Three area boys’ basketball teams enter the Alamodome this week two wins away from winning UIL state titles. Two return from last year’s tournament, while the third makes program history by simply stepping onto the pitch.
See the scores below, followed by a preview of each game.
CLASS 3A – COLE 53, HITCHCOCK 49
In their fourth consecutive appearance at the UIL State tournament, the Cole Cougars wasted no time in setting the tone. Seniors Silas Livingston and Trey Blackmore rode an impressive 16-0 run to open the game, and Dr. Ray dazzled with a emphatic slam dunk in the third quarter, as Cole beat Hitchcock 53-49 in the Class 3A semifinal on Friday afternoon. The Cougars next face Dallas Madison in the Class 3A State Championship Game Saturday at 10 a.m.

CLASS 4A – BOERNE (32-6) VS. WICHITA HIRSCHI FALLS (28-6)
Boerne wasn’t happy with last year’s run at the state tournament. The Greyhounds are back once again thanks to some late game drama in the Class 4A Regional Finals. Boerne beat Somerset for the second straight year – this time in extra time – to secure their second consecutive place in the last four.
Senior Devin Styles continued to lead the way on Boerne’s offense. In a season where he scored his 1,000th career point for the Greyhounds, Styles is averaging 19 points per game, more than double the next closest scorer on the active roster. Barrett Pape and Houston Hendrix add secondary options with 9.1 and 7.9 points per game, respectively. Their first opponent, Wichita Falls Hirschi, makes school history, gaining statehood for the first time since 1988.
Tipoff against the Huskies is scheduled for 3 p.m. Friday, and the winner will face Oak Cliff Faith Family Academy (34-4) or Silsbee (32-6) for the 4A title.
