In what was arguably their best game of the year, the Beeville Trojan varsity basketball team walloped the visiting Gregory-Portland Wildcats on Friday night, 67-50.

“The boys did a tremendous job of coming out ready to play. They played with intensity both offensively and defensively for four quarters,” said Trojan head coach Jesse Baez.

“This is the type of game that I knew they could come out and play. They deserve this win.”

The Trojans hit from the outside, pressured the Wildcats and worked inside, out-hustling the taller G-P boys. Beeville jumped on the visitors early and earned a 17-6 first quarter advantage. Beeville closed out the second quarter on a 9-0 run to lead 35-18 at the half.

Beeville pushed its advantage to 25 points, 45-20, midway through the third period but a Wildcat 13-0 run to finish the third quarter made it 45-33 going into the final eight minutes.

G-P hit for 17 in the fast and furious fourth, but the Trojans added 22 points to the scoreboard to run away from the Wildcats.

Three Trojans were in double figures with Ysrael Barboza leading the way with 18 points that included three treys. Thomas Camacho added 16 points with one trey. Eric Soza hit for 12 points and got six of those on his two long-range jumpers. Keanu Gutierez added eight points and made it known that he owned the boards. Robby Horton also helped the Beeville rebounding and had another eight points from the paint. Vinnie Garza and Adam Garica both contributed two markers. Matt Botello hustled and played some tough defense and came up with one fourth quarter free throw.

The Trojans faced San Antonio Southside on Tuesday night there in a non-district tilt. The Trojans will travel to Corpus Christi on Friday night to play Miller.
