LBJ Boys Knock Out Northeast and Close in for 26th Straight District Title

It looks like Central Texas County’s longest winning streak will continue.

And while LBJ didn’t capture the 24-5A district crown on Friday, the Jaguars will need an amazing set of results in their last five district games to not claim what will be their 26th straight district title after gaining a two-lead in the standings after wins over Northeast 63–60 at Delco Center.

“This is a big win as we are the best team around and are increasing our lead,” Jaguars post Ja’Quan McGee, who was one of three LBJ players in double figures and 10 points, told Jaguars post. “We had problems at the beginning of the season, but we built this team and we are going to continue to build. We would love nothing more than to be district champions again before making the playoffs.”

LBJ forward Ja'Quan McGee prepares to throw against Northeast defensemen during Friday night's 63-60 win at the Delco Center.  The Jaguars lead by two games in 24-5A district with five games left to play.

The game was a stark contrast to the first meeting between the two teams, which the Jaguars won 92-48 in early December.

Faced with the Raiders’ line-up, LBJ, whose coaching staff later admitted he wasn’t having the best game, struggled with consistency but used a strong third quarter and clung to the free-throw line to snatch victory.
