Rivalry. The foe, Perry Meridian. The SHS (7-9) girls basketball team squares off against district rival Perry Meridian (8-9) tonight at 7:30.

Varsity assistant coach Greg Burton says that Perry Meridian’s strong suit is the transition game and that the team has to take quality shots.

“Hopefully we can score,” Burton said. “Because if we miss shots, that’s the first pass of their fast break.”

He says that the team needs to capitalize in the paint and that the team needs a post player to step up tonight and play their game. Junior Alex Cooper says that she has worked on improving her post moves in order to create better shots for her and her teammates.

Cooper also says that all of the post players need to be able to drive the lane and be able to kick the ball out to the perimeter shooters to create open shots.

“I have had a big presence in the post lately,” Cooper said. “I just need to step up and be bigger tonight.”

This is the Lady Cards second to last home game before sectionals and they need student support tonight. The game starts at 7:30 tonight, and according to Cooper, the team needs the “Birdcage” to be loud.
