Wildcats Basketball Coach Clark Cipoletta said the Wildcats played much better at a scrimmage Tuesday night (November 12) than they did on Saturday. The Wildcats scrimmaged Mesquite Poteet and Tyler Lee at Mesquite Poteet Tuesday evening. Coach Cipoletta said the Wildcats did not appear to be having fun on Saturday. He said he knows the team has a target on their back and will get everyone’s best shot but he said the team did not seem to handle that Saturday. He added some team members seemed to take it personally when things did not go their way. Coach Cipoletta saw a difference Tuesday night. He said the team seemed to find a way to overcome things when the team was in a tough stretch. He noticed they were having fun Tuesday night. Coach Cipoletta said he challenged Cameron Kahn after his play Saturday and he said Kahn responded Tuesday night. He said Boo Wilkerson was more focused on handling the ball. Coach Cipoletta said Lamodrick Johnson has been slowed by an ankle injury. The coach liked the play of Day Day Hall and Grayson McClure. Coach Cipoletta was really excited by the improved play of Justin Haire. He said Haire, a 6-foot-7 sophomore, had a couple of put back dunks, got some offensive rebounds and seemed more calm and poised than he was Saturday. Coach Cipoletta said he was not ready for Decatur. He said he still needed another couple of days to get ready for them. He has those days. The Wildcats open the regular season against Decatur, the #7 ranked team in Class 4A, Saturday at 11 a.m. at North Crowley at the Cowtown Showdown.
