Van Alstyne Fall Basketball Tips Off

With football, volleyball and cross-country in full swing, who could sniff out a September basketball game ?

A confirmed hoops junkie could and to that we plead, nolo contendere, a Latin phrase meaning “no-look pass.”

Team’s from Bland, Celina, Denison, Gunter, Leonard, Melissa and Pottsboro are joining Van Alstyne in this fall basketball league.

The Lady Panthers made a late rally to edge Denison, 32-29 in their opener on Sept. 16. Trailing going into the final minutes, a 3-pointer by Jayden Howell, an inside bucket by Allison Hensley and a layup by Ashley Burts got the game tied at 26-all.
