Falling short in playoffs, the CP boys basketball team finished their season 11-5 when they lost 72-65 to Alamo Heights on Feb. 26. This was the seventh consecutive year that the basketball team advanced into playoffs and boasted six academic all district players. This was senior Davis Brock’s third year going into the playoffs.

“It’s great to know that I was able to add to Cedar Park’s legacy,” Brock said. “I would have rather gone a lot further in the playoffs, obviously, but we worked hard and finished with a season I’m very proud of.”

According to senior Brock, the T-Wolves had different  strengths and weaknesses throughout the season.

“We had a lot of natural athletic ability, like height and speed, as well as skill such as shooting, but we also all played the game really well together,” Brock said. “I think everyone knew their role on the team and executed their role. One of our weaknesses is many times we would play down to our opponents, for example when we played Marble Falls we thought they would be a bad team, so we didn’t play our best because we didn’t think we needed to.”

Overall the season started off rough for the T-Wolves, but finished strong, according to junior Keaton Hervey who was named MVP of the district. With off season coming around, the team plans on keeping basketball the number one priority in preparation for next year.

“We will continue to work hard and be more focused during the basketball season,” Hervey said. “We have to hope there will be no injuries during the season.”

In order to perform better next year and hopefully advance further into the playoffs, junior Cameron Hunt plans on working on his individual skills.

“I probably needed to be a better communicator on and off the court,” Hunt said. “I need to focus on working harder in and out of school and becoming an overall better teammate.”

Along with Hervey, Hunt was pleased with the season the team played.

“The season was great,” Hunt said. “It was a great experience for me especially to play with the seniors that are about to leave.”

Reminiscing on the past season, Brock shared that he will miss his teammates most of all.

“I think I’m going to miss the guys, my friends that I’ve been playing with for so long,” Brock said. “Also the student section. Hearing them roar when we’d make a good play and knowing that my friends and family were cheering us on.”
