Birdville Men’s Basketball team not able to excecute in stretch *COLUMN*

FORT-WORTH:   – – –  You can’t just rely on small moments of greatness,  it’s the truth.    It’s how games are won.

The Hawks like they have so many-time’s before in the season, played some good defense through-out Saturday afternoon’s loss to Polytech at Alan Billingsley Field-House , but ultimately they  couldn’t find the answers offensively;  that is despite some late second half mini-runs.   Polytech, though the victors in what was a hard-fought game, on both -sides of  the floor did have some trouble closing this one out on the Hawks;  this is what helped the Hawks during these small moments of  greatness.

Basketball is a fragile sport, meaning that something as simple as one given up second-chance point could come to haunt your team later on in the game.

– – – The offense, though probably when it comes down to it in this game for Birdville is one of the key reasons why they lost this game, isn’t the only one.

– – –  The Hawks gave up too many second-chance’s, though luckily, not all of them were converted successfully for Poly, but you don’t  win  basketball games on luck.

– – – Rely on nothing, and play smart basketball those are the recipes for success in basketball.      Though, I do feel it should be reminded, this team is younger, and based on what I’ve seen in covering  them this season, they’ll be okay, they’ll learn.
