With a current undefeated district record, the Coppell boys basketball team plays Hebron at a home game tomorrow for its seventh District 6-6A match up.


The Cowboys are not changing their preparation methods or mindset entering Friday’s game.


“We try to keep the same routine and keep them going in the same direction for each game,” Coppell coach Clint Schnell said. “We simply tweak what we do for the part that we’re playing.”


Players know what to expect with the ample preparation the coaches have provided — in the form of film or otherwise.


“We know we have a target on our backs since we’re undefeated in district,” senior forward Carter Kryzak said. “We just have to be ready to defend and hit them first because we know they’re going to come out swinging.”


A running trend with the Cowboys is a tendency to take their time on offense. However, based off the previous game against Irving MacArthur, time is a luxury they cannot afford.


“In the last game, we struggled and got sped up by our opponent, and we know that Hebron will want to push the pace this game,” Kryzak said.


Tipoff is at 8 p.m. Friday in the Coppell High School arena. Follow the action on Twitter @SidekickSports.
