Indians beat Rebels AGAIN!

February 6, 2013
By Randall Durant of Keller High School Basketball

People are still doubting the Keller Indians. Like Rodney Daingerfield they are fighting for a little respect. Last night the Indians travelled to Richland for the first place showdown everyone has been anticipating for 3 weeks. Feel free to call your local paper and ask why easily the biggest game in Tarrant county last night got no coverage. Keller, flying under the radar as they have all season, did what they do best. They played together as a team and never gave an inch as they beat Richland 52-47 on the Rebels home court. The season sweep of Richland means that Keller is one win away from securing a district title and the first place playoff seed. Keller is now 11-1 and 21-9 on the year. They will try and avenge their only district loss at Northwest on Friday night.

Keller never trailed jumping to a 20-9 lead midway through the 2nd period behind Kyle Tanner's 8 points. Richland closed to 22-18 at the half, and made a push to tie it near the end of the 3rd period. Enter Mike Opolski, who as he always seems to do made a huge play. Mike hit a three pointer at the end of the third and Richland could get no closer the rest of the night. Opolski proved why he is the best player in the district scoring 17 points(6-9 fg, 4-5 ft), handing out 6 assists and taking all the pressure Richland could throw at him. "He's a Freshmen" chants are common at Keller games as Nolan Taylor pops a three or gets a big rebound. Last night those chants came often as Nolan played with maturity beyond his years scoring 12 points, 10 rebounds and controlling the paint. Alec Ingraham had 8, including some clutch free throws down the stretch. Kyle Tanner had 8 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists, Erik Frederiksen 3, Brock Anders 2, and Austyn Kennedy 2. Very proud of these guys for staying mentally focused and playing winning basketball one possession at a time! There is however, more work to be done.
