Estacado was looking to improve their postseason position in a showdown with Shallowater.
The Matadors came out of the gate in a hurry. Laqhaunte Glosson capped off an 11-4 run to start the game with a deft floater in the paint.
But Shallowater wouldnt go away. Jaleel Campbell nabbed a steal and took it coast-to-coast to narrow the deficit to three.
Although in the end, it was too much Estacado. Jaleen Tennison hit a tough lay-up on the fast break to make it a 17-11 game, as the Matadors took it at home, 70-51.
