“We're getting more and more kids in double-figures, and when defenses shut one person down, we have other kids stepping up and hitting big shots.”
Shaletha Clark and Alaisha Castleberry came through with big buckets against Midwest City, and the Eagles had four scorers in double-figures in a tight win over Norman on Feb. 8.
Del City will face Altus at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Carl Albert in a win-or-go-home playoff opener. The host Titans will meet Southeast at 8 p.m. Thursday with the winners to square off in the regional final at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
While the west side of the Class 5A playoff bracket has some strong teams at the top, Del City feels it is ready for the challenge.
“We've got lots of momentum and it's gonna just propel us into the playoffs, just because they're starting to trust each other and realize we're in this for a reason,” Sears said. “They're not fighting over who's on the floor, who's getting this time, who's getting this.
“If they'll continue to come together, we can go a long ways. We've got some great kids.”
