The Lady Hawks knew they had a big task heading into Friday’s game. Lauren Cox, Flower Mound’s center and the #1 recruit in the nation, was coming to the Hawks’ Nest. The plan was to double team her, trap her, whatever it took to stop the 6’4″ Jaguar from dominating the game. What happened instead was the sound of a whistle throughout the game, as the refs called foul after foul on the Lady Hawks as they desperately tried to guard Cox. She took advantage of her free throws and crashed the boards, scoring 32 points with ease before sitting on the bench for the last half of the fourth quarter.

The 60-48 loss wasn’t like the team’s recent losses. This time, senior point guard Grace Pospichal was able to lead her team through the full-court press, something the Lady Hawks have struggled with the past few games. Center Mary Leigh Rock had another consistent game, scoring 13 points and grabbing a few key rebounds. The X-factor in the game was Victoria Miller, whose physical play and tough defense kept the team in the game before Flower Mound grabbed a 19-point lead late in the third quarter. This loss wasn’t detrimental to the Lady Hawk’s playoff hopes either. They have three district games remaining (Plano West, Plano East, and McKinney Boyd), and sit just a game and a half out of fourth place. If they play as tough as they did against the Jaguars, then they might just be able to sneak into the playoffs as the fourth seed in district 6-6A.
