Carlisle’s Lady Bison improved to 15-3 last week with a 58-10 hammering of Abundant Life.
The dominant Lady Bison led after one quarter, 18-5; at halftime, 32-5; and after three quarters, 55-8.
They put three players in double figures: Kylie Warren with 17, Blakely Ellis with 13 and freshman Shelby Hancock with 10.
“She’s starting to figure it out a little bit,” Buffalo said Monday.
Carlisle will play host to Palestine-Wheatley (0-13) on Thursday in the first meeting of the season.
“He’s a first-year coach having to coach all four teams,” Buffalo said. “I know they’re getting better and working hard. It will be an opportunity for us to get out and work on some different things and different lineups.
“It is one of those games that count, though, so we have to respect them when we step on the floor. It’s a division game for seeding for the district tournament.”
LISA Academy-North will visit Bison Arena on Friday. At press time, the Jaguars were 4-14, including a 74-23 loss to Carlisle in December.
Carlisle will visit Clarendon (4-7) on Tuesday, Jan. 23. The Lady Bison won the first meeting, 63-26.
“There’s no middle road,” Buffalo said of the conference. “It’s top-heavy and bottom-heavy. There are no average teams right now.”
The run of blowouts allows the Lady Bison to work on some things for the last stretch of the season.
“We’re developing depth and working on some different things on defense,” Buffalo said. “We’re getting a chance to get people more playing time. That’s the big thing right now. As we get closer to the post-season, I’m trying to see who reacts well in game-type situations.
“We can’t simulate in practice the pressure we see in some of those games. So you do the best you can and try to get better every day.”
The Hazen game, originally set for last week, has been rescheduled for Monday, Jan. 29.
