The North Texas Cowboys were in action again the weekend of February 17-19 in Irving Texas. Although we did not show as well in our home tournament as we would have liked we did get valuable court time against quality teams. We ended the weekend with 1 win and 4 loses, which is not close to the goals we had set for ourselves. As a team we were disappointed with our performance but we also know that we got better from the experience. Three of our players won individual honors by making the all tournament team. Matt Reynolds won best .5(that’s two in a row), Shane Crider won best 3.0 and William Taylor won the sportsmanship award. Now it’s time to take the lessons we have learned this year and put them to use. We have our semi final tournament in March and need to put together a more consistent effort to advance to nationals. I would like to say a big THANK YOU to RISE, the RISE sponsors and the army of volunteers it took to make this tournament a success. Without all of you we could not do what we love to do. Thank you again for all of your support!
