Vipers fall to 1-2 after second straight home loss

Visibly frustrated, RGV Vipers head coach Mahmoud Abdelfattah yelled “no foul,” questioning why officials overturned a foul in favor of the Santa Cruz Warriors midway through the fourth quarter Tuesday night. “Come on! God Bless! Help a brother out!” Abdelfattah shouted. Help, he did not get. Soon after, the Warriors’ Jeremy Pargo drained another 3-pointer, extending Santa Cruz’s lead to seven points with 6:14 left in the game. Pargo went on to drain two more 3s, adding to his 32 points on the night, as the Warriors defeated the Vipers 122-112 to improve to 2-1 on the season. Read the full story at themonitor.com.

Mustangs muscle past Laredo Alexander

Seeking to hold off another late rally, McAllen Memorial senior middle blocker Demy Banks dropped into a crouch next to the net at midcourt. The Mustangs had been exchanging blows with the Bulldogs all night and the two teams found themselves locked in another bitter battle down the stretch of the fifth and final set. With the ball flying wildly across the gym, neither side appeared to be in good enough position to set up the crucial point. The Mustangs returned the ball over the net to their opponents who barely played it back over to Banks, who leaped and high pointed the ball hammering home the game-winning point to lift McAllen Memorial over Laredo Alexander 18-25, 25-18, 25-19, 16-25, 15-11 to keep its season alive and advance to the Sweet 16 on Tuesday night in Alice.
