Got my first look at the Harker Heights girl's team today. They upped their district record to 4-1 with a 15-point win over Temple.
The Harker Heights Lady Knights play terrific defense. They hustle. They communicate.
Alexus Dukes and Brianna McGee are both essentially point guards. Both can dish the rock. Both get excited after making a jaw-dropping assist. They both have excellent court vision.
Angela DeLaney can also handle the ball without any problem.
Jada Evans is sneaky quick, making her way to the hoop for some back-door layups. She gets fed by DeLaney, Dukes and McGee.
I was also impressed with Nathalie Freeman and her tenacity.
DeLaney and Freeman like to clean the glass, but everyone hustles for the boards.
I like this team.
Post-game, Dukes said, "We can go as far as we want to go. The only people that can get in our way is ourselves."
I'm looking forward to watching them play again.
Nice work today, Lady Knights.
