SAN ANTONIO -- They were the last area team left in the playoffs, but after falling to Madison last Tuesday evening in the region quarterfinals, the season is over for the East Central Hornet basketball team.

The Hornets got off to a good start in the first period, but so did the Mavericks. The teams traded points back and forth, but when the buzzer sounded the end of the period, it was Madison with a slight lead at 18-15. The teams each posted 9 points during the second eight minutes of play, and the Mavs took a 27-24 lead into halftime.

The pace quickened in the third period, and the Hornets tossed in 17 points. The Mavericks kept pace, though, scoring 16. With just one period left to play, it was a 2-point game and everyone knew it would come down to the wire.

Unfortunately for East Central, the Mavericks put together their best scoring effort of the night during the fourth period, scoring 21 points, and securing a 64-58 win over the Hornets. The loss ended the season for East Central, as Madison moved on to the Region IV tournament.

Brandon McClure led the Hornets in scoring with 14 points, followed by Ceddrick Ali with 13 points. Jeremy Jones and Albert Jimenez each dropped in another 10. Brandon Keno scored 5 points, Ethan White tossed in 4 points, and Wanya Ward scored another 2.

The Hornets end their 2013-14 campaign with an overall record of 25-9, and the team was 9-1 through district play to grab the 28-5A title. East Central won a bi-district playoff and area championship.
