Boys Basketball Ranked #6 in the State by TABC and #1 in the Area by E-N

Sunday, November 05, 2006
With out even tipping off in an official game the Madison Mavericks Varsity Boys basketball team is already receiving some big accolades. The Texas Association of Basketball Coaches has ranked the Mavs #6 in the state. Madison is the only team from Region IV to make the top 10 per-season poll. 26-5A rivals Reagan comes in at #11, and Churchill at #15. The only other Region IV teams to make the top 20 were Weslaco and Edinburg.

The Pre-Season Honors continued to roll in as the Express-News released their pre-season area rankings with Madison on top of the list at #1. Madison is also listed as the Coaches pick to defend their 26-5A district title. Coming off a 32-5 campaign in 2005 the only thing left for the Mavs to do is make a run in the playoffs.

This years team will be lead by Senior F Carlton Scott. A Power Forward at 6-7, Scott has already committed to play for Notre Dame next year. Madison will also have the services of Senior Post Larry Wilkins. A 2005 All-Area selection and 26-5A MVP, Wilkins is one of the more constant players in the area.

The boys basketball team will kick off their season on the 14th of November vs Sam Houston.
