The Billies led by 18 points at one point during their game against Kerrville Our Lady of the Hills, but ended up with a double-overtime loss.

“I told our kids that the loss was on me,” coach Tim Kaman said. “We jumped out on them and instead of staying on them, I decided to get some of our reserves some experience. I probably did that a little too early.”
