KDH All-Area Boys Basketball

Shoemaker’s Shane Johnson drives to the basket around Killeen defenders on Dec. 17. 

The Shoemaker Grey Wolves are back in the hunt for another hardwood win after the holiday break.

Shoemaker begins play today at the LISD Christmas Classic Basketball Tournament at Cedar Park High School.

The Grey Wolves come into the tournament after dropping road games at Killeen and No. 6 Harker Heights to open District 8-5A play.

Shoemaker will play Georgetown at 10 a.m. today and Round Rock Stony Point at 2:30 p.m. before wrapping up play against Austin Lanier at 11:30 a.m. Saturday and Round Rock Cedar Ridge at 5:30 p.m.

The tournament is a four-game match play format. In case of a tie, the champion will be determined by head-to-head results, then point differential.

In its last tournament, Shoemaker finished second at the Pflugerville Panther Holiday Classic and Shane Johnson was named to the All-Tournament team.

The Grey Wolves have a second chance against Cedar Ridge during the tournament’s final game.

Shoemaker lost a home game to Cedar Ridge 74-59 on Dec. 3 as De’Andre Davis, a Grand Canyon University commit, took over the game and scored 28 points to hand Shoemaker its first loss of the season.

Junior post Torenzo Saunders led all Shoemaker scorers with 13 points while fellow post Nykolas Dawson added 11 in the loss.

After the Cedar Park Tournament, the Grey Wolves get back into district play Jan. 3 when they host Waco Midway.
