Signature win has Madison Marlins confident in postseason

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- It was a win that took Madison to a new level, a win that made believers of the Marlins.

Madison knocked off Yates last week, snapping the mighty Lions' 114-game winning streak.

Madison longtime head coach Craig Maura says it gave his team confidence. It gave them a signature win for the first time.

For the team, it was a blast.

Freshman guard Jeremiah Gambrell added, "We bonded as a team. We had fun on the court. We had fun beating them."

No one had more fun that night than big Chris, Madison's 6'10" senior Chris Harris. Harris dominating with 26 points, 10 rebounds and 7 blocks.

According to Harris, "It motivated us for the playoffs, made us more assure of game plan."

Harris really turned up his game against Yates and for Madison to make a run in the playoffs, his presence on the court will make the difference.

Coach Maura says Harris played one of his most dominating games he's had in his high school career. If he plays like that, we can really do some special things in the playoffs.

Of course it's one game at a time in the post-season. After their win over North Forest Monday, Madison is the number two seed coming out of district 20-5A, with their eye on the top seed.

Coach maura was asked if he can see Yates in the playoffs?

"Only if it's in the region championship."
