Lady Cats Basketball Coach Brittney Tisdell said for the Lady Cats, the Edgewood tournament last weekend (December 6-8) was not as good as they would have liked but was not bad. The Lady Cats took third place in the tourney with 3 wins and 2 losses.
The Lady Cats defeated Wills Point, lost games to Gilmer and Edgewood and then defeated Kaufman and North Forney. Coach Tisdell said she would have liked a different ending for the double overtime loss to host Edgewood. She added things just did not go the Lady Cats way in that one. Coach Tisdell said third place in still not bad. The Lady Cats ended the tournament with a win over North Forney that gave them third place.
Coach Tisdell said she was worried after the first half of that game. The Lady Cats trailed 19-16 at halftime and she said her team looked dead. Coach Tisdell said the Lady Cats seemed to wake up at the half and then came out well in the third quarter on their way to a win, 40-33. The Lady Cats outscored the Lady Falcons, 16-4 in the third quarter.
The Lady Cats, now 11-3 for the season, have two home games this week. Idabel, Oklahoma comes in for a Tuesday game and Princeton will be in Wildcats Gym Friday. Both games should get underway at around 6:15 p.m. after a JV game at 5 p.m.
