The Lions won their first district game Friday against the Georgetown Eagles 51-32.

“[The locker room] is feeling really good,” senior David Bonner said. “It’s good to come out here and dominate like we did, and be able to play like we did tonight.”

Bonner finished the first quarter scoring six points overall after scoring a couple of three pointers. Junior Kristian Murphy also scored three points, and junior Chase Cotton scored four points.

“[We’re all feeling] excited,” Murphy said. “We’re starting district play, and we can’t wait to see how it turns out.”

The Lions finished the first half in the lead 30-15 after Murphy scored a three pointer to close off the half, and totaling 11 points in the half. Bonner then scored five more points, capping off thr night with 12 points.

“We’re doing good right now,” junior Kobe Thompson said. “If we keep playing the way we are, we’ll probably win district, I think we will.”

In the final quarter, Cotton scored six points, and Murphy capped off his night at 15 points total.

“We just came in everyday and worked hard in practice,” Bonner said. “That’s all we gotta do, and execute, be smart with the ball and just work hard everyday.”

Head Coach Clint Bradley makes it important every day to start strong. 

We talk a lot about having strong starts, and we had a very strong start.”

“A collective team effort on both ends of the floor [made this win possible],” Bradley said. “I think we guarded well, and we talk a lot about having strong starts, and we had a very strong start, and it gave us confidence, and we built off of that.”

The Lions’ next district opponent is Vandegrift (3-2) on January 5. During winter break, they will go on to a tournament, The Colony Classic.

“Vandegrift is a good basketball team,” Bradley said. “They’ve got a very good guard, and they’ve got a couple of bigs who can play as well, so we’re going to have to be very solid, because they do a good job offensively, of getting good guys that can shoot a shot, so we’re just going to have to be sound, we’ll have to rebound the ball well, take care of it, and we should be okay.”
