High School Boys Basketball: Rattlers can't keep pace with district-leading Bowie

AUSTIN — San Marcos just came up short. 

The Rattlers had their opportunities to defeat District 14-6A co-leader Austin Bowie on the road. But San Marcos committed turnovers, received two technical fouls and missed free throws. Even so, the Rattlers had the ball in their hands for the final shots in regulation. The jumper from senior forward Micah Williamson, however, fell short and the put-back attempt from senior guard Luis Hernandez clanked off the rim.

High School Boys Soccer: San Marcos, Seguin battle to competitive draw

SEGUIN — Despite having most of the possession and shots attempts, San Marcos settled for a stalemate.

After Seguin’s Brandon Gallegos nabbed a surprising opening goal two minutes into the match, the Rattlers were quickly on their heels. Rather than panicking and playing the long-ball in attempt to match their rivals’ opening score, San Marcos stuck to its game plan.

The Matadors played a high back line that compressed the game when they had possession.

At any given moment, senior guard Ojai Black is likely on his phone.

During an interview inside the conference room of Texas State’s athletics office, the senior guard is itching to look at his phone, but resists.

“Honestly right now, it’s killing me not to check my phone,” Black laughs. “I don’t know why I can’t put it down. I love to just find and figure out new things, discover new things. I love to just know what’s going on in the world at the time.”

Texas State was hit with a one-two punch during the first half and Jay Wright delivered the knockout late.

UL Lafayette opened a 14-point advantage near the end of the opening half forcing the Bobcats to play catch-up, a game they can’t win if their defense isn’t clicking. The Ragin’ Cajuns snapped a two-game conference losing streak during Saturday night’s 79-73 win inside Strahan Coliseum.

High School Boys Basketball: Rattlers keeping championship mindset

San Marcos’ mantra is ‘to be champions, you have to practice like champions.’

So, on Monday following a surprising district-opening loss to Manor, San Marcos head coach David Norris sent his Rattlers packing after a lackluster start to practice. 

“I think we just came out a little sloppy,” senior Micah Williamson said. “We weren’t really going full speed. Monday, we had off. We didn’t have school. So, we were out of it. We didn’t feel like going hard and then (Norris) called it off early.”
