Coppell basketball played Irving on Tuesday and collected a 78-53 victory. The teams faced off for the second time this season and the Cowboys remained victorious in both games.


“Putting in hard work really shows,” Coppell senior point guard Tariq Aman said. “We’re going to keep working hard and prepare everyday to continue the success we’ve had.”


Coppell took command from the beginning, ending the first quarter with a  28-7 lead. The Cowboys maintained the lead throughout and never trailed the Tigers.


“The team comes into each practice with a determined mindset,” Coppell junior guard Brandon Taylor said. “We believe it’s harder to stay at the top than it is to climb to the top and our rank in district creates a target on our backs, so we’re always looking to defend what we work for.”


The Cowboys are 9-1 and first in district. Irving is 0-9 in district.


“We’re going to keep building on our success and work on what needs improvement,” Coppell coach Clint Schnell said. “Our last four district games are going to be battles and we’re headed into our next game against Flower Mound with a tough mentality.”


Coppell basketball returns to action at Flower Mound tomorrow night at 8 p.m.
