BATTLE of TOP 10 TEAMS
Lancaster HS, ranked #7 in the state of Texas in Class 4A by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches, played 5th ranked Dallas Kimball at Ellis Davis Field House. Lancaster came out strong in the 1st quarter and took a 16-12 lead. Kimball answered the 2nd quarter bell with a 21 point outburst to tie the game up at 33-33 at half. Lancaster’s bigs got into foul trouble in the 3rd quarter and Kimball took advantage and increased its lead by 8 points going into the 4th quarter, 50-42. This set the stage for a furious rally by Lancaster in the 4th.

West Coast Super Showcase Top 20 Rankings
www.westcoastsupershowcase.com for more information on upcoming events in California.
We evaluated all the sessions of the West Coast Super Showcase at Clovis East (Clovis, Calif.) and broke down our notes and reports to rank the top twenty players in attendance.
The following rankings are based on evaluations from all the sessions of the one-day event. The rankings are based on performance at the camp only, not on performance combined with previous honors, national or state ranking. Some players did not play in every session of the camp and in some instances, but not all, that changed that particular player’s ranking. Keep in mind the guards tend to dominate showcase settings such as the West Coast Super Showcase, but plenty of four-men displayed solid ability.
