Davon Clare has to pick his spots at times coming off the Harker Heights bench. But the 6-foot-3 Clare often makes the most of his minutes like he did in the district opener against Ellison. In a hostile environment on the road, Clare hit both of his shots, including a nice up and under layup and a contested pull-up jumper on the baseline. Clare is hoping to contribute even more as the season goes on and the Knights try to bring home a district title
