semiannual boys basketball wingding and the words to the wise are from an old country favorite New Braunfels has already clinched the district The Unicorns dont have a lot of right What good is it going to do the Unicorns to win a game that against any other team in any other year would be no more than a leftover And then theres with all David King the motivation in the Its a chance to play for a playoff Its a way to salvage a season in which the Cougars were picked to win the a season that is going down the drain with a flood of fouls and more than a trickle of bad The Cougars have everything to play the Unicorns if right think This is New Braunfels wintertime rivals way back before either team was a playoff Something about blue brings out the ornery in Canyon the Unicorns see red when the Cougars come out on the The closecorners gyms are always full of vocal No matter the there are no lackadasical NBCanyon But what other motivations do the Unicorns have Ask Cliff who has
