Win and advance is what this time of year is all about for the girls’ basketball team and the Redhawks did just that Monday after beating McKinney North winning 51-42 to move on to the Area round of the playoffs where they will face off against Texas High at 7 p.m. on Friday at Wills Point High School.

“I was really excited that the girls were able to persevere because I don’t think it went as we anticipated,” girls’ head coach Ross Ready said. “I think it’s something that our girls felt like we could have gone in there and won by a bigger margin, a more comfortable margin. But it’s what playoffs are about.”

Watching film Tuesday, the team plans to make adjustments for Friday’s game.

“This next team is very quick and a very athletic team,” junior Randi Thompson said. “We are expecting a lot of fast breaks and have a lot of 2 on 1 and 3 on 2s. I’m excited for the game. Last night we were playing too wild. We plan on making that better in the next couple days to beat Texas High.”
