After losing in the Texas 5A State Championship last year, Aaron and Andrew Harrison weren’t going to let it happen two years in a row. “It makes it sweeter because we lost last year,” said Andrew Harrison after the game. “Every great player wants to win a state championship. I felt it was our duty to do that.” Andrew scored 16 points while grabbing 9 rebounds, earning him MVP honors in the 46-38 victory. Andrew’s clutch free throw shooting will be much appreciated next year, after knocking down 9-14 overall and silencing a late surge by South Grand Prairie in the final minutes.
Unfortunately Aaron was gimpy for the entirety of the game, turning his ankle in the opening minutes and only managing to score 8 points. The ankle didn’t stop him from playing, or take away from the importance of the victory. “It’s been a long, long road. We finally made it. Losing this game wouldn’t have defined our high school career, but it ended it the right way.”
