The last two days have been very challenging for every team who has played in the MISD Spring Creek Tournament. There were multiple top ranked players and teams in Texas in attendace. Mansfield Timberview Timberwolves (12-0) eventually came out on top to win the tournament. Timberview had to beat the likes of Sherman, Ep Burgess, Waco Midway, Denton Guyer and North Crowley to claim the title. Seniors Cj Smith, Rodrigo Soares, Marquiss Childs, Trazarien White and Tristan Starks all contributed the entire tournament. Before the season started not too many people were talking about the Wolves. Head Coach Duane Gregory and Assistant Coach Matt Workman have done a great job of coaching the talented team and keeping them playing at a high level. The 5A team is one of the best teams in the state and is looking like a serious contender to win state.
The Twolves 5 (Seniors)
Marquiss Childs / 6’0” / Combo / 2019
Childs is a smooth playing athletic guard that plays with a good feel for the game and makes winning plays. Childs is also a tenacious on ball defender that doesn’t mind guarding the opposing teams best player.
Rodrigo Soares / 6’4” / Forward / 2019
Soares can really shoot the rock, and doesn’t need much time or space to get it off. He constantly moves to his spots and sets himself in the position to be ready to shoot when his teammates find him. Soares is also a really tough rebounder that doesn’t mind helping his team on the glass.
Tristan Starks / 6’2” / Combo / 2019 (Spring Creek All Tournament Team)
Starks is a strong guard that uses his body well to finish at the rim well when he penetrates. Starks has a knack for drawing falls and getting to the free throw line. In the championship game against North Crowley, Starks played with a lot of toughness and make big plays for his team down the stretch.
Trazarien White / 6’5” / Forward / 2019 (Spring Creek All Tournament Team) Air Force Commit
White has athletic gifts that you can’t teach, the versatile forward is a good slasher that can beat you off the drive or hit jumpers from the midrange. White rebounds as well as any kid in the state, the Air Force Falcons are getting a good player in Trazarien White.
C.J. Smith / 5’7” / PG / 2019 (Spring Creek All Tournament Team) (Tournament MVP)
Smith is a fast shifty ball handler that can get by his defenders with his nice crossovers. Smith can really shoot it from deep and when he’s hot he is hard to guard. Cj is also a pesky defender that can really guard on the ball. The Unsigned Senior showed that he is one of the best point guards in the state of Texas.
