Lady Cats Basketball Coach Brittney Tisdell Searching to Find Out Mystery of the Third Quarter

It’s happened several times this season and it happened again Tuesday evening as the Lady Cats led at halftime by 18 points but then came out struggling in the second half. Coach Brittney Tisdell said New Boston’s slow start could be explained by the fact that two starters missed the first quarter because of missing a recent practice. Plus in the second half, the Lady Lions put on a half court press that disrupted the Lady Cats and caused them to turn the ball over a lot. Coach Tisdell said in the first half, the Lady Cats really looked like a team and did a lot of things well. They were up 32-14 at halftime. New Boston dominated in the second half outscoring the Lady Cats, 40-15 in a 54-47 win. After the game, Coach Tisdell asked the players what happened during the second half. He said that would be a test for the rest of the year to come out and continue to play well during the second half. Coach Tisdell said freshman Addisyn Wall played perhaps her best offensive game of the year. The coach enjoyed several of Wall’s offensive moves. Wall led the Lady Cats with 15 points. The Lady Cats, now 4-10 for the season, play at Pleasant Grove Friday evening. Coach Tisdell said they are a tough team but she added she feels her team can play with them, if they play like they did in the first half of the New Boston game.
