Lions putting in work to improve



“Our numbers have increased again this year, as far as participation and we have added a sophomore schedule again this year to get more games for those younger players,” Gray said. “Hopefully, that experience will pay off.”

Regardless of what Moore’s record was last season, it was going to have to go through a rebuilding process. Junior Amanda Patterson was the team’s lone returning starter when they tipped off in the season opener against Edmond Memorial.

“We expect Amanda, as well as Bre Jones, to have break out seasons,” Gray said. “They have put in the time, now they must mentally prepare for every night in 6A basketball. If they show up with their “A” game, then we have numerous role players who do their jobs very effectively. We should compete.”

Moore will take the court again Friday when it hosts Del City before going to Norman Tuesday. That’s a rigorous schedule to open the season.

“We will not be big, we should be a little better at the guard position,” Gray said. “We will try to execute and cut down on our own mistakes, play our game. Take care of the things we can, and don’t worry about the things we can’t control. I believe that those closest to Moore Lady Lions basketball will understand what we are trying to accomplish. We as a team/program understand it, and really that’s all that matters.”
