“Our girls just have to get more aggressive and play harder,” LBWCC head coach Ricky Knight said. “We have to start making better decisions. Right now, we just aren’t playing very well as a team. I thought tonight we played better on defense and rebounded the ball well, but we are still missing too many layups.”


LBWCC 91,              JEFF DAVIS 64

The final game of the evening started in favor of the Saints and they were able to cruise to a 91-64 victory over Jeff Davis.

DeVante Sipling got things started for the Saints in the opening frame with a couple quick layups and a 3-pointer to put LBWCC on top early.

Darrell White connected on a pair of 3-pointers in the opening half for the Saints to keep the offense heated up.

White came in with 13 points in the win, and Horton ended the night with 12 points.

Roberts came in with 9 points in the Saints’ victory.

“Our men are starting to play better,” Knight said. “We were able to hit some from behind the 3-point line tonight, and really helps us open up the inside game. We still have to get a lot better if we want to host the first round of the state tournament. We have to get better on defense and be able to put teams away. We let teams continue to hit shots down the stretch and hang around with us. This is a big win for us, but we still have a lot to improve.”
