The Terry boy’s basketball team had a mix of talent and youth, but the Rangers had to rely mostly on their experienced players in a tough District 24-5A.
Terry struggled early in the season, but had a strong run down the final stretch of the season, winning seven of its last 11 games, including a 69-58 win over rival Foster that thwarted the Falcons’ playoff hopes.
Two senior Rangers were named to the all-district team, including a first-teamer in guard Ashton Anderson, who was the leading scorer for Terry with 14.4 points per game. He also had 5.5 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game.
Senior forward Abraham Asabi was a second-team selection after being one of the team leaders in rebounding with 6.7 per game. He also averaged 6.5 points per game.
The tough District 24-5A group of teams boasted two top-10 teams in Shadow Creek and Hightower, and both teams were well-represented on the all-district teams. Shadow Creek guard P.J. Henry was named the district’s most valuable player and David President was named the coach of the year. Hightower freshman guard Bryce Griggs was named the offensive MVP after averaging 21.0 points per game.
Angleton senior Thaddeus Chaney was the district’s defensive MVP and Manvel sophomore Shaun Walker was the newcomer of the year.
