Still searching for their first win of the season, the Glasgow girls basketball team is using the winter break to improve their play on the court as the second half of the season approaches.
"We are focusing a lot on defense right now," said Scotties head coach Emilee Morehouse. "We are going to perfect our defense before we get into any of our offense."
The Scotties will also throw in a couple of new schemes on the offensive and defensive side of the ball that Morehouse hopes to incorporate early in the second half of the season.
Glasgow is also hoping this break can allow some injuries to heal. Mykayla Lauckner is battling knee issues as her injury is one of the more serious ones. Morehouse thinks the severity of the injury could force Lauckner to miss the rest of the season, but Morehouse remains hopeful that Lauckner will be able to return this season.
Senior Erika Hartsock is also battling an injury with a nagging hip flexor. Hartsock will get an MRI as early as Monday if all goes according to plan.
Even with the injuries and new schemes being added to the system, Morehouse's expectations remain the same from the start of the season.
"I expect our team to improve defensively and to start out the new year stronger than we finished," said Morehouse.
