I saw some basketball last weekend and it will be interesting to see where teams are at the end of the year.
The Lakeside Lady Panthers headed into the Thanksgiving break on a high note.
Facing Aquinas on Day 2 of the Grovetown Warrior Classic, the Lady Panthers (2-1) used a balanced attack to get by the Lady Fighting Irish (0-2), 33-22.
