The playoffs begin with a bi-district game Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. as the Wildcats take on Frisco at the Ford Center at The Star in Frisco. The winner of this game will play the winner of the Dallas South Oak Cliff and Everman game being played Friday night in Dallas.
The Wildcats come in with a 6-3 record. Their 5-3 district record earned them a #3 seed in the playoffs. Frisco is 6-4. Their 6-2 district record earned them a #2 seed in the playoffs. The Wildcats have lost three of their last four games. Frisco has won two in a row. The Wildcats are coached by Greg Owens in his 13th year. Frisco’s coach is Vance Gibson in his 14th year.
Frisco had a do or die game last Friday at Lovejoy. It was win and they are in for Frisco but lose and they were out. The Raccoons eked out a 48-45 win over Lovejoy.
The Wildcats are taking a unique approach to get their offense back on track. Coach Owens said he and his staff are asking players about plays they enjoy running and ones that are working well. Those plays are expected to be featured a lot early in the game in an attempt to increase the confidence of offensive players.
