Pflugerville Hendrickson 77  Hutto  66
Yesterday, on Facebook Jalen Wsahington was getting feedback from his friends as to what shoes he should wear in last night's games.  As his boys gave their thoughts on fashion, I offered up a "just hoop, young brotha" comment.  I don't know what color or style he had on but it looks like he took my thoughts to heart  as he gave the Hippos the business.  2011 G Jalen Washington had 32 points to lead the Hawks as they outscored Hutto by 12 points down the stretch, overcoming a one point deficit to win going away.
