Lexington Clinches 3rd Place in District

by Mike Organ

Lexington defeated Rogers 47- 36, in Rogers. Thorndale defeated Lago Vista, clinching a spot in the basketball post season.

Lexington won the game against Rogers in typical fashion, as their pressure defense caused numerous turnovers and earned some easy lay ins for the offense.

A.J. Flot, just back from a bout with the flu, led the team in scoring. He was the beneficiary of Lexington assists, off of drives by Jason Washington and Donnie Havard. Flot moved near the basket, and was passed the ball for very short shots.

Havard had the shooting night for Lexington. It seemed every time Rogers would make a run at Lexington, Havard would put a dagger in their comeback attempt with a three-point shot. Havard made three treys, all at critical points in the game.

When he wasn’t driving to the basket, Washington would drop a long three to draw the Rogers defense back outside.

Lexington won every quarter in route to the playoff-clinching victory. Once again, the Eagles had trouble making lay ups. They missed enough cripples to have won the game by 20 points or more.
