Junior Jaylen Johnson played a pivotal role in Burleson’s first boys basketball victory over Granbury in several years.
Jaylen Johnson registered 25 points for Burleson Tuesday night but it wasn’t enough as White Settlement Brewer handed the Elks, 63-59 non-district boys basketball loss at home.
Depth was on display for Burleson’s boys basketball team over the weekend as they won Jerry Durant/Charlie Gilchrist Kangaroo Klassic in Weatherford.
Defense was the name of the game Saturday when Burleson downed Alvarado, 70-22, in a non-district road game.
According to Burleson boys basketball coach Alan DuBose avoiding the distractions the Elks faced last season will be one of keys this season as they seek a return to the playoffs.
