The Odessa High boys basketball team hung close early with Amarillo Tascosa but couldn’t keep pace in the second half as the Bronchos fell 91-65 to the Rebels in the District 2-6A finale Tuesday at the Tascosa Activity Center.

Odessa High (14-19 overall, 4-6 district) trailed 38-35 at halftime before Tascosa (24-6, 9-1) outscored it 27-9 in the third quarter to pull away.

Coco Rose finished with a game-high 19 points to lead the Bronchos while Christian Tijerina added 13 along with 11 from L.J. Willis.

D.K. Alexander and Isaiah Johnson both finished with 18 points for the Rebels.

Odessa High will be the No. 4 seed in the playoffs and faces District 1-6A champion El Paso Americas in the bi-district round next week in El Paso.

Tascosa clinched a share of the district crown with Permian and will be either the No. 1 or No. 2 seed when the playoffs begin next week.
