Rams, Lady Rams continue hoops action today on road

By TONY EIERDAM

Due to the recent ice storm, which shut down Mineral Wells High School for three school days and made area rural roads difficult for travel, the Mineral Wells Rams have not played a basketball game for the past eight days.

The Rams will finally get back on the court today with a non-district game at Fort Worth Country Day. Tip off will be at 6:30 p.m.

The Lady Rams were a little more fortunate. Even though there was not school on Tuesday, the Lady Rams (3-9) did travel to Graham that day and came away with an exciting 55-52 overtime victory.

The Lady Rams will continue non-district action at 6:30 p.m. at Brownwood. The freshman and junior varsity games will begin at 5 p.m.

But the Lady Rams – a team rebuilding and with a new coach and different system – need to play games, and last week played just a pair of games on Thursday at the Jacksboro tournament before the dangerous ice storm canceled the rest of the tournament.

“I hate the fact that we couldn’t play the whole tournament and the fact that we had to cancel our freshman/junior varsity tournament we were hosting,” Lady Rams head coach Leslie Holman said. “We have already had to cancel too many games and we haven’t even made it through half of the season.”

The Rams (4-3) were hoping to build on two wins Dec. 5 at the Jacksboro tournament, but like the Lady Rams did not get to finish the tournament as the ice storm wiped out the rest of pool play on Friday and all of Saturday’s bracket contests.

But the Rams got further bad news on Tuesday as hazardous road conditions forced the postponement of their scheduled game at Venus.

That game will be made up on Dec. 30 with the freshman game beginning at 1 p.m. followed by the junior varsity at 1:30 p.m. and the varsity at 3 p.m.
