Bulldogs miss playoffs, set new highs

Posted in:

The Bulldogs closed out their season with a 10-15 overall record and 2-8 district record, missing the playoffs by one game last week.

While falling short of the postseason, the Bulldogs finished with the program’s best winning percentage since 2014-2015 and the most wins since 2017-2018.

The team also improved its points per game average by 18 percent from last season and lowered its points per game allowed average by 8 percent.

The Bandera varsity boys basketball team closed out their year against two powerhouse opponents, Wimberley and Boerne, before the curtain came down on the 2020-2021 season.

In the Tuesday, Feb. 9, Boerne game, the Greyhounds got off to a whitehot start and never slowed down, only missing 12 shots on their way to their 21st win of the season.

Bandera kept up with Boerne for most of the first half before running out of gas in the second. The Greyhounds continued their success from behind the three-point line to pull away for an 89-36 romp over the Bulldogs in the Bandera home game.

In the Friday, Feb 12, Wimberley game, the Bulldogs bounced back and gave the Texans everything it could handle on the road game. Ultimately, they struggled in the fourth quarter after getting several players into foul trouble.

Bandera’s 76-point outing in a win against Canyon Lake was the most points the program scored in a game since 2015, and it was the most points scored in a district game since 2008.

Bulldogs’ coaching staff recognizes and thanks its senior class, featuring Trace Decker, Ryan Zimmel, Lukas Jackson, Liberty Bomer, Gunnar Winkler and Ethan Langton, for their hard work and dedication to the program throughout their high school careers.

“We fell short of our ultimate goal of getting to the playoffs and winning a playoff game, but this group of seniors accomplished a lot and helped to lay the foundation for the future success we aim to achieve as a program,” said coach Brady Keane. I’m so glad I got a chance to work with our six seniors this year, and I’m going to miss them a ton.”

“At the same time, I hope the disappointment of missing out on the playoffs by one game will motivate our underclassmen to get in the gym this spring, summer and fall and encourage them to put in the work necessary to have a big win next year,” he continued.

“We will return four starters from the lineup we played with in the second half of district play, and I’m excited about the future in Bandera!”
