Redhawks boys’ basketball began district play over break coming out of break with a record of 2-1. The team now looks to defeat Walnut Grove on Tuesday.

The boys’ basketball team was busy over the break, competing in three District 10-5A games and one non-district tournament. 

On Dec. 21 the boys beat Emerson High School 70-58 in their first district game of the season. 

After a short break for the holidays, the boys played in the Lakeview Centennial Tournament starting on Thursday Dec. 28, losing to Colleyville Heritage and Braswell and defeating Lakeview Centennial. 

The team took on Lebanon Trail on Tuesday winning 50-30 followed by Heritage on Friday, winning 40-62 and bringing their district record to 2-1. 

Sophomore Gilbert Aluga believes that the games over the break were beneficial for the team. 

“I think we all liked the games because they were just something to keep us on our feet, keep us active, and keep us in shape,” Aluga said. “Also, we got to play against Braswell [a highly ranked 6A team], and only lost to them by three.”

On Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. the Redhawks will take on the Walnut Grove Wildcats, who are currently in first in the district. 

“We want to come out and compete defensively,” head coach Bruce Wright said. “Give ourselves maybe make more plays at the end of the game, try to get a win.”

To prepare for the game the team has been scouting the opponent in film. 

“We just have been studying their players by watching their game, doing scout team and just working on ourselves,” Aluga said. “Our coach has watched a lot of our games, and he always reminds us players to watch as much as we can as well.”
