Northwest’s Mason Hix and Sammie Freeman were named to the 5A all-tournament team last weekend at the UIL basketball championships in San Antonio.

Hix scored 14 points in the Texans’ semifinal victory over Alamo Heights. He also pulled down four rebounds. In the finals against Port Arthur, Hix scored a game-high 27 points on 9-for-16 shooting.

Freeman notched a double-double in both games. Freeman recorded a 13-point, 17-rebound performance in the semifinals. In the championship on Saturday, Freeman scored 11 points and pulled down 15 boards.

Northwest’s leading scorer during the regular season, Avery Anderson, was held to eight points in the championship on 2-for-10 shooting. Anderson was in foul trouble for most of the final game.

The Texans’ second-leading scorer in the regular season, Jordan Keys, had nine points against Port Arthur and six against Alamo Heights. Keys battled an ankle injury throughout the playoffs, suffering a sprain in the regular season finale against Brewer.
