Next Up: State Quarterfinals

Myers Park High School's girls basketball team has advanced to the state quarterfinals after defeating Northern Guilford, ending their 19-game win streak with a 56-51 victory. The Mustangs will now face Watauga on Friday.

In Charlotte, the team made crucial adjustments to their defense in the fourth quarter, allowing them to contain Northern Guilford and secure the win.

“We went to a face-guard at the start of the fourth quarter, and stuck with it,” Myers Park coach Barbara Nelson said. “We wanted them to take longer shots, slow them down. We went to whatever our plan was and stuck with it.” Myers Park improved to 27-2. “In the fourth (quarter),” Nelson said, “we did a pretty good job defensively, but we need to capitalize on our chances to score. When we make layups and free throws we win. We turn it into a learning opportunity by playing hard. Keep trying, and do the best that we can."
