Not much has gone wrong for the Guyer girls basketball team lately.

Since dropping a game to Keller back on Jan. 19, the Lady Wildcats haven’t lost a game, including Tuesday’s demolition of crosstown foe Ryan to clinch a share of the District 5-6A title with that aforementioned Keller team.

After the game, head coach Andrea Robinson cited that Keller loss as the turning point in her team’s season as the Lady Wildcats have been an offensive juggernaut ever since. On Tuesday, they had two 20-point quarters including a 27-point first quarter that ended the game shortly after it began.

But on Wednesday, Keller got the best of Guyer one more time.

The teams split the regular-season meetings, which resulted in the co-championship. In these instances, coaches can decide to flip a coin for seeding in the playoffs or they can play a game for seeding while they’d still share the district title.

Robinson wanted to play, feeling her team has a hot hand at the moment. Keller wanted nothing to do with playing another game before the postseason begins next week, and Keller won the flip to flip for seeding, then won the flip for the top seed.

That means Guyer will be the second seed from 5-6A and that gets the Lady Wildcats a matchup with Flower Mound on Tuesday at Lake Dallas with a 7 p.m. tipoff against the nation’s top player in 6-4 post Lauren Cox, who’s signed with Baylor.

It’s a big test, for sure, but the way the Lady Wildcats are scoring the basketball right now with their trio of point guard Lauren Heard, Indiana-bound forward Bre Wickware and sharpshooting guard Sydney Meador will have them in just about any game for the long haul.
