The Sulphur Springs will be gunning for their first home win of the year when they host North Lamar tonight.
The Wildcats and Panthers will battle in the middle school gym. The freshmen play at 4:30 p.m. with the junior varsity and varsity to follow.
Games had to be moved to the middle school gym due to repair work underway at the main Sulphur Springs High School gym.
The Wildcats are 2-2 in their last four games, all coming in the Royse City Tournament.
Sulphur Springs managed wins over Terrell and Seagoville in the tournament.
“We are playing better. We must be more consistent in our effort and execution. we still struggle with being lackadaisical with the ball, we need to value possessions more,” said Jeremy Josey, Sulphur Springs head boys basketball coach. “Playing North Lamar will be a good challenge for us, as they are a successful program that runs multiples presses over the course of the game. We will need to take care of the basketball and finish opportunities to score. We do that, and we will be fine.”
The Wildcats saw North Lamar in a scrimmage earlier in the year, playing the squad with mixed results.
Josey said he hopes his team has improved since then.
“Our defense will always be a work in progress,” Josey said. “Our kids have seen what happens when we work our plan/formula for success and what happens we we do not.”
