LOUISVILLE - Participating in homecoming festivities at Whitefield Academy, North Bullitt led most of the way.
With 10 seconds remaining and the score tied, Courtney said a missed defensive assignment led to a winning basket by the home team.
“We’re playing much better basketball,” said Courtney. “We’ve improved tremendously.”
On Friday, Courtney said the Lady Eagles held a 6-8 point lead throughout much of the contest. However, she said the inexperience led to a couple of key mistakes.
“We’re young,” said Courtney. “We’re improving every game and that’s all I can ask.”
Turnovers continue to be a problem for North Bullitt; however, Courtney said slowing the game down would only compound the problems.
At this stage, she is seeing improvement in every player and that is a key for the district tournament and for next season.
Eighth-grader Savannah Morrison led the scoring with 17 points, including a three-pointer, and senior Bre Kuffner had two three-pointers for 16 points.
