Though they were facing the No. 20  in the state, the Coppell boys basketball team beat the Jesuit Rangers, 63-55, last night in the Coppell High School Arena.

 

Coppell never trailed in the game.

 

Throughout the first quarter, Adger contributed another layup and two three-pointers which paired with scores by senior guard Parker Rodman, junior guard Tariq Aman and sophomore point guard Brandon Taylor, gave Coppell (20-9 overall, 5-3 in district) the lead going into the second quarter 19-10.

 

In both the second and third quarters, the Cowboys scored within the last minute, further securing their lead over the Rangers. Throughout the fourth, both teams consistently scored making for an action-packed end to the game. Layups by both Rodman and Adger kept the Cowboys on top.

 

“I think it helped us that [Jesuit] didn’t shoot the ball real early but definitely what we did on the offensive end, getting the ball to our scorers, taking good shots and making some shots I think that was the biggest thing,” Coppell assistant coach Jarell English said.

 

Facing such a highly ranked team, the Cowboys came into the game with a strategy.

 

“We came in with a specific game plan to kind of slow it down, minimize their opportunities and kind of keep us in the game and I just think we executed that really well getting the lead in the first half and the first quarter was really important,” senior shooting guard JB Pietrowiak said.

 

Moving onto the last six games of the season, the Cowboys aim to not let this win make them overconfident in order to focus on their next opponents for a strong end to the season.
