Dallas Madison rolls into Class 3A final matchup against Brock


Patrick Terry scored 20 points and grabbed eight rebounds as Dallas Madison overwhelmed Santa Rosa 82-44 Thursday in the Class 3A semifinals at the UIL state tournament.

All five Madison (27-8) starters scored in double figures as the UIL boys basketball showcase tipped off at the Alamodome in San Antonio. JeMichael Bowens had 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Trojans while Quintarius Johnson scored 12 points and grabbed 16 rebounds.

Dallas Madison out-rebounded Santa Rosa 66-35.

Madison led 45-19 at halftime before Santa Rosa (34-4) opened the third quarter with an 11-1 run. After a timeout, Madison answered with a 15-0 burst.

The Trojans started the season 4-7 before marching to the 3A state final on Saturday, when they will face Brock with a chance to win the third championship in school history and first since 2009.

In 2014 and 2015, Madison defeated Houston Yates in Class 3A championship games before being forced to forfeit both victories because those Trojans squads included ineligible players.

Leo Lara led Santa Rosa with 21 points and eight rebounds.

• CLASS A SEMIFINALS

Happy 51, Borden County 27: Sterling White scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as Happy rolled into the Class A final.

White, a 6-foot-5 post player, scored nine points in the first half, when Happy used an 11-2 surge to open a 24-16 halftime lead.

Trever Phillips added 14 points for Happy (25-5) while making four of his team’s eight 3-pointers. Happy also held Borden County (22-4) to 29 percent shooting.

Easton Edwards led Borden County with seven points and seven rebounds

The football teams from these two schools faced off in a six-man state semifinal this past fall, with Borden County winning 92-58. Borden County went on to defeat Jonesboro 60-12 in the state-title game.

On Saturday, Happy will play Lipan for the Class A championship.

Lipan 61, Dime Box 47: Tate Phillips and Ty Bryant combined for 33 points and 24 rebounds to lead top-ranked Lipan to state-semifinal victory in the Class A bracket.

Lipan (35-3) led 40-27 after three quarters. Dime Box (27-9) made four 3-pointers in the fourth period before Lipan put the game away with a 9-4 scoring run.

Phillips, a 6-foot-5 senior, had 17 points and 10 rebounds while Bryant, a 6-7 junior, added 16 points and 14 boards for Lipan, making its 10th appearance at the state tournament.

Robert San Juan scored 18 points for Dime Box, which was making its first appearance at state in 25 years.

• CLASS 5A SEMIFINALS

Mansfield Timberview 68, Corpus Christi Veteran’s Memorial 48: Mansfield Timberview opened the third quarter with a 15-3 scoring run and cruised to a victory in a Class 5A state semifinal.

Timberview (31-7) will face Fort Bend Marshall on Saturday in the Class 5A final.

Chris Mullins scored 17 of his game-high 21 points in the second half as four different Wolves totaled double-digit scoring in the contest, including Tim Johnson (20 points) and Isaac Likekele (14 points, 13 rebounds).

Veteran’s Memorial (31-7) limited Timberview to 22 first-half points and trailed by just four at the break as the Eagles used a flexible zone defense that denied Timberview drives to the basket. After halftime, thought, the Wolves spread the floor and upped the tempo while piling up 46 points, 24 off of fast breaks.

Will Chayer had 13 points and 13 rebounds for Veteran’s Memorial.

Fort Bend Marshall 82, Justin Northwest 59: Tajzmel Sherman scored a game-high 25 points to help Fort Bend Marshall (32-7) roll into the Class 5A final.

Jabari Rice scored 18 points and grabbed eight boards for Marshall while teammate John Walker III contributed 15 points and seven rebounds.

Avery Anderson scored 23 points and pulled down seven rebounds for Northwest.
