The win improves The Woodlands to 10-3 on the year.

“It was an outstanding game,” Highlander coach Dale Reed said. “Our guys came focused to play, but I did some things down the stretch that took us out of our rhythm and allowed Nimitz to get back into the game. I’m proud of the team.

“The “ugliness” came from some bad decisions that I made.”

With a little more than five minutes to play and with a 52-44 lead, Reed called for a full timeout. When the Highlanders took the court both big men, Ryan Lang and AJ Bullard were on the floor. click here for complete story
