Regional Quarterfinals: Berkner 59, Skyline 53

In the third round of the State UIL basketball playoffs, the Berkner Rams men's basketball team defeated the Skyline Raiders 59-53 at Garland's Curtis Culwell Center. The win gets Berkner into the "Sweet Sixteen," the surviving teams in Class 6A out of the 128 who started the tournament.

The Rams win was all the more impressive because their leading scorer and playmaker Torey Everett missed most of the game with a sore ankle. The rest of the team more than stepped up, working the lead to fifteen points and then holding off a late charge by Skyline to take the win.

It's a great time to be a Ram!

Sorry the photo is kind of blurry, but I was kind of excited.
