Duncanville Advances to the 6A State Finals by Defeating Converse Judson 53-41

Filed under: Sports,DISD |

The Duncanville Pantherettes allowed the Converse Judson Lady Rockets to stay in the game by rushing their shots and not protecting the paint.

The Pantherettes shot only 31% in the first half, with only 25% shooting from beyond the arc. The only thing that kept Converse Judson from pulling ahead and taking the lead at the half was the fact that were experiencing their own shooting woes. The Lady Rockets managed only 29.2% shooting from the field, but did stay in the game by hitting 40% of their 3-pointers.

According to Pantherette head coach Cathy Self-Morgan, Duncanville made adjustments at the half. “I told them block them to block out, play defense, stop turning the ball over and stop shooting the ball so quick.”

Apparently the Pantherettes listened as Duncanville went on a 15-4 run in the third quarter to jump out to a 40-28 lead.

Duncanville finished out the game and took the 53-41 win to advance in the state playoffs.

Duncanville will face Cypress Ranch on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. in the state finals.

Cypress Ranch downed Pfluegerville 70-53 in the other semi-final game.
