Wins have been hard to come by for the Lady Longhorns, but they could be just around the corner if they perform like they did against Hampton. Their 64-45 loss was no indication as to how hard Johnson County played.
They fell behind 7-0 in the early going and didnt score for nearly four minutes. Courtney Brooks and Bella Miller got them on the board with a basket each, then Kelsie Terrill hit a three at the buzzer that got the lead back under 10.
The Longhorns trailed 18-10 after one.
We played better today as a team than we have in a while, said Lady Longhorns head coach Thomas Wampler. The last couple of games weve had three or four people playing together, but theyre starting to play together, five players on the floor as a team. Thats our goal, to get everyone on the floor working together. I think we came closer to doing that tonight than we have in any other game.
Johnson County got within six in the second quarter only to see Hampton go on a pair of mini runs.
Alexis Grubbs had seven first half points but the rest came at the hands of seven other Lady Bulldogs. Kinzy Hill did the most damage hitting a pair of threes but the Longhorns hung around.
Kelsey Duperry kept them in the game with nine first half points including one basket at the buzzer to pull them within 10 at halftime.
