The Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ basketball team is now 7-3 after the Marble Falls Boys’ Basketball Tournament last weekend. 
Of the five games the Billies played, they won two. The Billies beat Gregory Portland and Crockett and lost to Leander Rouse, Elgin and St. Michael’s. 
“Overall, I’m fairly pleased with the tournament,” coach Tim Kaman said. “All of the opponents we faced will get us ready for district.  The Elgin and St. Michael’s game could have very easily gone our way, but we just missed some opportunities.”
Blake Tatsch made the All-Tournament team.  
Prior to the tournament, the Billies played a home game against Uvalde and won, 64-51, on Tuesday, Dec. 1. 
Head coach Tim Kaman said a big factor in the Billies’ success is their sheer amount of shooters.
