After an 18 point win on the road against Sherman, the girls basketball team (17-16, 3-5) will host Princeton (14-15, 3-5) in a pivotal district game at 6:15 p.m.

Head coach Lance Boxell was impressed with Princeton’s energy and intensity in their last matchup when the Leopards fell short to the Panthers 59-49.

“Princeton is one of the hardest playing teams we have faced this season, and we will have to match their intensity to give us a chance to win,” Boxell said.

With two games left for the team, each game is important in order for the team to earn a playoff berth.

“We are in a three way tie for third with Princeton and McKinney North, and we play both of them to end the season,” Boxell said. “We are happy that we still control our own destiny to try to lock a spot up for the playoffs.”

Last Tuesday, the team, the team got off to an early start, leading in the first quarter 19-3. In their first matchup in district play, the team defeated Sherman by 40 points. Boxell emphasized all week the importance of coming out ready to play.

“Anytime you play someone for a second time after winning decidedly in the first contest it is natural for there to be a let down,” Boxell said. “We had talked all week about making sure we respect our opponent and lock in to what we need to do to win.”

Junior Addison Hand contributed to the team’s win against Sherman with 12 rebounds and school record four blocks. Junior Carsen Mcfadden recorded an impressive stat line as she led the team in points with 25, 14 rebounds, and 4 assists.

Next Tuesday, the team will go on the road to face McKinney North in its last district game of the year.
