With football winding down, the girls’ basketball season is officially underway as the team  scrimmaged Prosper Tuesday in preparation for its first official game Friday against McKinney in the Nest.

“We ended up losing by like 5 points I think but overall we had a pretty good game,” junior Makenzi Glover said. “We have a lot of things to improve on but I think we are in pretty good shape for the season. Prosper’s a really good team they have some really good girls that will definitely go play in college so just by playing a tougher team like that. I think that it’ll prepare us for the future teams that we have in our season.”

Preseason scrimmages help determine the starters for games, gives a glimpse of the coming season, and builds team chemistry.

“I feel like they are a good measuring stick as to like where our team is and the skill that we are able to do,” junior Kelsey Kurak said. “I feel like especially for the coaches it shows us which five is like the best, who goes out there and plays the best together, and who executes the best and it is really good team bonding also.”
