The McEachern (0-0; 0-0) girls basketball squad is gearing up for a 2013-14 title run with a scrimmage against Douglas County (0-0; 0-0). Following the scrimmage game the Lady Indians- 2011-12 Georgia 5A champions (highest class in Georgia that year), will shift their focus to Cobb County rivals North Cobb (0-0; 0-0) and Marietta (0-0; 0-0) before traveling to Norcorss before the month of November is out.
Norcross (0-0; 0-0), winners of 3 of the last 4 state championships behind now North Carolina starting forward Diamond DeShields, churns out talent and produces stars in Women’s basketball. McEachern defeated Norcross in the 5A semifinals in 2011 on their way to a 33-0 finish and the state title, the only year Norcross and DeShields did not win the basketball title in Georgia-Norcross defeated McEachern at home in the regular season that year.
Standout point guard T’ea Cooper- who once committed to North Carolina as an 8th grader, has pulled back on that commitment and is keeping her options open as she enters her junior season.
“We have a lot to work to do as well as getting in basketball shape that McEachern basketball is accustom to,” McEachern head coach Phyllis Arthur said.” “Still knocking out some kinks.”
McEachern girls are nationally known to be a basketball team that gets up and down the floor and playing pressure defense. The Lady Indians won their title game by 33 points over Hillgrove playing that style of ball the entire game and year and played in the Rose Classic in New York last season.
The Lady Indians are ranked No.20 in the Max Preps National Preseason poll.
