Going 2-2 for the second tournament in a row, boys’ basketball competed in the MISD Spring Creek Barbeque Classic from Thursday-Friday, bringing home a 65-62 victory over South Grand Prairie on Friday afternoon.

“At this point in the year, wins and losses don’t matter,” head coach Stephen Friar said. “It’s all about preparing in game-like situations for district, and I feel we’ll be ready.”

Playing up in classification, the Redhawks competed against four 6A schools in their last tournament before district play, beginning on Tuesday against Frisco.

“We [got] to compete against some of the best teams in the state,” Friar said. “That is a great motivator for us when we play in district.”
