Bryan Adams girls basketball team, district champ for first time in 18 years, pushes for more
A few weeks ago, the Bryan Adams girls basketball team made headlines when it ended Lincoln's 122-game district win streak. But when I talked to Coach Darren Eubanks and the players, they were focused on the playoffs.
"We talk about the playoffs," Eubanks told me for this story. That's the discussion. Hopefully, we'll be focusing on playing longer in the postseason."
Now the postseason is here. Bryan Adams, champion of District 12-4A, opens the 4A playoffs against Molina in a 6:30 p.m. game tonight at Ellis Davis Fieldhouse. Bryan Adams, which features double-figure scorers Fabrianna Dixon (15.4), Jerice Fears (13.8) and Alexxus Gilbert (13.2), is trying to improve on last year's two rounds of playoffs.
Bryan Adams' win over Lincoln was no fluke. When the teams played again last week, Bryan Adams won again, 59-54. (Bryan Adams had won the first matchup, 59-54.)
If Bryan Adams beats Molina tonight, it will take on the winner of The Colony and Highland Park in the area round.
