Lady Lions out-pawed by Lady Tigers

User Rating: / 1

GRAND SALINE — There was nothing grand about how the No. 4 Saltillo Lady Lions' season ended Wednesday night in Grand Saline. It was salty tears in the wound of the 51-35 loss to the No. 1 state-ranked Neches Lady Tigers.

It was a draw 18-all going into intermission but went consistently downhill from there for Saltillo. The Lady Lions couldn't claw their way ahead of Neches and their trio of double-digit scorers.

“I thought we were in pretty good shape tied 18-18 at half,” said Garry Davison, Lady Lions head basketball coach. “As a coach you just can't simulate in practice how fast and how quick the Neches girls are. It seemed like everytime one of my kids had the ball there was two of theirs all over us.”


Miller Grove prepares for area playoff game

MILLER GROVE — Basketball practice is very serious these days as the Hornets prepare to make a run in the Class 1A, Division II playoffs.

Miller Grove will play Kennard for the area title at 7 p.m. Friday at the Whitehouse High School Gym.

Miller Grove head basketball coach Gary Billingsley is trying to get his team ready after a less than stellar outing in a recent warm-up game.

“Some of our players did not take the warm-up game seriously. We need to be working hard to get ready for Kennard. Some of the things Kennard does really concerns me,” Billingsley said.
