Meadow suffered a 57-66 Floydada loss Thursday afternoon in their opening round of the Caprock Tournament, and unfortunately don’t anticipate any easier games through the rest of the competition.
The Broncos’ next step is a match at 10:30 a.m. Friday at Monterrey against either Perryton or Lubbock-Cooper, both 3A schools. They will play again at 4:30 p.m. Friday, but against whom depends the outcome of other games that morning.
The Broncos traded leads with the Whirlwinds early in the game Thursday in Frenship’s Tiger Gym, but turnovers and missed shots from both the field and the free-throw line kept them down between three and 10 points the last full three quarters.
"We didn’t rebound very well, and not being able to make free throws got us again,” said head coach Kyle Johnson. "(But) overall I thought we thought we played a lot better than we did the week before Christmas, and we’re going to spend all of next week on fundamentals, trying to get better.”
Scorers included Christian Herrera 5-0 3-4 13, Zach England 6-0 1-4 13, Brandon Flores 2-0 5-9 9, Tyler Harrison 3-0 1-4 7, Ralph Urias 3-0 6, Trey Herrera 2-1 7 and Adrian Flores 1-0 1-1 3.
