FLORESVILLE -- The Jaguar Classic is always one of the best girls basketball tournaments around, and this year was no different, as 20 teams from across the region gathered at Floresville High School for a three-day tournament.

Teams from San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and everywhere in between converged on Floresville last Thursday, as the tournament got under way with a trio of games, filling three of the school’s gyms simultaneously. In the game gym, Floresville was busy taking on Burbank, as San Antonio Christian battled Hondo, and Lanier took on Incarnate Word in the practice gyms.

Floresville picked up a convincing 71-36 win over the Lady Bulldogs, moving them on in the winners bracket. The Jaguars then faced Hondo, fresh off the Owls’ 63-34 win over San Antonio Christian. Hondo made things close with Floresville, but the Jags held on for a 55-43 victory.

The winning streak came to an end in the third round of play, though, as Brandeis knocked off Floresville, 61-47. That loss moved the Jags to the third-place game, as they awaited their opponent. Brandeis, meanwhile, went on to beat Brackenridge 46-31 en route to the tournament championship.

Two additional local teams playing in the tournament were the Poth Pirettes and the East Central Lady Hornets. Poth ran away with a huge 85-18 win over Holy Cross to start their tournament play, but then lost in a close game to Marshall, 59-56. The Pirettes went on to win out from there, however, picking up a 69-34 win over Lanier, and a 61-34 win over Sam Houston.

East Central defeated Corpus Christi Miller by the score of 66-44 to start things off, and then knocked off Peaster to advance in the bracket. The Lady Hornets fell to Brackenridge by the score of 62-53, putting the team into the third-place game with Floresville.

East Central came out strong during the third-place contest and held an 18-7 advantage after the first period of play. The Jags made a strong second-period effort, though, outscoring East Central 15-11, and narrowing the gap at the half, though the Lady Hornets still led, 29-22.

The two teams played tight in the third and fourth periods, but East Central held on for the win, 68-56.

The win gave East Central a third-place finish behind Brandeis and Brackenridge, and Floresville finished fourth. Over in the consolation bracket, Madison eventually won out after dropping their round-one game with Brackenridge.
