The Jerabeck Center of the University of St. Thomas is the House of Champions. The Celts are looking to claim the SCAC Conference title straight away with a win over Colorado College. After a somewhat underwhelming first half, UST took control in the second half after Joshua Sanchez scored 3 straight shots into the basket. He finished with a game high of 15. Then the locals, namely Cy-Fair ISD took over. Cy-Springs Freddie Ricks with a jump, Cy-Fair’s Cameron Gims with 3 of his 14 and state champion from Cy-Falls Andrew Nguyen gave the Celts a 10-point lead and never looked again.
It feels great. Long time no see. I’m very happy to be home,” Nguyen said.
Hightower’s Christian Alaekwe said: “At this point, I’m used to it.”
