With a consolation championship under its belt after an impressive 3-1 performance in the Prosper ISD Boys Basketball Classic last weekend, the boys basketball team (6-2) will travel to compete in the Great East Texas Shootout in Brownsboro today, where they will play start by playing Marshall at 6:40 p.m.

Senior Kyle Olson said he is confident in his team’s ability going into the tournament, regardless of the performance in the last tournament.

“It’s not so much the award [that matters], I just feel like we’re just playing some really good ball right now,” Olson said. “We’re all pretty confident in what we’re doing and we’re all fitting into our roles really well.”

The team faced the Little Elm Lobos (7-5), who, at the time, were the #4 team in Class 5A (now #14). The Leopards fell 47-43, in what became a one possession game as time expired. They went on to go 3-0 throughout the rest of the tournament, racking up wins versus Flower Mound Marcus (51-37), Frisco (39-36), and Lake Highlands (53-43).

“We definitely won’t be playing teams as good as Little Elm every single game, but I do think there was a mindset change [after the first game],” Olson said. “We learned we can pretty much compete with any team in the state.”
