Can't stop

Travis junior Cameron Crockett drives to the basket against Seven Lakes at Hopson Fieldhouse in Missouri City on Saturday, Feb. 20. 

MISSOURI CITY — The Tigers looked like a team on its way to a deep playoff run with a dominant performance over Seven Lakes, beating the Spartans 76-46 in a 6A bi-district playoff game at Hopson Fieldhouse in Missouri City.

Travis will next face Cypress Creek in the area round after the Cougars beat Houston Lamar 67-63 in double overtime.

Travis had a strong mix of offense and defense, going on a 20-6 run in the first quarter. Senior guard Mekhi McIntyre scored 15 first-half points with three three-pointers to help the Tigers take a 36-20 halftime lead. He led all scorers with 20 points in the game.

Senior guard Cam Oliver then got going by scoring 12 of his 18 points in the second half with two threes. The Spartans didn’t score a point in the third quarter until with under four minutes left in the period. Travis had 11 players score in the game.

“We jumped on them early and got a lot of stops early, and that’s going to feed your offense,” Travis head coach Craig Brownson said. “Everyone focuses on Mekhi and Cam, but other guys hit shots for us.”

Junior guard Zach Martinez added 10 points for the Tigers, while Seven Lakes was led by senior guard Ashwin Nair, who scored 15 points, all on five three-pointers.

Travis moved to 17-4 on the season, while Seven Lakes ended their season with a 13-7 record.
