“Friday was all about basics,” said Lady Cougar Head Basketball Coach Brad Honeycutt after his Campbell County team fell to Oak Ridge on Friday night on Prudden Court.
The 74-44 loss snapped Campbell’s 10-game winning streak and knots it with Oak Ridge atop the district standings.
Honeycutt points out “We got away from a lot of the things that allowed us to win like we have this season.” CCHS gave up 25 points off turnovers and 22 points in transition along with 14 second chance points. If those points are cut in half, it would have been a different game.
Since Friday, the Lady Cougars have gotten back to the basics emphasizing the basics like boxing out, getting back in transition and taking care of the ball. It’s a short turn-a-round with CCHS back in action tonight at Clinton in the last regular season district game.
“I love this team and we have a lot of basketball left. Tonight at Clinton will be a little different challenge than last time. They always shoot the ball really well at their place and play with more confidence,” added Honeycutt.
The Lady Cougars are 24 & 3 in all games with a 12 & 1 mark in the district while Clinton is 14 & 10 overall and 6 & 6 in the district. Less than three weeks ago, Campbell defeated Clinton 78-44 on Brown Court on January 18.
