Girls head into sub-district seeded first with 17-4 record

The preparation for Brady’s sub-district basketball games is much the same as any other regular-season game.

“We just have to go play our game at our tempo,” said Eagle coach Lance Arterburn. “We need to get some early baskets off our pressure and hold the other team down.”

That’s been the game plan for the 17-4 Eagles all season and it will continue to be the plan into post-season play this week.

“I don’t know the last time the Brady girls have earned a No. 1 seed in the sub-district,” Arterburn said, “if ever. It’s kind of nice to be sitting at the top.”

Now the Brady girls just need to play like they’re at the top, he said.

The Eagles know the road to their goal of a return trip to the state tournament next month begins with Medicine Valley in the D2-9 sub-district and will likely go through previously state-rated

Hitchcock County (18-5).

“But we can’t afford to look past anyone,” Arterburn said. “So we’re taking one game at a time.”

The Eagles finished the regular season on the road at Curtis Friday with a 64-21 win over the Raiders (1-18).

“It was nice to get the younger girls some time on the court,” Arterburn said. “They’re going to need that experience next year.”

Brady’s reserves played roughly 12 of the 32-minute game.

The Eagles jumped out to a 16-4 first quarter lead and never looked back.
