Coach Cable is very proud of the Lady Hornets and how they’ve overcome so many obstacles of comprehending the game of basketball.  Coach Cable states, “ Although we have not won many games, each game we have competed in, we were granted an opportunity to win.  The most valuable thing that I love about this season is that my girls are now becoming “basketball players.”  Coach cable also had this to say about her girls, “ Mallory and Jasmine are handling the ball with more confidence.  Kenya is blocking out better and Monica is executing her post moves.  We aren’t winning a lot of games, but we aren’t losing either.  We are getting better.”
