    KAUFMAN — The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats went to 15-2 overall after recent action that saw them win the consolation bracket in the Kaufman Tournament.
    The Lady Cats won over South Garland 61-49 in the early game and defeated Mabank for the consolation title, 48-47.

    In that game, Desi Debase had 27 points with 6 deflections and 3 steals. Destiny Wade narrowly missed a double-double with 12 points and 9 boards. Shakoja Debase had 10 points and 3 steals. Kasey Moore had 13 rebounds to lead the team and added 6 points.
    "We got some good experience playing in the tournament. But playing four games in two days is tough," said Jeff Chapman, Sulphur Springs Lady Cats head basketball coach. "We are still not back to playing like we were before the Christmas break. Destiny Wade and Shakoja Debase both played well. Desi Debase had a good game. We played good defense and won some low-scoring games. Our shooting is still not there."
    "We played better Saturday than we did Friday against Jacksonville," Chapman said. "We ended up going 3-1, but at the end, we were playing on fumes. The girls started to get cramps, it was a long, tough day. We're out of shape - big time."
    The Wildcats won a nailbiter, 48-47 for consolation. Wade was high point with 21 and 7 rebounds. Desi Debase added 17 points, 11 deflections, 5 assists, 4 steals.
    Chapman said, "We  get a few days off. We need to have some practice name time to make corrections for district.”
    The Lady Cats open district Jan. 3 at Pine Tree.
