The West Point-Beemer Girls Basketball Team (20-6) takes on Wahoo (22-3) in the C1-2 District Final at Fremont High Friday night in action that will be aired on 107.9 the Bull.
West Point-Beemer defeated Arlington 51-38 in the C1-4 Sub-District Final at Oakland-Craig last Thursday night while the Warriors knocked off Bishop Neumann 53-43 in the C1-3 Sub-District Final at Millard West, also last Thursday night.
West Point-Beemer Head Coach Craig Theis says Wahoo shoots the 3 ball well. “I know they’re a great team. They like to shoot the 3 pointer. They like to get up in and get tight on defense. They like to run I guess I should say a little bit. So pretty similar to us except they can shoot the 3 ball really well. And they have some athleticism.”
The Cadets are 15-2 in their last 17 games. Theis says more practice time has led to that. “We decided to pick up our practice about Christmas time, and just go two hours and get after it, cause we got a lot of depth. And so we wanted to make practices very competitive. And we’ve really liked the results of our practice. And these girls are just so hungry whether it’s staying after and shooting until 6:30 or waking up early morning and shooting at 7:15. We finally got the results we wanted from that extra work and extra practice.”
Tip-off is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on the Bull.
