During the Thanksgiving break, many teams were afforded the opportunity to play in the invite-only HoopFest! Dallas Kimball went up against a strong Corona, California's Centennial High School basketball team on Saturday. Despite their efforts on the court, the Knights fell 67-59 to Centennial. VYPE DFW was there to catch all of the action!
With a commanding presence on the court, the Knights started and finished the game strong. Dallas Kimball fought hard and played a physical match against Centennial, but ultimately the Centennial Huskies were able to finish on top. Check out our highlights from the game below!
Highlight video was filmed by Ibifiri Jamabo.

Last year was a big one for Big Mac. The Generals advanced to the Regional Quarterfinals for the first time in a decade.
Under third-year coach SalvadorFernandez (34-6-6; 16th overall – 175-117-58), who is 25 wins from No. 200 of his career, MacArthur is eying another big season after going 16-3-4 and 11-1-2 in district a year ago.
Six starters return for Big Mac, including all-state, honorable mention Jose Aguilar. He has been a first teamer the last three season and a captain for two years.
Another first-team, all-district team pick returning includes Jay Hernandez andBenjamin Fajardo.
Also, be on the look out for Alan Sanchez (second team), Luis Orozco (second team)and Franck Tabora (honorable mention).
Keys to success this season include underclassmen stepping up, adaptability to a new formation, tempo, and intensity of the game and defensive stability, according to Fernandez. Big Mac is the king of the district, and they are in line to do it again in 2022.
No. 3 Katy Tompkins Falcons
Could this year's Tompkins squad be better than the one that reached the State Finals in 2018?
The Falcons will be deadly from the three-point arc with first-teamer BB Knight (Louisiana Tech-commit), second-teamer Luke Coughran and Jason Clark, a Village School transfer, all in the mix. Clark was a second-team, all- state TAPPS selection, scoring 23 points and grabbing 12 boards a game. Also returning from Fulshear High is Carmelo Yakubu, who could have a breakout season.
Big 6-foot-8 post Joel Oluokun was a first-teamer a year ago and is rehabbing a weird injury. He didn't injure his ACL; he didn't have one. He had it repaired and will be back in December. Also, watch out for Nick Lancit.
With 11 seniors returning, coach Bobby Sanders will have a mature locker room with a ton of experience. That is a recipe for success.
