Timberview High Boys Basketball Team Brings Home First State Title
Posted 03/11/2017 06:11PM

The Timberview High School boys basketball team made history Saturday by beating Fort Bend Marshall 74-66 and claiming the school’s first state boys basketball championship.

The UIL Boys Basketball State Tournament was held March 9-11 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. Timberview trailed by 10 points at halftime in the final game, but later turned it around to finish strong.

"I told them if we just do what we have done for almost 40 gamesDefend, run, repeat. Defend, run, repeatthe tables would turn, and they would turn quickly," said head coach Duane Gregory.

Junior guard Chris Mullins led the Wolves with 36 points. He was also named the game's most valuable player.

"I didn't care how many points I scored," said Mullins. "I could have scored two. I just wanted to be a state champion."

The last time the Timberview boys basketball team made it to the state tournament was in 2009. Coach Gregory said his team's wins can be attributed to incredible talent and great chemistry.

"They get along both on and off the court," Gregory explained. "After every big win, I tell them to handle success, protect this chemistry and listen to the right voices. They have done just that, and I am very proud of these guys."

Timberview ended the season with a record of 32-7.
