No. 1 Cypress Creek defeats Cinco Ranch 67-29

Cypress Creek looked the part on Saturday.

Led by Texas signees Rori Harmon and Kyndall Hunter, Cypress Creek was impressive. Hunter led the team with 23 points, while Harmon scored 17. Four players overall ended the game in double-digits.

The defense is what was truly impressive.

After a 10-point first quarter, Cypress Creek locked down to allow seven total points over the next two quarters. Cypress Creek's lead ballooned to 32-13 at the half on the way to the 38-point victory.
