Block Party is Successful, CLJV Win, 49-34

Canyon Lake JV basketball team swatted the Panthers around in their victory last Tuesday night in the Hawk gym.

Sophomore Skyler Tschoepthe Hawk gym.

“We have been on a skid the last seven games,” Coach Brian Hooper said. “Overall our press helped us in getting turnovers and got our offense going.”

Seven blocks recorded by five different players pretty much told Navarro that weak stuff was not going to be allowed as Canyon Lake controlled the boards with nine offensive rebounds and 37 total rebounds.

All but one player had at least one rebound and no player dominated the boards. A truly team effort as CLJV rushed out to a 10 point lead after that first quarter finishing with their 15 point margin of victory.

Sean Nolan was a recipient of a match-up offense as Navarro had no one who could body up to this 6’5 220lb mountain man underneath.

“We wanted to get Sean (Nolan) to work on finishing,” Coach Hooper said like a proud father.

In that final quarter Nolan’s longest shot was right under the rim, in fact all of his shots were right under the rim, hence only missing one shot for the game.

On having the offense isolating Nolan underneath in the fourth quarter Nolan commented, “Somewhat, because they (Navarro) don’t have any players my height and I was telling my teammates, Navarro had no one to match up with me,” Nolan said from his mountaintop.

Another moment to remember came on a block in that final quarter where Nolan could of easily been credited with two blocks on the same play as he grabbed the ball as the Navarro player was shooting and stuffed the ball right back down from where it came from.

Except this time the Panther shooter was on his duff trying to figure out what happened.

Skyler Tschoepe had one of his best all around games this season.

“Skyler played his butt off,” Coach Hooper said eloquently. “He is one of those hustle guys.”

Tschoepe had 10 points, five rebounds, four assists, four steals and some finishing touches recording two blocks.

Commenting on how he was able to intercept so many passes, “Anticipation, sometimes I’m wrong and I put my team in a bind,” Tschoepe started. “But making those plays will help and we can get the early points and open lane.”

Trendon Martinez finished with 13 points by driving to the basket and slashing through a Panther defense that was always one step behind.

“HIs (Martinez) penetration helped us,” Coach Hooper said in commenting on how well Martinez was driving to the basket. “He really got us going.”

Sophomore Sean Nolan

Of those 13 points scored by Martinez, eleven were scored in those first two quarters.

Austin Acosta showed his ability with hustle steals and three assists, playing hard throughout this contest.

One weakness was in the ball handling for CL as 32 turnovers would in many games spell doom for a basketball team.

But with 16 steals by this defense, helped cut those turnovers in half, and negated that one glaring flaw in this game.

The block party was a success and now Canyon Lake will entertain Fredericksburg this coming Friday and hopefully have a going away party for our Billies.

Bring some cake and cookies and hopefully witness another good team effort.
