BURN THE HORSEHigh school basketball is just starting to get going. Here's an update on some of UALR's signees.
Regardless of which one of these accounts is correct, it’s still a nice debut for UALR signee Josh Hagins of Bossier City (La.) Airline.
Bossier City Press: The Airline boys opened their season Tuesday night with a 104-70 victory over the Northwood Falcons at Northwood. Josh Hagins hit seven 3-pointers and scored 30 points. Hayden Hildebrand scored 28.
Shreveport Times: At Northwood, Josh Hagins connected on eight 3-pointers as he torched the Falcons for 33 points in the season-opening win.
The Austin American-Statesman had this to say about UALR signee Andrew Poulter: “New Braunfels Canyon (29-7): Ranked eighth in Class 4A in the TABC preseason poll, Canyon returns 6-foot-11-inch senior Andrew Poulter.”
And this to say about signee Mareik Isom: “Bowie (26-7): Loss of two-time All-Central Texas honoree Connor Robinson will hurt, but Bulldogs still have a dynamic duo in Paul Baxter and Arkansas-Little Rock signee Mareik Isom.”
Isom had 30 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists in an 84-80 loss to McNeil last week. Bowie plays against LBJ tonight.
UALR signee John Gillon of Houston Strake Jesuit is averaging 23.5 points through two games.
