Comanche boys win 10th straight

COMANCHE — For the first time in his coaching tenure at Comanche, Nick Price beat Plainview.

Price’s team flexed its defensive muscles to secure the 44-34 home victory Tuesday night. The coach said Plainview came into the game looking to slow down the pace and make it a defensive game. Comanche obliged, but with the energy the home team had on defense, the upset bid was denied.

The way that the whole lineup worked together to shut down the visitors impressed Price.

“Knowing when we should or shouldn’t help, just understanding the defense we’re running,” Price said. “Just everybody giving their best effort, all of that combined is making us a better defensive team.”

Comanche has won in many different ways this season. The 44 points were the least amount of points the Indians have had in a win this season, but they are also capable of shooting the lights out, scoring 77 in a win at Lone Grove. As the playoffs get closer, Price likes to see his team pulling out victories against different styles of play.

“It’s good for us to see all types of tempos because you never know in the playoffs,” Price said. “Even a team that you haven’t seen play like that might come out and play like that. You have to be ready to respond.”

It was the 10th straight victory for Comanche, its longest win streak of the season. Keeping that momentum going can only help the team.

“We want to keep building on it,” Price said “Right now our next goal is to try to win a conference title and in order to do that we need to win out.”

In order to do that, the Indians will have to beat what Price called possibly the toughest test of the season in No. 18 Kingston at home on Friday. It will be Comanche’s first time playing a ranked Class 3A team since it beat Sulphur 62-50 on Jan. 17.

“This is kind of a gut check to see where we are at and how we respond,” Price said.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
