Bowie High School’s boys’ basketball team has had a longstanding tradition of competing in the Whataburger Tournament.
The Jackrabbits open tournament play today at 10 a.m. with a game against Liberty Hill in the blue boys’ division at Chisholm Trail High School in Fort Worth.
Liberty Hill had a successful run in this tournament last year – finishing as the runner-up to Abilene Wylie.
Bowie head coach Doug Boxell – who has taken the Jackrabbits to the Whataburger Tournament every single year since he took over the program – said Liberty Hill has plenty of height.
“They are hard to stop,” Boxell said. “They will run a 1-2-1-1 press the whole game.”
Liberty Hill is an Austin suburb with a basketball-first mentality. Still, Boxell said Bowie has a chance to compete with them.
“We have a chance to beat a really good team,” said Boxell with Jackrabbits fresh off a 68-50 district-opening victory over Nocona from Dec. 20.
Bowie stands at 7-8 overall coming into the event.
