From the opening tip, the No. 1-ranked Sherman Huskies seized control and never let go as they dominated Arlington by an 84-38 margin Friday in a 1A matchup played at Arlington High School.
“We came out at the start tonight and really played our best defense of the year in the first quarter,” said Sherman coach Bill Blevins. “We did a great job of hedging screens, having on ball pressure, and blocking out. This was just a fantastic overall effort. I’m very proud of this team.”

Treve Martin scored nine points, Isaiah Coles ended up with eight, Maverick Winslow had seven and Luke Martin tallied six points, as the Huskies (19-5 overall, 13-0 league) wound up with 34 field goals, five 3-pointers, and shot 11 of 14 from the line.
