Basketball season here at the Ranch has been record-breaking.

The Maverick boys made history as the bi-district champions with a perfect 12-0 record in district play. They beat Ridgepoint 91 to 71 in the first round of the playoffs.

Westley Sellers scored 14 points and had 10 assists, LJ Cryer scored 21 points and had 11 assists, and Eddie Lampkin scored a game high 22 points and 10 rebounds.

Talk about State is definitely in the air due to the tremendous season the basketball team has had. Coach Christopher Owor spoke about the early on success of this team.

“I knew for a fact if they put in the work and they locked in, it would be so,” said Owor. “I said at Mav Madness last year we would go to State, little did know it was for this year rather than last year.”

With great success and complete dominance on the court, there has to be a reason for this beneficial outcome, such as leadership.

“It’s something that you saw them do the first day they walked on campus,” he said about the leaders on the team. “They just have to fine-tune their leadership skills…we have a bunch of guys that play with each other, because the leaders know their role. We have a cheat code in basketball with one of the best point guards in the country and one of the best centers in the country and they’re both selfless.”

After winning the first round of the playoffs, the energy is still high. But it’s not time to lose focus on the goal at hand. The team has made the utmost effort to make it to the position that they are in now. Coach Owor explained the mindset for the games to come.

“Keep being locked in, our defense is our offense…having the added focus on paying attention to details and appreciating the pursuit of perfection rather than focusing on the target of perfection, so we can embrace that grind,” he said. “The grind is how we get to be great, not the end result. We are at a perfect position right now.”

The Mavericks are still in for the fight, and you do not want to miss them in action. The team faces the Bellaire Cardinals at Barnett Stadium Friday at 7 pm.

Come and support your Morton Ranch Mavericks on their journey to the Alamodome!
