The Bowie High School boys’ basketball team ended the 59th Annual Whataburger Tournament with a bang.
The Jackrabbits rallied from a 14-point deficit for a 58-54 victory over Brock in the consolation bracket.
“It was a big win for us,” Bowie head coach Doug Boxell said. “Brock has beaten us the last few years. From a mental standpoint, it was big to come back in the fourth quarter, and win a ball game like that.”
Boxell said Bowie employed a half-court trapping defense and was able to draw a couple of charging calls during that fourth-quarter rally.
Bowie was able to attack the basket, and draw Brock into committing fouls. The Jackrabbits finished the game going 21-of-27 from the free-throw line (78 percent). Read more, and see complete box scores, in the Jan. 4 Bowie News.
