Alice junior Ryan Salas scored 10 points in the loss, but still leads the team with 14.4 points per contest. Salas is also averaging 8.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals for the Coyotes, who are 4-14 overall and 1-1 in District 31-4A play.

Jose Vivanco is second on the team at 13.3 points per game and Hondo Vasquez is averaging 7.8.

The Coyotes will play back-to-back district games starting on Friday against Robstown and Kingsville on Saturday. 

The game against the Brahmas is a makeup after Kingsville was forced to cancel because of COVID-19 protocols.

On the girls side, Jacqlyn Villarreal is averaging 11 points per game to lead the Lady Coyotes. Villarreal is also averaging 2.1 steals per contest. 

Madison Valdez is close behind at 10.8 points per game and Mia Perez, who averages 3.5 steals, is third on the team with 9.4 points per contest. 

The Lady Coyotes (3-12, 0-1) will play three games in six days –– starting Friday against Robstown. Alice will play Zapata Tuesday, and a makeup game against Kingsville on Wednesday.
