  1. We are very excited to have him in the program.  Great player, great young man, and he's going to be a great coach!
  2. Summer League Around SETX

    Orange County Summer League just ended.  LCM, West Orange Stark, Vidor, Bridge City, Orangefield, Buna, Evadale, and Lumberton all participated.
  3. 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.  
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. LCM falls to a solid, well-coached group from Huffman by a score of 61-54.  Bears were led by Ayson Simmons with 15 and Katon Brown with 12 pts and 12 boards.  Dillon Todd scored 22 for Huffman.  LCM finishes the year with a 23-13 record.
  7. LCM will play a very solid, well-coached Huffman Hargrave team Friday at 7 pm in Hardin Jefferson.  Huffman knocked off the Bears this year in the HJ Marathon and also put LCM out of the playoffs last year.  Hopefully we can get something going here.
  8. LCM 73, Hudson 61.  Ayson Simmons 30, Katon Brown 16, and Braden Bridges 15 pts.  Bears now 23-12 and MOVING ON to the second round.  Thank you to all our parents, students, and fans for traveling and always supporting this team!
  9. Scratch that...all tie breaker games for the other district will be at Lufkin Middle School.
  10. So Huntington will play Lufkin Hudson on Friday at Lufkin High School.  The winner of that game will play for 2nd vs Diboll.  LCM will play the loser of that second place game.  Nothing is ever simple!
  11. LCM 66, WOS 59.  Ayson Simmons led the way with 22 pts/4 asst/4 steals, Katon Brown had 16 pts/8 reb, and Keegan Sonnier had 16 pts.  KJ Miller scored 18 for the Mustangs.  I'll miss watching him play, but won't miss playing against him.  LCM is 22-12 (8-2) and the 2 seed in 22-4A.  First round playoff opponent TBD.
  12. LCM 56, HF 53.  Ayson Simmons led the way with 19, Keegan Sonnier had 12, and Brayden Babineaux 10.  Bears are now 21-12 on the year and have clinched 2nd place with one game to go.  Senior night is Tuesday vs West Orange Stark in the last game at the Bear Cave.  LCM is going to have to play much better.
  13. Coaches, players, and administrators at LCM are deeply embarrassed and saddened at the events that transpired in this evening's basketball game.  This type of situation has no business in high school sports or athletic competition anywhere and it is a shame that it occurred.   Three Silsbee players were ejected from the game as were two from LCM.  I will not list names, but all ejections were for throwing punches.  The official ruling on the game was this:  ALL players on both teams left the bench area, rendering them ineligible to continue the game.  This results in BOTH teams forfeiting.  According to the officials at tonight's game, the team leading at this point is awarded a 2-0 victory.  That team was Silsbee. It seems that the majority of the posters on this issue are Silsbee fans.  That is to be expected given Silsbee's pedigree, but I do not believe they've given a completely accurate portrayal of what actually happened.  Players from both sides of this were responsible for this unfortunate incident, but the game film does not show LCM as the aggressor.  Quite the opposite, in fact.  Furthermore, no LCM players tweeted anything at Silsbee today.  That is fiction.  
  14. LCM 53, OF 38.  Bears led by Ayson Simmons with 14 and Katon Brown with 13 pts, 7 boards, and 6 assists.  LCM is now 20-11 on the year and 6-1 in district.  First 20 win season in at least 10 years...
