HS Basketball Scoreboard: Conroe and The Woodlands continue race for playoff spot
THE WOODLANDS, TX --
Conroe 69, College Park 63
The Tigers needed a win to keep pace with The Woodlands for the fourth and final playoff spot in District 15-6A. On Senior Night, led by senior Michael Phoenix’s 24 points, Conroe got the win they needed to keep their postseason hopes alive. Next Game: @ Klein Oak - 2/18
College Park, the current two-seed, failed to take advantage of Klein’s loss. A win in their season finale on Tuesday could’ve potentially earned the Cavaliers a share of the district title if Klein lost again. Now CP will need a win to make sure they hold on to that second-place spot. Next Game: vs The Woodlands - 2/18
The Woodlands 64, Oak Ridge 63
Oak Ridge has been playing good basketball as of late. A week ago, the War Eagles pushed Klein to the limit. Friday night, behind Marco Limon’s 28 points, they nearly played the spoiler role on the road at The Woodlands. Next Game: vs Klein Collins - 2/18
The Highlanders weren’t having it, however. Brock Luechtefeld scored a team-high 18 points and much like Conroe, The Woodlands seniors stepped up on Senior Night. Senior Andres Pallares caught an inbound lob and scored the game-winning layup with seconds remaining to avoid an ill-timed loss. Next Game: @ College Park - 2/18
