The Wildcats Basketball Team’s 68-58 loss at Dallas Woodrow Wilson seemed to be the result of a lack of good defense by the Wildcats and a lack of good shooting. Wildcats Coach Clark Cipoletta said Woodrow came out and got the best of the Wildcats. He said they really played good and he added they are a good, solid team. He said they also had a lot of size that affected play around the rim and made it hard for Wildcats Cameron Kahn and Day Day Hall to score inside. Coach Cipoletta said the Wildcats made only 2 of 22 three-point shots. He said the game would help figure out things that the Wildcats need to clean up to get better. One thing was a lack of the usual solid Wildcats’ defense. He said the Wildcats did not put up much resistance to keep Wilson from scoring. He said the Wildcats fought back but just ran out of time. He said the Wildcats were able to cut the lead to 2 points late but could never get over the hump. Coach Cipoletta said he’s been urging his team to be a dog in the fight. It’s something they did in Mansfield last weekend but something they did not do Tuesday night. For the Wildcats against Woodrow Wilson, Hall had 18 points and Kahn scored 16. Boo Wilkerson had 11 points. Lamodrick Johnson scored 6 points. Grayson McClure had 5 points and Justin Brock scored 2 points. The Wildcats play next in a Forney tournament Thursday through Saturday.
