After picking up a win over DeSoto last Friday, the Timberview girls basketball has a chance to shoo other contenders away from its spot near the top of the district race this week.
Boosting their District 7-5A record to 4-1 going into Tuesday’s game with South Grand Prairie, the Lady Wolves can push the Lady Warriors out of the second place tie. Only Duncanville remains undefeated in district play. Timberview had lost to Duncanville out the outset of the district schedule, 48-40.
Cedar Hill, 2-3, trails DeSoto, 3-2, in the standings and is up next for Timberview on Friday.
It will be a week from Friday that Timberview will get their second shot at Duncanville, a perfect 20-0 on the season.
Head coach Kit Martin had generally positive feelings about the team coming out of a 3-2 holiday tournament outing.
The Lady Wolves picked up three decisive wins before losing a 55-54 game to Flower Mound Marcus and then a 51-47 game to Aledo.
Many teams use the holiday tournaments to spread around playing time and keep players sharp and play back into shape after the break.
But as of last Friday, it’s back to work, even though the true routine didn’t start until this week as classes resumed.
Terriell Bradley picked up where she left off as she went for 26 points for the Lady Wolves against DeSoto.
Dayo Olabode and JaLea Bennett had 14 and 13 respectively for Timberview.
