#6 Ranked Mavs take on #4 Ranked Cavs Friday


The Mauldin Lady Mavs went 2-1 in the tough Upward Classic tournament at Dorman last week and finished a very proud 3rd. Playing a very strong Bishop McNamara out of Maryland in the opening game our Mavs did the school proud by defeating them 62-56. This team easily won their other two games in the tournament and returned home having only one loss in South Carolina courtesy of the Mauldin Mavericks. Next up the Mavs battled the #4 ranked, undefeated 5A team from Georgia, the very impressive Parkview Panthers. The incredible depth and team speed of Parkview got the best of the Mavs as our girls suffer their first loss of the season 57-45. Next up the Lady Mavs battled the 2010 Upward Champions, Butler High out of the Charlotte area and defeated them 66-50 for 3rd place in the tournament. Morgan Alexander made the all-tournament team for the Lady Mavs. The girls returned home on Tuesday and played Riverside in a region game winning 52-40. Our girls are now 12-1 on the season and 2-0 in the region. Next up we travel to Dorman to play the 11-1 Cavaliers Friday night. Going into this game both teams have only lost to the Parkview Panthers from Georgia. According to Max Preps Dorman is ranked #4 in the state and our Mavs are ranked #6. The Lady Cavaliers have alot of depth and team height and will be very tough to defeat on the campus of Dorman University.
