Lady Cats Basketball Team Uses Mainly Five Players to Eke by Sherman on the Road Tuesday Night

Lady Cats Basketball Coach Brittney Tisdell admits the end of the Sherman game Tuesday evening (January 7) had her a bit confused. Sherman hit a late three and their gym went nuts according to her. She said she was confused because even with the good three pointer, the Lady Cats still took a one point win. They had a four point lead before the shot. Coach Tisdell even checked with the refs to make sure a foul wasn’t also called on the shot that could have led to a tying free throw. A Sherman assistant coach later told her the Lady Bearcats were confused with what the score was before the successful three. They thought they had won. The Lady Cats won, 42-41. They only suited out 7 players and Coach Tisdell mainly stuck with five players for the majority of the game. It was the Lady Cats second straight game without freshman Kenzie Willis, who has an ankle injury. Plus freshman Serenity Lewis has developed a bone bruise on a foot that kept her out. Coach Tisdell said her five players had to step up. She said they survived. Fouls almost created a problem but Kate Womack was able to play almost the entire fourth quarter with 4 fouls. Coach Tisdell noted the contribution made by sophomore Addy Lamb. She said Lamb has scored in just about every game she has played but she said her defensive play is the reason she was promoted to the varsity. Next for the Lady Cats is the start of district play. Friday in the main gym at Sulphur Springs High School, the Lady Cats play host to Royse Cty, the #14 ranked team in Class 5A. Game time at 6:15 p.m., right before the Wildcats non-district game against McKinney North that starts at 7:30 p.m.
