This week in Texas High School basketball includes a matchup that could be vital to the postseason in the coming weeks.
TAPPS 5A Division rivals -- Fort Bend Christian Academy and The Woodlands Christian Academy -- are primed for their second meeting of the regular season this Tuesday on KRPC's Game of the Week.
The Woodlands Christian Academy leads the district, boasting a 20-8 record (including tournament play) with an undefeated record in the district (8-0). The Warriors are led by junior PG Tres Luzey, who’s averaging nearly 20 points per game; 6-foot-7 senior Wyatt Boeker, who has been racking up the rebounds; and sophomore guard Nick Brashear, who has been a game-changer from behind the three-point line.

On the Fort Bend Christian Academy side, they currently hold the fourth seed, with a 9-8 record (6-3 in district). Expect junior forward Jason Johnson, sophomore guard Noah Benny, and senior guard Jaden Araiza to make some noise on the hardwood against their heated rivals.

The last matchup between these two TAPPS contenders resulted in a narrow 71-67 TWCA victory. FBCA will intend to flip the script, while TWCA seeks to solidify its district title. Who will come out on top?
Time will tell, as the two are slotted to play this Tuesday in FBCA’s home court at 7 pm.
The 2022 VYPE Holiday Invitational powered by the Daspit Law Firm tips off Thursday morning as a dozen Houston-area teams do battle for the coveted championship.
“This year’s lineup is loaded with talent and every team participating should qualify for playoffs,” VYPE’s CRO and tournament director Derek Dusek said. “We are thankful for our partnership with Aldine ISD and the support from our sponsors (Daspit Law Firm, Whataburger, Grind Basketball and Freddy’s).”
The two-day event will start off at Aldine Davis High School for pool play running on two courts with games starting from 9 am to 4:30 pm. Friday’s games will be at the M.O. Campbell Center – one of the crown jewels of Houston-area basketball arenas.
Some of the headliners include VYPE Top 5 Public School Teams Dawson and Booker T. Washington and No. 1 Private School Squad Houston Christian.
The Dickinson Gators are a Top 15 team and play a fast brand of basketball. FB Bush has won a State Title (2010) and Klein Forest (2019) was in the Finals over the past five years.
TWCA has won seven TAPPS titles – most recently in 2021 and 2020, and Stratford is led by Rice-signee Keanu Dawes, who starred in last year’s event.
A special thanks goes out to the Daspit Law Firm for sponsoring the third-annual event.
