Andrews, Alpine grid victories change Eagles' hoop schedule
Victories by the Alpine Bucks and Andrews Mustangs in the area round of
the state high school football playoffs this past weekend have shortened
up the schedule this week for the Pecos Eagle boys' basketball team.
The Eagles were scheduled to face the Bucks in Alpine on Tuesday and compete
in the Andrews Tournament on Thursday through Saturday, but coach Tino Acosta
said the game with the Bucks has been canceled while the Andrews Tournament
has been shortened to a two-day event.
Acosta said last week the Bucks' game would be canceled if Alpine stayed
alive in the playoffs, and the Bucks defeated Shallowater on Friday, 21-20.
"All of his starters are on the football team, so he doesn't have anybody
to play," Acosta said.
Andrews is different. The Mustangs were short a few players, but had enough
to win last Tuesday in Pecos, 59-38. But with Andrews scheduled to face Southlake
Carroll in Abilene Saturday night, Acosta said, "Their tournament is only
going to be a Thursday-Friday.
"I know we're going to play two games on Thursday and two on Friday, but
I just don't know who we're going to play yet," Acosta said of the round-robin
tournament format. The Eagles were scheduled to open with Andrews on Thursday,
and Acosta said he should have the revised scheduled by tomorrow.
Andrews defeated District 1-4A champ El Paso Riverside at home on Saturday,
31-14, while Alpine will face Kennedale on Friday in San Angelo in the Class
3A regional quarterfinals. Pecos was beaten in the bi-district round of the
Class 4A playoffs, 45-7, by El Paso Parkland, which was routed in the area
round on Saturday at Monahans by Frenship, 49-13.
