Prosper finished runner up last week in the Prosper Independent School District tourney.
“It was another great and successful tournament ran by our school district and booster club,” coach Jonathan Ellis said. “The first three games of the tourney, we were playing our best basketball of the season. I’m really proud of the way we shared the ball on offense and played team defense. We competed and played hard the entire championship game and improved as a team. Josh Davis and Zach Wrightsil earned all tournament.”
