Slicing through the air between two Frisco defenders, junior Micaiah Abii gets ready to lay the ball in during the team's 61-49 win over the Raccoons on Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2019 at The Nest. Abii led the team in scoring with 29 points as the Redhawks avenged their District 9-5A opening loss.

Payback was on the minds of the boys’ basketball team Tuesday night. Losing the first  District 9-5A of the year to Frisco, the team took down the Raccoons 61-49 at The Nest.  

“I feel good because we got a win against a tough team,” Stephen Friar said via email. “I feel like our boys really toughened up during the second half. We were able to control the paint and knock down free throws.”

Friar believes that while the team has room to grow, they will become an even greater competitor if they remain true to their style of play.

“If we can continue to play good defense and share the ball on offense we will be a tough team to beat,” Friar said via email. “[To improve], we will still be true to who we are and just tighten up on who we are.”
