Growing Pains Hard to Go Through as Lady Cats Basketball Team Takes 1 Point Loss at Texas High

Lady Cats Basketball Coach Brittney Tisdell, on KSST Radio and Cable Channel 18’s Saturday Morning Coaches Show, said her team played some great basketball but she added a less than stellar third quarter and second half probably cost the Lady Cats in a 43-42 loss to Texas High in Texarkana Friday night (January 17). Texas High, down 25-17 at the half, outscored the Lady Cats 16-10 in the third quarter to make it anyone’s game in the final period. The Lady Cats scored only 7 fourth quarter points. Coach Tisdell said she was glad her team played well enough to have a last second shot with a chance to win if made. She said the last shot put a lot of pressure on a freshman. Coach Tisdell said that experience would serve Kenzie Willis well in the future. Willis scored 16 points Friday night. Coach Tisdell said her young team is coming along. She said she has to remind herself that she is basically playing four freshmen. Sophomore Hannah Cordell did not play at all last season because of a knee injury. Coach Tisdell also graduated four starters off of last year’s team. She said the Lady Cats have the potential to be great and she feels one day they will be. Coach Tisdell said the players want to win. She said they have to overcome the mental part of the game and realize they are as good as most of the teams they play. She said they need to act like it and play like it. Coach Tisdell praised the effort of junior Nylah Lindley against Texas High. Coach Tisdell said Nylah wanted to win and stepped up her game. She scored 16 points. Coach Tisdell said the Lady Cats were better against the Lady Tiger press but she said the Lady Cats did have some unnecessary turnovers. The Lady Cats are 1-4 after the first half of district play. They will need a big second half to get into the playoffs. Outside of #10 ranked Royse City, most other district teams are knocking each other off. This week the Lady Cats play at Royse City Tuesday evening and go to Lindale Friday evening.
