Humble defeats Nederland 45-44 Vype

Originally appeared on


HOUSTON  – We are officially rolling in the 2018 UIL Boys Basketball playoffs and what a first round it was.

There was a highlight, SportsCenter Top Play dunk by Klein Oak’s Tyler Hudson, there were first-ever playoff victories for programs like Shadow Creek, Tompkins and Foster. Then there were the teams we figured would get the first-round victories like defending champion Cy Falls.

Below VYPE has gathered up basketball scores from around the Houston area for Class 5A and Class 6A boys basketball in the bi-district round and showdowns for the area round.


College Park 71, North Mesquite 67

Rockwall-Heath 83, Oak Ridge 54

Dekaney 61, Spring Woods 50

Klein Forest 63, Westfield 62

The Woodlands 56, Longview 43

Klein Oak 80, Spring 72

Eisenhower 71, Memorial 60


College Park vs Dallas Jesuit – TBA

College Park’s Q Grimes (Kansas-commit), who is coming off a triple-double performance (14 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists) will have their hands full against Dallas Jesuit, who has a balanced attack. Blakemore and Scott must come up big to help the Cavs advance. It won’t be enough as Dallas Jesuit advances.

Dekaney vs Westwood – Friday at 6 p.m. at Brenham

The Wildcats are nice. The Peavy brothers and Epps are talented and just do the little things right. Dekaney didn’t play tremendous against Spring Woods but will advance to the regional tourney.

Klein Forest vs McNeil – TBA 

It’s hard to say about this game. Klein Forest struggled against rival Westfield. If the Eagles are hot for the three-point line, they are tough to beat. But they have to be hot. VYPE forecasts the Eagles to get by McNeil.

The Woodlands vs Pearce – Friday at 8 p.m. at Fairfield HS

This is a game of differing styles. The Highlanders do it with guards Wilbert, Carter and Stubbs. TWHS stretches the court with great three-point range and pushes the ball up court. Pearce leans of 6-foot-11 post Drew Timme, who has offers from the likes of Baylor and Purdue to Gonzaga and USC. So do guards or posts win games? VYPE says guard and The Woodands.

Klein Oak vs Pflugerville – Friday at 6 p.m. at Hearne HS

The Panthers of Klein Oak have enjoyed an historic season, winning a postseason game for the first time in 24 years. But can they get to the second round? The ride ends here as Pflugerville gets it done.

Eisenhower vs Hendrickson – TBA 

The Eagles soar as the Redus twins play. Can they do it against versus a tough Hendrickson squad? Ike pushes the ball and will outrun Hendrickson. 


Bush 69,  Seven Lakes 51

Lamar 58, Cy Creek 56

Tompkins 81, Ridge Point 59

Cy Springs 55, Westside 52

Clear Lake 70, Hastings 63

North Shore 56, South Houston 47

Dawson 65, Clear Springs 58

Deer Park 75, Goose Creek Memorial 65

Sam Houston 86, Cy Woods 62

Morton Ranch 64, Travis 62

Cypress Falls 70, Bellaire 54

Hightower 63, Strake Jesuit 56

Channelview 59, West Brook 46

Pearland 54, Clear Creek 49

Atascocita 80, Dobie 49

Alief Taylor 54, Dickinson 52 (OT)


Fort Bend Bush vs Lamar – Friday at 7:30 p.m.  at Don Coleman Colesium

Prediction: This is a great showdown between two really good basketball programs in the City of Houston. Expect this one to be a classic and Bush Broncos walk away with the win.

Tompkins vs Cypress Springs – Thursday at 7 p.m. at Cinco Ranch HS

Prediction: Tompkins is full of talent and finally it paid off in the playoffs with the program’s first-ever playoff victory. Now can they do it again? Cypress Springs is coming off a close win against Westside but won’t have enough to stop Slojund (Georgia Tech signee) and Bieniemy (Oklahoma signee). Tompkins wins again.

Clear Lake vs North Shore – Friday at 7 p.m. at Pearland HS

Prediction: Clear Lake’s Ajare Sanni and Riley Abercrombie’s scoring will be too much for North Shore to handle.

Dawson vs Deer Park – Friday at 7 p.m. at South Houston HS

Prediction: Deer Park is coming off its first playoff win since 2010. The Deer have  a lot of momentum coming into this one. Dawson had to hold off Clear Springs in a close one. Senior Tristan Ipke had 20 points and 14 rebounds for Deer Park in their win and will keep it rolling in Round 2. Deer win.

Sam Houston vs Morton Ranch – TBA

Prediction: Sam Houston is the team not a lot of people talk about. This is going to be a battle of guards and will be fun to watch. Kendric Davis (TCU signee) faces off against LJ Cryer. Cryer is on his way up as a sophomore and is about to get a lot of attention. Davis has the upperhand because of his experience and a better supporting cast. Sam Houston gets the dub.

Cypress Falls vs Fort Bend Hightower – Friday at 6 p.m. at Don Coleman Colesium

Prediction: Cypress Falls has too much firepower as the defending Class 6A State Champs. Nigel Hawkins, the 2017 VYPE Boys Basketball Player of the Year, led the way with 23 points and 11 rebounds in the win against Bellaire. Trejan Wesley had 17 points and Andrew Nguyen had 13 points. This is too much to stop. Cy Falls wins big again.

Channelview vs Pearland – Friday at 7 p.m. at Deer Park HS

Prediction: Channelview shocked the Class 6A world on Tuesday. The Falcons upset the District 22-6A Champions Beaumont Westbrook. Westbrook was 14-0 in District 22-6A and had only lost three games all season long. Channelview the play-in No. 4 seed from 21-6A upsets them and beats them by 13. Pearland beat Clear Creek to get to the second round. Javonne Lowery and Ovidio Perez will be too much to handle though for Channelview as the duo averages double digits per game.

Atascocita vs Alief Taylor – Friday at 8 p.m. at Phillips Field House

Prediction: Alief Taylor is coming off a big win against District 24-6A Champion Dickinson in overtime. Their runs ends against a very deep Atascocita team. Multiple times this season David Martinez has praised the play of his bench. This is what will carry the Eagles to yet another playoff win.

Prediction: Donovan Williams is coming off a big 22 point, 6 rebound game for Elkins but he won’t be enough to get Elkins past Central.

Magnolia vs Whitehouse – Friday at 7 p.m. at Crockett HS

Prediction: Jackson Moffatt is having a wild season. The senior scored 32 points in the Bulldogs’ first round victory, behind him was Evan Palmquist with 17 points. Magnolia rides Moffatt and Palmquist to the Regional Quarters.

ESPN Houston 97.5 FM
Reed Sheppard to Houston seems to be the common consensus. Composite Getty Image.

French 7-footer Alexandre Sarr has widely been projected to follow the footsteps of fellow countryman Victor Wembanyama as the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft.

But Sarr isn't the only big man expected to have his name called.

Though the June 26 draft isn't loaded with bigs, it does have the two-time national college player of the year and a two-time national champion available.

UConn's Donovan Clingan won two national championships and could go in the lottery with his strong pick-and-roll skills and shot-blocking ability.

Purdue's Zach Edey is expected to go much later in the first round due to his lack of mobility and perimeter shooting, but he is the first two-time national player of the year since Ralph Sampson, so there's likely a place for him in the NBA.

This year's draft also includes Kyle Filipowski from Duke, Indiana's Kel'el Ware and Baylor's Yves Missi, so there will be chances for teams looking to add size.

Then again, some team may even take a chance on using a first-round pick on Southern California's Bronny James, son of NBA career scoring leader LeBron James.

1. ATLANTA HAWKS: Alexandre Sarr, center, France

Sarr doesn't have the all-around skills of Wembanyama, but then no one really does. He's still extremely talented, an athletic 7-footer who can wreck rims and the hopes of opposing shooters. Sarr's shot still needs some work, but he could end up becoming a franchise player in the next few years. Atlanta fans should love watching him throw down lobs from Trae Young.

2. WASHINGTON WIZARDS: Zaccharie Risacher, forward, France

Many NBA mock drafts have Risacher going No. 1 — and for good reason. The 6-foot-9 forward has the skills of a guard and should be a perfect fit for today's NBA. Risacher is a superb catch-and-shoot wing who can beat defenders off the dribble and has a huge defensive upside with his length and athleticism. He may end up being the franchise player the Wizards need in their rebuild.

3. HOUSTON ROCKETS: Reed Sheppard, guard, Kentucky

The Rockets need shooters and Sheppard is certainly that. The 6-3 guard may be the best shooter in the draft — his 52% mark would have led Division I last season if he had enough attempts to qualify.

He has a high basketball IQ — both parents played at Kentucky — and averaged 12.5 points as a freshman.

Last week's mock draft also had Sheppard going to the Rockets.

4. SAN ANTONIO SPURS: Stephon Castle, guard, UConn

The Huskies were loaded with talented players in their title defense last season and Castle had no trouble fitting in as a freshman. The 6-6 guard is a solid playmaker who can get his own shot and is a hard-nosed defender. His size and athleticism could end up making him one of the best players of the draft, particularly if he improves his outside shot. Even at 19, he’s already a proven winner.

5. DETROIT PISTONS: Matas Buzelis, forward, G League Ignite

Buzelis bypassed college basketball to play in the G League and improved his draft status by gaining muscle while rounding out his game. The 6-8 forward is an excellent playmaker who can see over defenders and finishes strong at the rim in transition. Buzelis will need to work on his perimeter shooting, though: He hit 27% from 3 for the Ignite last season.

6. CHARLOTTE HORNETS: Donovan Clingan, center, UConn

Clingan's a proven winner as the massive anchor to UConn's back-to-back NCAA titles. Though he doesn't fit the NBA mold of a perimeter-shooting big man, the 7-2, 280-pounder is a load for opponents inside at both ends of the floor and would be a great fit for a Charlotte team that was 25th in the NBA in blocked shots last season. Clingan also is excellent at finishing on lobs, which could be a great fit with LaMelo Ball running the point in Charlotte.

7. PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS: Rob Dillingham, guard, Kentucky

Portland was last in the NBA in 3-point percentage last season and Dillingham's 44% mark in his lone season at Kentucky was nearly 10 points higher than the Blazers' percentage. Though small at 6-1, 165 pounds, Dillingham has a big game with an ability to score at three levels and has the quickness to beat defenders off the dribble. His size could be a liability on defense.

8. SAN ANTONIO SPURS: Ron Holland II, forward, G League Unite

Holland could end up being the best defensive forward in the draft. The 6-7 forward has a nose for the ball defensively — he averaged more than 2 steals a game in the G League — and is excellent in the open floor. Holland can create his own shot, but needs to make more after shooting 24% from 3 on 3.6 attempts per game last season. The Spurs are at least in a position to wait for him to develop.

9. MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES: Dalton Knecht, guard, Tennessee

A knockdown shooter, Knecht could be a great complement to Ja Morant. The 6-6 shooting guard is superb at shooting off screens and can fill it up in a hurry, like he did while scoring 37 points against Purdue in the Elite Eight. Knecht is close to a finished product already, a 23-year-old who should contribute right away.

10. UTAH JAZZ: Tidjane Salaun, forward, France

Salaun can make it three French players as lottery picks in this year's draft. The 6-9 forward fits the NBA style of play. He can shoot it from deep and improved his game — not to mention his frame — while playing in the French LNB Pro A, the same league as Wembanyama before his move to the NBA. Salaun may be a longer-term project, but has massive upside.

11. CHICAGO BULLS: Cody Williams, guard, Colorado

He’s a thin 6-8, but has the size and athleticism to shoot over or get around defenders. Williams can create his own shot, is an excellent finisher and has good playmaking skills for a shooting guard. He shot a respectable 41% from 3 during his freshman season and has a huge defensive upside with his length and agility.

12. OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER: Ron Holland, forward, G League Unite

Holland could end up being the best defensive forward in the draft. The 6-7 forward has a nose for the ball defensively — he averaged more than 2 steals a game in the G League — and is excellent in the open floor, which would be a great fit in OKC. Holland can create his own shot, but needs to make more after shooting 24% from 3 on 3.6 attempts per game last season. The Thunder are at least in a position to wait for him to develop.

13. SACRAMENTO KINGS: Devin Carter, guard, Providence

The 6-3 guard has a massive wingspan and vertical leap, which helped allow him make a big jump from 13 points to 19.7 last season. Carter has a high basketball IQ, is a hard-nosed defender and an excellent rebounder for a guard. The son of former NBA player Anthony Carter, he was the Big East player of the year in a league that included Clingan and Castle.

14. PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS: Ja'Kobe Walter, guard, Baylor

The 6-5 guard was not shy in putting it up from 3 for the Bears as a freshman, taking more than four a game while shooting 34%. His long wingspan and athleticism give Walter the potential to become a defensive stopper at the next level. Shot selection and adding a bit of muscle to his 197-pound frame will be the biggest adjustments in the move to the NBA, but he's only 19, so there's plenty of time.

15. MIAMI HEAT: Nikola Topic, guard, Serbia

At 6-6, Topic is a superb passer with great vision and size to see over defenders. He also has the strength to get into the lane and can finish strong at the rim, making him able to control a game even without being a great 3-point shooter. Would be projected to go higher — maybe with the Spurs’ first pick at No. 4 — but medical tests showed he has a partially torn ACL in his left knee, which he injured twice last season in Europe.

16. PHILADELPHIA 76ERS: Jared McCain, guard, Duke

He was Duke's toughest competitor during his lone season in Durham and is an elite shooter who could fit in on any team. McCain is an excellent shooter off screens and in the pullup game, but can also run the point if needed. He has a high basketball IQ, so should pick up the NBA game fairly quickly.

17. LOS ANGELES LAKERS: Kel'el Ware, center, Indiana

The 7-footer with a 7-5 wingspan has the length and game to have an immediate impact in the NBA. Ware quickly moved up NBA draft boards during team workouts and is a strong rim protector. He's also excellent on lobs and shot 43% from 3 last season, making him the type of stretch big man NBA teams covet.

18. ORLANDO MAGIC: Carlton Carrington, guard, Pittsburgh

The player known as “Bub” gets buckets in bunches and loves the pull-up J. The 6-4 guard has good size to play point guard and, at 19, has plenty of time to develop. His biggest downside: perimeter shooting. Carrington didn’t lack for confidence in his freshman season, attempting 6.1 3s per game, but shot 32% from the arc.

19. TORONTO RAPTORS: Zach Edey, center, Purdue

Even with a lack of mobility and perimeter shooting, Edey was still the first repeat AP national player of the year since Ralph Sampson. At 7-4, 300 pounds, he dominated the college game and will be a handful even in the NBA. The Canadian would be a popular pick by the Raptors.

20: CLEVELAND CAVALIERS: Tristan da Silva, forward, Colorado

Any team could use a steady, do-it-all type of player and da Silva is just that. The 6-8 forward doesn't have eye-catching athleticism, but he is smart and has the size and strength to endure the rigors of the NBA. He also can guard multiple positions and may be the most NBA-ready player in the draft after playing four years in Boulder.

21. NEW ORLEANS PELICANS: Isaiah Collier, guard, USC

While Bronny James got much of the hype in Southern California, Collier was the higher-rated prospect out of high school. Once projected as a lottery pick, his draft stock took a bit of a hit during an inconsistent lone season with the Trojans. Even so, Collier has the type of game and solid frame that could translate well in the NBA. The 6-3 guard plays hard with the strength and quickness to get past defenders, but needs to work on his perimeter game after shooting 34% from the college 3-point line.

22. PHOENIX SUNS: Tyler Kolek, guard, Marquette

The Suns have plenty of firepower led by Kevin Durant and Devin Booker but could use a true point guard to help get them organized. The two-time All-American can certainly do that and also provide points when needed, and should be a familiar name to new coach Mike Budenholzer from his time coaching in Milwaukee.

23. MILWAUKEE BUCKS: Yves Missi, center, Baylor

Missi knows his game and sticks to it. A high-motor 6-11 forward, he is a rim runner and shot blocker who didn’t even attempt a 3-pointer last season. The Cameroon native should transition well to the pick-and-roll game of the NBA and is a thunderous dunker, as he proved during his lone season with the Bears.

24. NEW YORK KNICKS: Kyle Filipowski, center, Duke

New York is loaded with Duke fans and Filipowski could be an instant favorite. The sturdy 6-11 center may not be an elite rim protector or a consistent 3-point shooter, but he has good footwork and plays hard. The Knicks had a solid run into the second round of the playoffs and Filipowski could be another piece to help push them deeper.

25. NEW YORK KNICKS: Terrence Shannon, guard, Illinois

Shannon can flat-out score and has shown he can do it in big moments. Sexual assault accusations might have made teams leery of taking the dynamic guard in the first round, but the Knicks might be willing to take a chance following a not guilty verdict earlier this month.

26. WASHINGTON WIZARDS: Johnny Furphy, guard, Kansas

The 6-8 Australian has a smooth shooting stroke and gets his shot off quickly. He also has good touch around the rim and good instincts on defense, often leading to steals. Furphy is not much of a shot creator off the dribble and needs to work on his individual defense, so he could need a year or two of development.

27. MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES: DaRon Holmes II, forward, Dayton

The 6-9 forward is good in the pick-and-roll game and a strong finisher at the rim. Holmes has improved his outside shooting, hitting 39% from the 3-point arc after shooting 32% the season before. He can defend multiple positions, but would be undersized as a center in the NBA. He also isn’t much of a shot creator, but his pick-and-roll skills may offset that.

28. DENVER NUGGETS: Jaylon Tyson, forward, California

Denver's bid to repeat as NBA champions hit a wall in the second round when its top players were stretched to the limit. Tyson could give them a solid boost off the bench. The 6-6 guard has good size, finishes strong at the rim and is a decent perimeter shooter. He increased his scoring average nearly 10 points to 19.6 last season, so has shown the ability to develop his game.

29. UTAH JAZZ: Bobi Klintman, forward, Wake Forest/Australia

The back end of the first round is typically filled with potential projects and Klintman is an intriguing one. The 6-9 stretch forward from Sweden has good length, both physically and shooting ability. Klintman moves more like a guard and is a good passer for a big man. He will likely need a few years of development before becoming ready, but is worth the risk late in the first round.

30. BOSTON CELTICS: Bronny James, guard, USC

The champion Celtics already have a loaded roster, so there's room to take a chance on LeBron's son. Bronny James has an incredible feel for the game after learning from his father and has a solid 6-4 frame. He had a so-so freshman season at USC, averaging 4.8 points and 27% shooting from 3-point range, but has the potential to be a solid pro. James also could come with a huge bonus if his father follows through with his intention to play at least one season with his son.
