It started ugly and during one spurt in the third quarter New Braunfels head coach Cliff Wilkins couldnt watch any more so he went for some the Unicorns ripped off a 192 run to start the decisive fourth quarter for a 6750 victory over Kerrville Tivy Friday The win pushes New Braunfels record to 16 3 and 30 in District 284A The night looked like it would be a long one for the Unicorns in the first as they opened the game shooting 1 of 12 from the missing the first eight They finished the opening quarter 6 of 21 28 yet held a 1411 advantage with some tenacious defense and strong Junior guard Jessie Morales grabbed an offensive rebound and in one swift motion laid the ball in as time expired in the first New Braunfels bench sparked the team throughout the game with 27 including 10 from 6foot1 junior Albert Muniz was spelling starter Randy Darnell and scored six quick points in the first quarter to break the shooting Muniz said he likes giving who led the Unicorns with 16 his Every time I come in I just want to do real good and help off the Muniz Dawg Darnell has been playing great this whole season and I just want to come in and give him a little bit of I come take his place while hes out and he comes back in and tears it Muniz said it good for the team to win one going away after two consecutive close district This was a good one because we just finished playing Canyon and Smithson Valley barely coming out of those he Its a good for us to win by more thana couple of It was a real good New Braunfels opened up a nine point at halftime but could not shake the pesky Antlers Overall scored nine in the quarter and Muniz appeared to extend his arm a couple of inches to tip in an offensive Then came the near disastrous run in the third period when the Unicorns could not get the halfcourt offense Tivy turned a couple of turnovers into easy points to narrow the lead to 3937 with about left in the New Braunfels went almost five minutes without a field scoring six points on free throws to maintain its By the end of the quarter the Unicorns held a slim sixpoint lead at Over the next New Braunfels outscored the Antlers 192 with some amazing John Drury had Shae Wilkins had two and Overall had perhaps his best all He was cut off on the left side of the goal and appeared to be taking the ball back to the middle of the court when he whipped a nolook pass to who went right by a befuddled defender for an easy Darnell put back an offensive rebound on the next possession for a 6542 lead to end the Wilkins said different aspects of the team really pulled together for the but added that the team will need to play better to be successful over the next four district I think the job we did on the on the offensive and defensive backboards enabled us to stay in the ballgame until we made our run in the fourth Wilkins I know we were stagnant a lot of times offensively but I think a lot of that was because the ball just wouldnt go in the I know well have to shoot the ball and play a lot better offensively in the next week and a half as we start our stretch run here down the first Weve got finals sandwiched in there as so weve got to be mentally tough to keep our Wilkins said his bench gives him the opportunity to find the right mix of players during a game and that will help over this next stretch of I think were ready for the he I do not think that were playing as well as we were a week before we took off for the but weve been fortunate because weve had people step up and play good It seems like myself and our coaches have struggled a little bit to find the right combination in there and its taking us a Weve been fortunate because our bench is so weve been able to sub in and out for people who are not having a good period of We have the luxury of at least being able to experiment and get the right combination in Weve got a lot of guys that can do certain things well and some other things not so well it just takes some time to find the right New Braunfels travels to Uvalde for a rare Monday night The school starts its finals on Wednesday and UIL rules prohibit players from playing the day before There will be three finals on Thursday and two more on when the Unicorns host Alamo which beat Canyon 7038 Friday Two notes of interest from the games First was the collective look of surprise on everyones face as who is known for his tough inside play and not his free throw sank both shots on his only trip to the The other was the first action of the year for senior Randy who suffered an ankle injury at the start of
