Badgers boys finish 4th in Brownwood
The Lampasas Badgers couldn't overcome a poor shooting night and lost 55-40 to Cisco in the third-place game at the Brownwood tournament.
Michael Murray led the Badgers with 12 points. Asiel Gary had nine points and eight rebounds. Nate Borchardt also score nine, and Kolbe Penick finished with eight.

The Badgers went straight from their mandatory holiday break to the tournament, with no practice time. And coach Aaron Nuckles said it showed. Lampasas is off until Jan. 7.
"I’m really excited," he said. "A full week of practice with no games, which is what we need."
