Cy-Fair looks to dam up upset hopeful Creek
By TODD HVEEM
The Cy Creek Cougars might be the most overlooked team in the District 15-5A boys' basketball race.
But that could change on Friday night.
The Cougars, who dropped their district opener to Cy Ridge 54-50, will travel to meet Cy-Fair at 7 p.m. Friday.
A Cy Creek win could give it a leg up on the Bobcats in the race for the Class 5A state playoffs.
The Cougars have opened the year by winning 10 of their first 15 games, but all the talk still surrounds Cy Woods, Langham Creek and Cy Falls.
Cy-Fair, meanwhile, opened district play with an easy win over Jersey Village to improve to 13-4 on the season.
ABOUT THE GAME
Matchup: Cy Creek vs. Cy-Fair
When: 7 p.m. Friday
Where: Cy-Fair High School
At stake: Another district victory. League wins are becoming crucial as the season winds down.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Cy Creek: Rashaun Riley (16.4 points per game); Robert Goffney (13.8 ppg); Cameron Fleming (11.3 ppg).
Cy-Fair: Chris McDermott (16.6 points per game); Lawrence Paye (14.8 ppg); Chase Brogna (14.2 ppg).
Cy Creek: The Cougars own big victories over Nimitz, Klein, Tomball and Brazoswood in the first two months of the season. But, after opening district play with a 54-50 loss to Cy Ridge, they now find themselves in a must-win situation to keep pace in the District 15-5A race.
Cy-Fair: The Bobcats continued to be the surprise team in the Houston area after opening District 15-5A play with an easy 66-49 victory over Jersey Village. Cy-Fair won the consolation championship at the Conroe Christmas Classic and finished second in the Cy-Fair ISD tournament. They own victories over Langham Creek, Klein Forest, Brazosport and Tomball.
