  1. LCM 40, Kountze 34. Bears: 11, 18, 28, 40 Lions: 6, 15, 24, 34 LCM led by Braden Bridges with 13 pts and Katon Brown had 12 pts and 12 boards.  Wilson for Kountze had 14.   LCM (8-7) travels to Port Arthur Memorial in Friday.
  2. LCM 55, PNG 36.  Bears led by Braden Bridges with 16, Cole Frost with 15, and Christian Weatherly with 11.  LCM plays Nederland tomorrow at 11 in the semis.  Lcm moves to 7-5.
  3. LCM 63, Jasper 55. Bears overcame an awful second quarter to put away Jasper late.  We were led by Braden Bridges with 22, Katon Brown had 13 pts and 15 boards (including two monster 4th quarter dunks), Cole Frost with 12, and Christian Weatherly with 11.  Gotta clean some things up.  We play Aransas Pass and Vidor Thursday at the HJ Hoops Marathon.  LCM now 4-4 on the year.
  4. Hayden Hefner was named MVP.  Katon Brown and Braden Bridges from LCM were named to all-tournament team, as was William Fawcett from Vidor.  Not sure about other teams, but I'd expect 4 and 5 from Lufkin.  Both could really play.
  5. LCM finishes 3rd with a 52-40 win over Vidor.  Great defensive effort capped by shutting Vidor out in the 4th quarter.  Bears led by Christian Weatherly with 17 pts and 10 rebs, Katon Brown with 11 pts, 13 rebs, 7 assists, and Cole Frost with 10 pts.  
  6. LCM drops a non-district game at Nederland by a score of 53-44.  Katon Brown scored 16 with 10 boards, Cole Frost scored 12 on four threes, and Braden Bridges scored 10.  Nederland led by Jonathan Rayford with 18.  Bears are 1-2 on the year and Nederland is 3-0.
  7. LCM 58, Vidor 42.  Bears led by Katon Brown with 19 pts, which puts him over the 1000 pt mark for his career.  Braden Bridges chipped in with 12.  Gavin Jarrell had 14 for the Pirates.  LCM moves to 1-1 on the year and play at Nederland Monday at 6pm.
  8. LCM falls at home to PNG by a score of 55-58 in OT.  Bears were led by Jr Braden Bridges with 24 and Christian Weatherly's 18.  Edsel Damo of PNG scored 27, including 6 threes.  LCM has a lot of work to do, but hats off to a very well coached PNG team.
  9. Hunter Gonzalez's group never got in the playoffs.  Jordan Wells' group got in the next year as a four seed and lost in the first round to Crosby.  We haven't had a team win district since that '99 group, but are working to get back to that level. As to Jason Throop, he always put on a show.  Hoping this year's team can be that fun to watch!  
  10. We are very excited to have him in the program.  Great player, great young man, and he's going to be a great coach!
  11. Summer League Around SETX

    Orange County Summer League just ended.  LCM, West Orange Stark, Vidor, Bridge City, Orangefield, Buna, Evadale, and Lumberton all participated.
  12. Katon Brown at LCM will be entering his fourth season as a varsity starter this year.  He's been first team All-District the last two years and should easily eclipse the 1000 pt mark this year.  Not as big a deal at some other schools, but he could be the first ever basketball player at LCM to compete in the playoffs all four years. Also, Braden Bridges is coming off a first team All-District season as a sophomore and is having a fantastic summer.  
  13. LCM will be hosting a boys tournament with a 6th grade division and an 8th grade division.  Three games guaranteed (possibly four).  Please contact Coach Jeffcoat ( for more information.
  14. Thanks to a fantastic turnout Friday from our students and fans and especially thanks to a wonderful group of seniors that led the Bears to a great year!  Those guys are going to do some amazing things in life.  To the returners, it's time to get back to work and take this thing to the next level.
