This team would have given the TJ Ford/Dan Ewing Willowridge the business, they've been so dominant

that kid Davis lookin like Kwame Brown.

that team reminds me of my summer league team when we pressed all the time whenever we scored buckets. it puts more pressure to the other team.

Um no! Not even close. I saw them play in Austin both their junior and senior years.... Yates depends on the press and that wasnt gonna happen against the 2 best guards in the country in 2001. They were both turnover free and pressing them wasnt even an option. 5 major D-1 starters too with a monster front line. Yates is a very solid team in this era tho and unbeatable

Tweeted about the game while i was at the game....

Yates was basically toying with them the whole game, shot 35 3s created turnovers at will ( 34)...
if it wasnt for #11 and #1 bailing The Colony time and again it could of got real ugly.

They were giving up layup after layup in order to get back out in transition...

They werent overly impressive in person but when you shoot 95 times and shoot 20 something free throws youre going to score 100+ easy.
I dont think they werent at their best tonight tho

The talent in the city ain't nowhere near where it use to be. Greg Wise is a AAU coach and that team is basically a AAU tram.

They have been thoroughly dominant all season but I couldn't see em beating a Willowridge team from back in the day.

seems like all the good players in houston go to this school.
Yates is a 4A High School. It's an open enrollment, so yeah, pretty much anyone could go there basically.

It doesn't apply to all schools out here in Houston.

I went to about 10 yates games this season and games were over before halftime. One game was 34-0 at one point and 91-16 at HALFTIME I believe. They sold out a high school basketball arena that seats 8,000 last weekend 2 hours before tip-off plus traffic was back up bout 7 miles to get there.

Brandon Snap Peters (23) jumps crazy high for a person that's  6'1 or 6'2
check him out in this dunk contest (red shirt)

Yates is a real good team, but they would not compete with Willowridge 01' or the Dallas Lincoln 02' team. Season isn't over, I think Lancaster can pull it off, but I wouldn't be surprised with the outcome whichever way it goes.
