In the freshman contest, the Trojans jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the first quarter and led 14-6 going into the second period. That eight-point margin grew to 13, 25-12, by the end of the half and the young Trojans were never really challenged.
Led by the combined scoring of Cody Vasquez and Tristan Pelitire, the Trojans hit for 32 second half points while holding the Bucs to 24.
Vasquez and Pelitire combined for 42 points on the night with Vasquez hitting a game-high 25 points. Pelitire followed with 17. Matthew Rivas and Tyler Stewart also helped out on the offensive attack, according to coach Juan Guerrero.
The Trojan defense was led by Ryan Casarez, Dylan Knapp, Andy Dang, James Maki and Johnny Garza.
“The freshman basketball team is playing some of their best basketball of the season. I’m very proud of these young men,” Guerrero said.
The junior varsity game was tight all night long. Neither team could break away and it came down to the final few minutes.
“The JV boys played a really hard-fought game against Miller. It was back and forth all game and in the end, Miller made a few less mistakes,” said Trojan JV coach Blake Burruss.
The Beeville boys led by one, 11-10, at the end of the first quarter, but it was all tied up at 27-27 at the half.
Miller edged in front, 40-38, heading into the final period. The Beeville turnovers down the stretch allowed the young Bucs to capture the fourth period 13-9 to win.
Brent Reyna led the balanced Beeville scoring with nine points. Peyton Tabb added eight. Roger Salazar and Clay Blackwell both tallied six.
The Trojans had Friday night off but were on the road on Tuesday night to meet the Ingleside Mustangs. On Friday night, the Trojans open district play with a road contest against the Floresville Tigers.
