The Rocket boys, on the other hand, did not fare as well Thursday night. Westwood lost 39-15 to Eagleville in a game that was never really close.

Westwood trailed 16-7 at the half after a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Keller Hatfield. But Eagleville exploded in the third and took a 31-13 lead into the final quarter.

Matthew White led the Rockets with 6 points.
