The Andalusia Lady Bulldogs are picking up steam as they prepare for to start the second half of the 2018-19 basketball season.

“It’s a process,” Andalusia head coach Harrison Mims said. “Our girls have been working hard and they are really starting to come along.”

Mims said that he has been impressed with the leadership on the team.

“I really like the leadership that we are getting from our upperclassmen,” Mims said. “It was almost non existent in the beginning. Now they are really starting to get settled, know their roles and really take charge.”

The wins will keep coming if they continue to follow the process, Mims said.

“I’m not disappointed in our effort,” Mims said. “I’m not disappointed in these girls. It’s a process and they are just buying in. They are buying in.”

Mims said that the Lady Bulldogs have to work on controlling the basketball.

“Ball security,” Mims said when asked what the biggest thing his team needed to improve. “They call it basketball for a reason. It is the most important thing on the court. We also have to work on court awareness and making smart decisions on the court, but that comes with time and experience. I’m patient and I’m going to trust the process. I tell them to trust the process so I’m going to trust it too. We will be all right.”

The Lady Bulldogs return to action on Jan. 8 when they travel to Monroe County for the first area game of the season.
