The Lady Knights opened the class 8A district 5 tournament with a sold win over the East River Falcons. The girls overcame a sluggish start to control the game starting at about the half way point of the first quarter. While the offense was slow to get going the girls used solid, disciplined defense to take control of the game, something the coaching staff has emphasized all season. “Sometimes it seems like the ball just won’t get in the basket, so you have to stay focused on defense and just play through it until your shots start to drop.” The girls were led by Lateisha Edwards with 13 points and 14 rebounds. Jaeda Logan also chipped in 9 points and 5 rebounds. The ladies will play in the second round of the tournament against tournament host Lake Minneola on Wednesday, February 6th at 5:30 pm.
