 20-plus turnovers to eliminate Christoval, advance to regional

COLORADO CITY — When one pressure basketball team meets another, something chaotic can often emerge. And in the case of Haskell’s 60-46 win over Christoval, there was scarcely enough time for either side to think things through. 

So frenetic was Tuesday’s Region I-2A quarterfinal, that the Maidens survived more than 20 turnovers and a huge mid-game rally by Christoval to win by double-digits.

Landry Hanson scored 25 points, including a 12-of-17 effort from the free-throw line and Delaney Hanson added 10 more to lead eighth-ranked Haskell (31-3) which now advances to face 10th-ranked Panhandle (30-5) in the regional semifinals.

Christoval was led by Allison Vaughn with 16 points and Kallie Montalvo with 10. The Lady Cougars closed their campaign at 23-11

EVAN REN: This week in Big Country girls basketball (Feb. 24-March 1)

We’re a week into postseason play and the fields have been narrowed to 32 teams statewide in each classification. 

Following the regional quarterfinals on Monday and Tuesday evening, we’ll be in the Texas equivalent to the Sweet 16, where regional titles will be decided in far-flung places all over the state.  

Let’s take a quick peek at what this week has to offer in the Big Country:

GAME STORY: Jim Ned girls pull away late for comfortable win over Childress

STAMFORD — After watching Childress trim a six-point halftime lead to one late in the third quarter, Jim Ned coach Hunter Cooley could feel the momentum shifting in Friday’s Region I-3A area-round matchup with the Lady Cats.

So he did what good coaches often do in that situation: called a timeout to settle things down and challenged his team to tighten things up.

That tactic clearly worked as the No. 2 Lady Indians scored the next 10 points as part of an 18-7 game-ending run to secure a 46-34 win and earn a Region I-3A quarterfinal date with Bowie at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Cisco.

GAME STORY: Brock defense keys area round win over stubborn Eastland

STEPHENVILLE — As many playoff games do, Friday’s Class 3A area round matchup between Eastland and perennial power Brock came down to defensive stops and which team could produce the most of them. 

Brock, which has made a living on solid defense for years, gained the upper hand on that side of the court and advanced with a 52-40 win at Stephenville High School. 

Olivia Lewis tossed in 14 points and Torrye Tyler added 13 more to lead Brock (29-7), which will face Nocona (20-8) in the Region I quarterfinals next week. 

Eastland, which stubbornly remained within striking distance throughout the evening, was led by Macy McGaha with 13 points and Hannah Jordan with 12. The Lady Mavericks closed the season at 23-13.

FEATURE: Brock’s Tyler a junior to be reckoned with

BROCK — She’s only 17. She’s only a 5-foot-7 junior. And she’s been tasked with leading one of the top girls basketball programs in the state through what other schools may have called a “rebuilding” year. 

Yet heading into Friday’s Region I-3A area-round game with Eastland, Brock’s Torrye Tyler has produced some of the best all-around numbers of any player in the Big Country Preps coverage area. 

A 19.9-point scoring average (ranked second by Big Country Preps), combined with 3.7 assists (seventh by BCP) and 3.1 steals (21st) bear witness to how impactful she has been in a 28-7 Brock campaign that has seen this perennial power continue to roll.

GAME RECAP: Wylie girls see season end at hands of No. 1 Amarillo High

The Wylie girls basketball team saw its season come to an end Monday with a 72-39 loss to top-ranked Amarillo High in a Region I-5A bi-district matchup at Lubbock Christian University’s Rip Griffin Center.

The Lady Sandies raced out to a 20-12 lead after a quarter and buckled down defensively over the middle two periods to increase their advantage to 39 points (63-24) by the start of the fourth quarter.

The win improved Amarillo High’s record to 33-2, while Wylie closed its campaign at 18-17.

GAME STORY: Westbrook girls withstand cold quarter to knock off Hamlin

MERKEL — The Westbrook girls basketball team might have earned a bi-district win in 2019, but this postseason they plan to enjoy everything a little bit differently.

After picking up a 51-42 win over Hamlin in a Region II-1A bi-district game at Merkel’s Badger Gymnasium, coach Jeff Bontrager gave simple instructions to his squad on how to properly cut down the nets from the rim.

“We won last year in bi-district, but we didn’t do this,” Bontrager said of cutting down the nets. “We are going to celebrate everything, every victory, especially in the playoffs. Some teams might wait a little longer, but we are going to show them how fun it can be and hopefully put a run together.”

GAME STORY: Merkel defense shines in 42-16 bi-district win over Bangs

It took the Merkel girls basketball team a little time to get going offensively in its playoff opener against Bangs on Monday, but a stifling defensive performance made that point moot in a 42-16 victory at McMurry University’s Kimbrell Arena.

The Lady Badgers, the District 5-3A runner-up behind No. 2 Jim Ned, held Bangs to six first-half points and used a 16-4 run through the third quarter to put the Lady Dragons away and earn an area-round date with District 8-3A champion Nocona.

Senior guard Kaydi Pursley led the Merkel effort with 14 points, all after the first quarter, while sophomore Alyssa O’Malley added 12 to help the Lady Badgers move to 26-8 on the year.

GAME STORY: Cisco withstands Coahoma rally, foul trouble to advance

MERKEL — The Cisco girls basketball team started off on fire from the field, saw Coahoma put together a second-quarter rally and then hit a barrage of fourth-quarter free throws to earn a 68-56 Region I-3A bi-district win Monday night at Merkel’s Badger Gymnasium.

Landry Edgar led three Lady Loboes in double-digits with 20 points, while Sophie Hurtado had 16 points before fouling out and Savannah Dycus added 10.

Makynlee Overton had a game-high 24 points for the Bulldogettes, while Caitlyn Corley, the subject of a weekend feature, added 16 points.

GAME STORY: Lady Mavericks use defense to eliminate C-City, advance to area round

CLYDE— The most painful loss of the year is often the last one. And in Monday’s Class 3A bi-district matchup between Eastland and Colorado City, it was the C-City locker room that had a somber tone in the game’s aftermath. 

Backed by intense half-court defensive pressure that limited C-City standout Mia Monroe to just four points, the Lady Mavericks advanced with a 45-33 win at Clyde High School. 

Makena Moreno score 11 points and Jordan Mayes added eight more to lead Eastland (23-12), which held the Lady Wolves to just nine points after halftime. The Lady Mavericks now advance to face the winner of Tuesday’s bi-district matchup between Brock (27-7) and Holliday (18-13) in the area round. 

Colorado City (23-9) was led by Kaci Hudson with 12 points and Kirsten Koch with eight. 

“We started off playing a little zone and then we started playing some man (to man),” Eastland coach Troy Doyle said. “In the second half, we ran a little half-court trap and that gave them some problems.”

BIG COUNTRY PREPS PLAYER OF THE WEEK Brownwood’s McCarty earns this week’s top spot

He might be better known as a football player. 

But Baylor-bound defensive back Adonis McCarty Jr. is more than capable of lighting things up on the hardcourt as well. Just ask Glen Rose and Mineral Wells, both of which were torched by the BHS senior last week. 

Averaging 25.5 points and 7.5 rebounds through two games, McCarty helped Brownwood clinch the district title with a 33-point, eight-rebound, five-assist performance in a 71-67 win over Glen Rose.

FEATURE: Thompson a welcome addition to Brownwood girls’ basketball

A family situation brought unknown girls’ basketball talent Matyha Thompson from Nacogdoches to Brownwood prior to the 2018-2019 season. With the 2019-2020 season entering the playoffs this week, Thompson has worked her way onto a short list of the top players in the Big Country.

The 5-foot-10 senior leads the Lady Lions in scoring at 18.8 points per game, rebounding at 5.5 per game, steals with 67 for the season, blocked shots with 27 and field-goal shooting at 49 percent.

Brownwood, 19-12 and the runner-up in District 7-4A, will play Decatur, 27-6 and the No. 3 seed from District 8-4A, in a bidistrict game at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Breckenridge.

EVAN REN: This week in Big Country girls basketball (Feb. 17-23)

The first round of the playoffs are here, with a slate of 14 area games on Monday night and 15 on Tuesday. 

By Friday the field will be cut in half throughout most brackets and by this time next week, we’ll be looking at regional quarterfinal matchups to determine who’s going to the regional tournaments.

FEATURE: Coahoma’s Caitlyn Corley works her way to collegiate ranks while helping CHS to playoffs

Photos courtesy of Lyndal Moody

COAHOMA — Now in her senior year at Coahoma, Caitlyn Corley is one of the most unlikely stories in the Big Country for 2020. 

While gradually working her way to a position of prominence from her freshmen year to today in a struggling basketball program, Corley had two big goals to reach before someone handed her a diploma. First, she wanted to help Coahoma snap a playoff drought that dated back to 2016. Secondly, she wanted a collegiate program to take notice of her and allow her to play at the next level. 

Both missions have been accomplished. 

Not only is Coahoma (21-10) set to play Cisco (26-6) in a Class 3A bi-district matchup on Monday, but Corley has also been spotted on the collegiate radar screen. Having officially committed to Sul Ross State, the 18-year-old will join the SRSU basketball program later this year.

FEATURE: Moguls, Mogulettes on a roll after sluggish starts

PHOTOS courtesy of Mandi Perry

Munday’s two head basketball coaches never had doubts despite rocky starts.

First-year girls coach Richard Ramsey didn’t panic during a slow debut because he knew learning his system would be a process with point guard Carlie Willison injured and four new starters.

Boys coach Adrian Daniel knew a difficult football season wouldn’t necessarily translate to hardwood struggles either, not after the Moguls’ playoff success a year ago.

It’s a critical week for both squads as the girls will face either Highland or Roby after a first-round bye, while the boys host Knox City Tuesday night with an outright District 16-A title on the line.

The Mogulettes (20-13) already went undefeated in 16-A and ascended to No. 22 in the state after persevering through a rocky start. Since Wilson’s return from a fractured foot, Munday has won 17 of 19 games with its only losses coming to Guthrie and No. 15 Abbott.

FEATURE: Expectations sky high for Cooper freshman Speights

First-year Cooper girls basketball coach Arsenio Geter isn’t shy in his praise of point guard Kyla Speights. Nor is he particularly worried about overloading the freshman’s plate.

In fact, he’s already calling her the future of his program.

But Geter only puts those expectations — and the accompanying pressure — on Speights because he firmly believes she can handle it. And because he wants to make sure she understands the types of things she’s capable of and the enormous potential she has.

GAME STORY: Cooper girls stifle Wylie down stretch to take District 4-5A’s No. 3 seed

Leading Wylie 40-37 with 4½ minutes remaining Friday at Abilene High’s Eagle Gym, the Cooper girls basketball team kept the Lady Bulldogs off the board for the next four minutes to secure a 46-42 win and lock up the No. 3 seed out of District 4-5A.

The Lady Cougars, who shared the district title with Wylie, Aledo and Wichita Falls Rider, bounced back from a 32-24 loss to Aledo on the first day of a four-team seeding tournament Thursday to beat their crosstown rival a day later and avoid a first-round playoff matchup with top-ranked and defending state champion Amarillo High.

That burden will instead fall to the Lady Bulldogs, who dropped a 48-32 decision to Rider on Thursday.

GAME STORY: Wylie, Cooper girls fall to open District 4-5A seeding tournament

GRAHAM — It was a rough night for local teams on Day 1 of the District 4-5A girls basketball seeding tournament, and both Cooper and Wylie will have a Day 2 as a result.

Hoping to win their semifinal game to earn one of the district’s top-two playoff seeds and avoid having to play on Friday, the Lady Bulldogs dropped a 48-32 decision to Wichita Falls Rider in Thursday’s first game before the Lady Cougars fell 32-24 to Aledo in the nightcap.

Cooper and Wylie, which earned a four-way share of the district title with Rider and Aledo, will now meet at 5:30 p.m. Friday at Abilene High to decide who takes 4-5A’s No. 3 seed and avoids top-ranked Amarillo High in next week’s bi-district playoff. 

Aledo and Rider flipped for the No. 1 seed, with the former taking that distinction.

BCP Podcast No. 81: Evan, Daniel talk Ballinger boys hoops with coach Jamal Anene

In his four years as Ballinger’s boys basketball coach, Jamal Anene has built the Bearcats into a consistent playoff team. The same is true this year of BHS, which enters a big game Friday against San Angelo TLCA at 23-8 overall and 8-2 in District 4-3A.

Earlier this week, Anene took a few minutes to chat with Big Country Preps’ Evan Ren and Daniel Youngblood about this season, his goals for the program and his unique background for the Capital Farm Credit Wednesday Night Podcast.

Also in this episode, Evan and Daniel discuss the end of the girls basketball regular season and some of the biggest storylines in the final week of boys district games.

FEATURE: Haskell Maidens say goodbye to Teepee; boys to follow next week

HASKELL — Since 1956, the Haskell boys and girls basketball teams have been housed in what has often been described as the noisiest venue in the entire Big Country. 

Known unofficially in some circles as “The Teepee,” the Haskell gym, with its angled walls at the baseline and pitched roof, does bear some resemblance to the conical tents once used by Native American tribes of the Great Plains.

The sound inside, however, is closer to that of a 747 at takeoff than a powwow. 

Those days are rapidly coming to a close and by next week, the facility will have hosted its last varsity game.

LOCAL HOOPS ROUNDUP: Wylie girls rout Wichita Falls High, Bulldogs drop close one

The Wylie girls basketball team wrapped up the regular season with a dominant performance Tuesday at Bulldog Gym, blasting Wichita Falls High 57-27 to improve to 18-14 overall and 5-3 in District 4-5A play.

The victory, combined with Aledo’s 41-36 win over Wichita Falls Rider on Tuesday, put the Lady Bulldogs in a four-way tie for first in the 4-5A standings with Aledo, Rider and Cooper. Those four teams will play a seeding tournament later this week at site to be determined.
