The Clark Cougars boys basketball team won their eighth consecutive game taking the sting out of the East Central Hornets by a score of 78-63.  The win came in the first round of this weekend’s SAISD tournament.

In the first quarter the teams went back and forth.  As the clock ran down to what looked like to be a even quarter, senior Sam Perez hit a buzzer beating 3 pointer to give the Cougars a 19-16 lead at the end of one.  The Cougars pulled away in the second and at the half, it was Cougars 43, Hornets 32.

The Cougars started with the ball in the 2nd half and quickly scored on a give and go eliciting a rapid response from the East Central coach and a time out.  The damage had already been done, however, as the Hornets could not adjust to the Cougars quick offense and smothering defense.  A couple of errant passes by the Cougars kept the Hornets from being blown out and the third quarter ended with Clark up by 16, 58-42.

The fourth was more of the same as Clark built it’s lead helped by a foul and technical on the Hornets.  Jason Brickman sunk all four free throws and the Cougars advanced in the winner’s bracket with a solid 78-63 win over East Central.  The Cougars will continue their quest for a second tournament championship tomorrow with second round actrion today at 6:00pm at the Alamo Convocation Center (Alamo Stadium).

Good job, Cougars!
