CARY -- Jordan’s girls’ basketball team was down 15 in the early third quarter, but coach Ty Cox was patient. He was confident that his Falcons would be able erase the deficit with continued strong play on defense.
Cox was right.
Jordan clamped down on host Panther Creek in the second half, allowing the Falcons to come back for a 45-41 opening-night win.
The Catamounts (0-1) scored just eight points in the third quarter and five points in the fourth quarter.
“I told the girls we’ve got to hold them to single-digit quarters in the second half,” Cox said. “It’s just a testament to what we’ve been working on. We’ve just been focusing on defense.
We’ve spent very little time in the preseason working on our offense. I felt that if we focus on defense, that can carry us until we get our offense where it needs to get to.”
