Basketball: Wildcats pick up another key win

JUSTIN — What a week it’s been for the Guyer basketball program. Early in the week, the Wildcats dealt with the loss of a teammate when junior varsity player Corey West was killed after being hit by a car. All the Wildcats have done since is rally around each other and score two huge wins in District 5-6A, capped by a 60-50 victory over Justin Northwest on Friday at Texan Gym.


Playing for Corey

Guyer senior guard Zach Garza is the Wildcats’ team captain and lone senior starter. Last year, Garza took neighborhood friend Corey West, then a freshman, under his wing. The two spent time playing basketball at a neighborhood park as Garza tried to teach West what it would take for him to someday be a varsity player for the Wildcats. West never got that chance, as the Guyer sophomore was hit by a car and killed Sunday evening, casting a somber mood over Wildcat Gymnasium on Tuesday as the Wildcats took on first-place Keller in a pivotal District 5-6A matchup. West would be proud of Garza and the Wildcats as they used a ferocious third-quarter surge to hand the Indians their first district loss with a 78-68 decision.


Different directions

Last year’s two district meetings between Guyer and Ryan were decided by an average of only four points. Friday’s game was anything but close, and while one rival is on a major tear, the other is searching for answers.

ALLEN — Guyer coach John Walsh’s play-calling identity has long been one to score as many points as quickly as possible. But in Friday’s Class 6A Division II area-round playoff game against Southlake Carroll, Walsh threw the Dragons a curveball. Guyer, knowing the potency of the Dragons’ offense, executed its game plan to perfection in rolling up 544 yards on the ground and milking the clock en route to a 48-35 win against the Dragons, avenging a loss in the same round of the playoffs a year ago.

On a night where the unbeaten Raiders still were viewed in many eyes as underdogs, Henigan’s crew — specifically quarterback Spencer Sanders and the offense — engineered a masterful 31-28 win against rival Guyer to claim the District 5-6A title while making a powerful statement heading into the Class 6A Division I playoffs.

Guyer’s stunning loss last week, which snapped a 24-game district winning streak, was the result of many factors.

Collins Athletic Complex, the Wildcats found themselves in the same boat again, but this time, they finished the job. Junior kicker Bryson Casmir hit a 25-yard field goal from the right hash with three seconds remaining to give Guyer a 12-10 win over Trophy Club Nelson.
