It was a cold night outside of the Uvalde High School Gym and an even colder night on the inside of the gym for the Uvalde Coyotes who suffered a poor shooting performance in a 45-32 basketball loss to the Bandera Bulldogs. “We could not throw it [the ball] into the ocean if we were standing on the beach,” said UHS head basketball coach Tut Wardlaw. “Good defense kept us in the game for most of the night, but in the end, we just could not hit enough shots to win the game.”
