Game 4: Cedar Park 68 - Clear Lake 61
There was a 3 way tie in the pool Lake was in (Pool A). In the head-to-head tie breaker, Lake was 2nd. Lake Highlands was first, and Vandergrift was 3rd. So Lake played the 2nd place team from Pool B, Cedar Park. Lake players were tired, shot the ball poorly and could barely spell Free Throw. Lake was 15 of 26 from the line (14 attempts by John Argue). It is difficult to win when 11 free throws are missed no matter how hard the team plays.
There were 5 good teams out of 8 total in this tournament. Lake got 4th place. Lake Highlands (which Lake defeated) played in the championship game but were outclassed noticeably by Austin Westside HS.
Lake loses the first game in district play.
Casey Davis 14, Jake Mather 13, John Argue 11, JaJa Sanni 11, Caleb Wright 9

Casey 14, Jake 11, John 11. Lake had 23 turnovers in this outing and still won. HC was a strong defensive team. There were more fouls that should have been called but were not than in any game I can remember for quite sometime.
