A match up between “top teams” #25 Texas/#5 Express News Clark Cougars varsity basketball team and #6 Express News brandees (or Brandeis if you want to get technical…) turned more into an exhibition and a great practice for the Cougars as Clark easily defeated the my little ponies (or Broncos) 62-38 at Paul Taylor. Clark displayed “top team” form, not so much for the burros, er, broncos.
The Express News boxscore shows that every Cougar on the roster put points on the board during the game. The Cougars outscored the ponies by 10-4-3 and 7 points each quarter and the defense did not allow brandees to score more thn 10 points in any quarter.
The Cougars now own a 12-4 overall record and a 1-0 district tally. The Cougars play again this Saturday.

The Crusaders (1-0) won the National Christian School Athletic Association Division 1A championship in April with an 81-56 win over Team FCA from Pennsylvania. Despite that success, the Crusaders still feel like they have something to prove. Durant said he and his teammates were motivated after being left out of ESPN’s Preseason Powerade Fab 50 rankings, which feature No. 3 Oak Hill Academy, No. 4 Montrose Christian, No. 13 DeMatha Catholic, No. 19 Gonzaga and No. 45 John Carroll.
“We should be ranked, like, Top 10 this year,” Durant said. “We’re all seniors and we know how to play the game. We’ve seen the rankings on ESPN, and we’re trying to kill everybody; we’re coming.”
Not so fast was the message from Clark. Adam Perez had 16 points in the win and solid team play and another great defensive showing gave the Cougars the win.
Up next is Churchill at Churchill this morning.
