So it's back to Moody Coliseum for the regional final as Water Valley takes on Throckmorton for a chance to play in the state tournament in Austin. I had a good feeling about this game as I walked into the coliseum because I had a chance to see a little bit of Throckmorton play the day before. They were not as fast as Crowell, they didn't shoot better than Crowell and they certainly didn't play defense like Crowell. Water Valley was going to walk all over them.
To save you readers out there a little bit of time I'll be brief in the matters of game statistics and highlights. Lets just say that Water Valley came out and dominated from the very start. The Wildcats dropped five 3-pointers in the first quarter en route to a 33-24 cushion at the half. The Wildcats went on a 7-0 run in the third quarter to go up 40-24 and led by as much as 24 in the fourth. As you've probably guessed, Water Valley won convincingly with a 62-43 win. I'm very excited to be heading back to Austin with a local team to cover. See you in Austin!
