Boys’ basketball traveled to Plano Senior High School on Friday looking for the win, but unfortunately lost to the Wildcats 51-37, bringing their non-district record to 11-3.

“The scoreboard didn’t show, but I felt that the boys played well, did some good things defensively, played hard, and they showed that they have a lot of fight in them which is good,” head coach Stephen Friar said. “I have to put the team in better situations during practice to help us prepare better for the actual game, and the kids have to be more patient as a whole and wait for the right opportunities.”

The Redhawks knew that it was going to be a tough matchup heading into Friday’s game against a 6A school, but that didn’t deter the competitiveness.

“Plano was a really good team, this was the first time they had the full firepower of their roster after a couple of injuries and sicknesses, so we knew it was going to take a lot from us to come out with the win,” senior Matthew Bishop said. “Coming out from this game, we got to improve and nail down the small things and it should contribute to our overall success in every game.”
