Holman feels the Lady Rams can win the game if they stay consistent on offense.
“As long as we continue to shoot the ball well, I think we should have a great chance to win the game,” Holman said. “That would put us in position to do no worse than a tie for second place when district ends on Tuesday.”
The Rams want to hold their undisputed position in second place and can pretty much wrap up second place, although not mathematically, with a win over the Porcupines.
The Rams handled the Porcupines, 83-70, in a game that was not as close as the score indicates. Despite the win earlier in district play, Rams head coach Aaron Pappas said he expects Springtown to play its best game, and he added that the Porcupines play well at home.
“This is a really important game for us,” he said. “It is hard to go on the road and beat a good team like Springtown, and I am sure they are looking to even up the race for second place.
“They are hard to beat at their place, and they will have a rowdy group of fans and I am sure it will feel like a playoff atmosphere. They will be more comfortable playing at home in front of their fans.
“We will have to be ready to go from the tip.”
Pappas said his team will have to limit its turnovers and play the same tough defense that has carried them to a 5-1 district mark.
“We are going to have to minimize our mistakes and take advantage if or when they make mistakes,” he said. “We are going to tweak some of our game plan, because they are well coached and I am sure they will be ready for anything we throw at them.”
