The girls basketball team (12-7) will host the Home School Athletics Association (6-11) in a non-district game tonight at 6:30 p.m.

Coach Lance Boxell said he believes the game tonight will be a quality matchup for the team.

HSAA has a good point guard and some girls with length,” Boxell said. “We will have to be able to execute our half court offense to have a chance to win the game.”

Last Tuesday, the team lost to Denton Braswell in a close game 49-44. The Leopards led for most of the game, however Braswell outscored the team 21-12 in the fourth quarter.

“Because we turned the ball over so much last game, we have put a lot of time into breaking the press this week in practice,” senior Ireland Miller said. “If HSAA presses us, we will be prepared.”

Boxell said he was pleased with his team’s effort in spite of the final outcome.

“I loved how we competed in the Braswell game, we led for most of the game but then lost the lead midway through the fourth quarter,” Boxell said.

Junior Carsen McFadden led the team with a double-double, tallying 18 points and a new school record of 19 rebounds. Senior Alexandra Brungardt also chipped in eight points.

“They pressed us the entire game which made us work 94 feet for every basket, and it was a great game to get us ready for some athletic teams in our district,” Boxell said.

As district play approaches, the team has put a focus on executing its offensive sets.

“We run a lot of things on the offensive end and with many of our girls playing their first year on varsity, so it has taken sometime to be able to run the entire playbook,” Boxell said. “By the time district gets here, we will be ready to run all of our sets and give us a chance to win each night.”

After the HSAA game, the team will go on the road to face Royse City on Friday.
