“It?s not about the wins,” Kennedale coach Doug Groff said. “It?s about getting ready for the playoffs.”
But there?s no denying that Kennedale has been one of the most impressive teams in the state, which is No. 2 in the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches Class 3A rankings. {{more}}
With its gaudy 27-0 record, Kennedale is the only unbeaten boys basketball team in the UIL?s three largest classes. Including a 93-58 District 6-3A win over Springtown, Kennedale has hit the 90-point mark in three of its last four games.
Groff said that his team has openly talked about getting to the state tournament in Austin since the off-season. Kennedale was bounced in the Region I semifinals last season by Abilene Wylie.
Any of its top four scorers ? point guard and Stephen F. Austin signee Ty Charles, power forward Aundre Jackson, wing Kelon Doss and shooting guard V.J. Hughes, the younger brother of former Kennedale greats Destini (LSU) and Jamaika Hughes (UT-Arlington) ? ?can score 20 points on any given night, and that makes us dangerous,? Groff said.
