Lady Dillos advance in State Play-offswe

By Coach Alicia Cummings 

The Lady Dillos began their 2018 playoff push by facing the Lady Hornets of Louise in the Bi-District round. The Lady Dillos came out red hot from the 3-point line and made 6 threes’ in the first quarter to take a commanding lead. The Lady Dillos would continue to push the ball in transition and apply full court pressure and in the end it proved to be too much for Louise. The Lady Dillos defeated the Lady Hornets by a score of 76-24. I felt like our girls did a good job of running our break and looking for opportunities in transition. We are not usually the biggest team on the floor so we emphasize using our speed and defensive pressure to counter that.

Lady Dillo Basketball Report

By Alicia Cummings

The Lady Dillos hosted the Mason Cowgirls on Friday night with a share of the District title on the line. Mason was able to win the first match-up a couple of weeks ago, but we felt like if we made some adjustments we would give ourselves a good opportunity. As most rival games are, this one was very intense and physical right from the start. The Lady Dillos held a slim 18-15 lead at halftime, but Mason would outscore the Lady Dillos 12-2 in the 3rd quarter and take a 27-20 lead into the 4th. The Lady Dillos trailed by as much as 12 points in the 4th quarter but would come storming back with 5 minutes remaining in the game. The Lady Dillos full court pressure along with solid offensive possessions allowed the Lady Dillos to comeback and force the game into overtime. In overtime, the Lady Dillos made some key defensive stops and some clutch shots to eventually defeat Mason by a score of 45-42.

Lady Dillo Basketball Report

Submitted by Alicia Cummings

The Lady Dillos traveled to Center Point on Tuesday night to face the Lady Pirates. The Lady Dillos took command early in the first quarter by jumping out to an 11-3 lead. The Lady Dillos did not slow down and rolled to a 44-17 victory over Center Point.

I felt like the girls executed well on offense and saw the floor really well. They also played solid defense and made it difficult for Center Point to get anything easy. We have been emphasizing putting our opponent in difficult situations and then finishing with the rebound. I was proud of the effort the girls gave on both ends of the floor.

Lady Dillo Basketball Report

Submitted by Alicia Cummings

The Lady Dillos traveled to Junction on Tuesday night to start the 2nd round of District play. The Lady Dillos got off to a fast start and overwhelmed the Lady Eagles with their defensive pressure. The Lady Dillos led 17-2 after the first quarter and never looked back. The Lady Dillos went on to defeat Junction by a score of 52-9. I felt like our girls came out with a lot of energy to start the game and they never let up. It is difficult to hold a varsity team to single digits and I thought our girls did a great job on the defensive end of being disciplined and limiting Junction’s second chance opportunities.
