Kim English had 16 points and reserve Michael Dixon 13 points for the Tigers (20-6,6-5 Big 12), who shot 58 percent but were tested in a run-and-gun contest that was light on defense before going to 16-0 at home. John Roberson had 21 points for Texas Tech (11-15,3-8), which shot 49 percent.

was the only way back," Ten-nell said. “(Medina Valley) did a great job shooting.”
With time winding down, the score began to slip away. The Lady Panthers led 47-41 after the third and jumped out to a 14-point lead early in the fourth.
Two rallies in the final frame saw Canyon come within single-digits, but the Cougarettes couldn’t regain the lead.
“I told them we need to be thinking about the positives of this year," Tennell said. “They finished with a win
ning record, and they placed second in a very tough district.”
Canyon is already looking to the future and the work ahead in the offseason.
“We’re going to do a lot of work on team building,” Turner said. “We will work on conditioning and our defense. Overall, we want to be more aggressive. We want to continue to get better and work hard.”
With only three players graduating, the Cougarettes will retain almost the same roster next season.
“Definitely, we are a contender,” Turner said. “We have a really good shot at winning the district.”SVHS

“We wanted to come out and be aggressive right from the start,” Hermesmeyer said. “We out our foot on the gas and didn’t let up until the final buzzer. That is the way we have to play in ever game, no matter who we are play-
Senior Danielle Blagg led the Lady Rangers (29-4) with 18 points, and Salmon added 12 to give Smithson Valley its first playoff win in eight years.
“I thought we played very efficiently and pushed the ball well,” Salmon said. “We know that there are no days off in the playoffs, and we played like we were playing for a state title tonight.
“We were really prepared and couldn’t wait to get on the court tonight.”
Smithson Valley, which won its first district tide since 1986 after an undefeated run in 27-4A, stormed out from the locker room to build an 18-5 lead after the first quar
ter, and extended that advantage to 31-8 at the half.
The Lady Rangers built that lead by going inside to Blagg, Ashley Bryand and Lauren Jay early before kicking the ball out to the outside shooters such as Salmon, who knocked down a pair of 3-pointers.
Salmon’s trick shot in the third ignited an 11-2 run that gave Smithson Valley a commanding 48-14 lead heading into the fourth, when Hermesmeyer emptied her bench for some much-needed playoff experience.
Interior defense was a key component for the Lady Rangers, as they stuffed the middle to force the Lady Antlers into a one-dimensional team.
Kerrville Tivy (11-23) was led by junior Jamie Jenschke with 8 points.
Jay and Bryand scored seven and six points, respectively, for the Lady Rangers.
Smithson Valley advances to play the winner of the Austin Travis/Marble Falls game. Time and place are to be determined.ROUNDUP

With the season over, the game marks the end the high school careers of what Hughey called “possibly the best group of seniors that’s ever come through New Braunfels.”
The coach said the Unicorns’ senior class — players such as Dirienzo, Knudson, Hewitt and Emily Fisher —
were instrumental in the Unicorns’ recent success.
“We’ve been to the playoffs three straight years with this group, and before the group got here, I think the team had won nine games," Hughey said. “In the last four years, this team has won close to 100 games. Obviously, they are really special to us.”VA Benefit Seminar at Kirkwood ManorThursday, February 24,2011 at 5:30 p.m.
