Ladycat Playoff Basketball Bracketology

February 17, 2011 by Steve Keck

Anything can happen in the playoffs. Just ask the Brenham Cubs in the 2010 football season. They were the highest ranked team behind Aledo in Class 4A going into the football playoffs. They lost in bi-district.

With four teams making the playoffs in each district, the Texas UIL divides the 164 teams making the playoffs into four Regions. Aledo is in Region I. Within the 32 teams in Region I, the teams are divided into a bracket with the top half containing 16 teams and the bottom half having 16 teams. The winner of the top half plays the winner of the bottom half for the right to represent their region at the State Basketball Tournament in Austin on March 3 and 4.

Ladycats pull off dramatic comeback to beat Dunbar 58-54 - UPDATED

February 15, 2011 by Steve Keck

ESPN would call this game an “Instant Classic”. Aledo and Ft. Worth Dunbar are two of the best Class 4A teams in North Texas. Both teams slugged it out in a physical game played at Saginaw High School Tuesday night. Aledo was the last team standing in a dramatic 58-54 come-from-behind victory.

Things looked bleak for Aledo when Destiny Price hit a three for the Lady Wildcats to put Dunbar up by nine 52-43 with only 4:25 left to play in the game.

Senior Logan Mittie went to work in the fourth quarter scoring 11 points on one three-pointer and eight for eight free throw shooting in crunch time. Mittie led all scorers with 26. Mallory Powell added 13 and Alana Martin 10.

Bearcats Fall In Final Home Game

February 14, 2011 by Steve Keck

The Aledo Bearcats finished up the 2010-2011 basketball with a home loss to the Brewer Bears 49-37. Aledo dug a deep hole in the first half. The only Bearcat points in the first quarter came from a Taylor Johnson three-pointer. Johnson, a freshman, finished the night leading the team with 11 points.

The second quarter saw Aledo score only nine points. The only other Bearcats scoring in the first half besides Johnson were Pierce Gentry with two and a basket by Todd Christian. On a night when Aledo honored the seniors, they were shut out in the first half. The Bearcats went into halftime down by 18, 30-12.

Heartbreaking Loss Dims Bearcat Playoff Hopes

February 12, 2011 by Steve Keck

Bearcats 51 Birdville 55

Coming into Friday night’s contest against the Birdville Hawks, Aledo was tied for third place in the district. A win by the Bearcats would have given the Bearcats the tie-breaker edge over Birdville for a playoff spot. The Hawks took advantage of their home court to win 55-51 and just about eliminate Aledo from the playoffs.

Aledo fell behind early as Birdville made five three-pointers and led by ten after the first quarter. The Aledo defense kicked in and only allowed the Hawks 14 points in the second and third quarters. On the offensive end, Danny Glass was on fire all night finishing with 21 points.

The Ladycats were struggling offensively at the beginning of the game. Alana Martin stole the ball and made a lay-up to put Aledo up by four with 4:35 to play in the first quarter. The basket started a 13-0 run buy the Ladycats and they never looked back. Logan Mittie led all scorers with 22 and Mallory Powell added 20.
