Tenth ranked George-Little Rock started quickly against number six WACO and never looked backed. The Mustangs raced out to a 9-0 lead at the outset and would go on to post a 64-36 victory and earn a spot in Friday night’s class 1A championship game.
George-Little Rock center Tyler Fluth says it feels great to win as they set their goals at the beginning of the year and they only have one left to go. Fluth scored 19 points and many came off passes from the high post. The Mustangs outscored the Warriors 38-6 in the paint.
WACO coach Bob Hilmers says they were the better team today on both ends of the court and they couldn’t find anything to get back into the ballgame. Hilmers says it was their good play rather than anything his team did, as he says his team couldn’t get anything to work.
George-Little Rock will take a 23-4 record into its first championship game.
