The visiting Judson High (Ranked 99th in Texas) started three seniors, a talented sophomore and a talented freshman. Judson (Converse, Texas) confidently competed with noticeable energy and skill on defense and offense. The relatively young Chaps (Ranked 294th in Texas) trailed 7-11 at the end of the first quarter and then faced at 18-5 barrage before ending the half 13-25. The final score was Judson Rockets (13-10) 58 Westlake Chaparrals (10-9, 5-0 In District) 37. Judson averages 51.6 PPG and Westlake averages 43.7 PPG.
