Bowie pounces early on Roos

Staff Report

Led by three scorers in double digits, Arlington Bowie ran rampant through three quarters on Tuesday, swamping the Weatherford Kangaroos in a District 3-5A contest, 62-39.

Sam Couch led the Roos with 11 points, and while six other Weatherford players got into the scoring column, there was too little firepower and too much Bowie offense to stay abreast of the Volunteers.

Weatherford returns to Roo gymnasium on Friday, hoping to collect its first district win against Arlington Martin. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m.


Dry, Ladycats shut down Wyatt

Staff Report

Aledo’s Alyssa Dry, fresh off of a tournament MVP award at Granbury over the weekend, still has a hot hand, scoring 21 points in the Ladycats’ 59-23 win over Fort Worth’s OD Wyatt on Tuesday.

The visiting Ladycats’ defense stymied the Lady Chaps, allowing just three points in the second quarter and blanking the home team in the fourth.

Justis Sczcepanski-Beavers added 12 points, while Kaylee Black and Megan Wood had seven and six points, respectively.


Saban: ‘There were no talks’ with Texas 

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama coach Nick Saban and the football team are moving on. Saban has put to rest the speculation that he would replace Mack Brown at Texas by striking a new deal with Alabama.

For the third-ranked Crimson Tide, the focus is on getting over the loss to Auburn and trying to finish the season strong in the Jan. 2 Sugar Bowl against No. 11 Oklahoma.

Saban had said Friday night after agreeing to a new contract reportedly worth about $7 million a year that he planned to retire at Alabama.

He said “there were no talks” between his representatives and Texas and pointed to comments on ESPN that he “never considered going to Texas.”

Mack Brown announced his resignation at Texas on Saturday.
