5A Maroons hold on against Lion basketball

There are so many areas in which Lion basketball can improve early in the season, but Ennis still nearly took down a quality 5A foe on Thursday.
Competing in the Highland Park Tournament, Ennis (0-2) played its best ball in the fourth quarter of a 61-56 loss to the Stephen F. Austin Maroons.

Whether it be nine missed free throws, a lack of team rebounding or a couple of players carrying the scoring load, some strides in any area could’ve vaulted the Lions into winning position.

“(SFA) was probably a little more team-oriented than West Mesquite (in the season opener), which depended more on a good guard,” said coach Jerry Mason.

“They executed well and they’re a 5A school. They hit some big shots and turnovers by us led to some easy buckets for them.”
