The 2013-2014 high school basketball season is beginning to wind down as the teams go into their last month of their regular season games. The season started off slow for the teams, but they have shown improvement as the season as gone on and are preparing for the tournaments at the end of Febuary. Here is a look into how the teams are doing so far this season.
The Logan County Lady Cougars have a season record of 7-10 so far this season. The Lady Cougars had a slow start to the season after going 0-8 before the Christmas break. The Lady Cougars would turn their season around in the Christmas Classic after their first win against the Middlesboro Lady Jackets. The Lady Cougars have only lost two games in the last nine games they have played. Some of those wins were big for the Lady Cougars, including a 35 point win over Russellville and a 22 point win over Hopkins County Central. Their latest win was a close 39-34 over the Todd County Central Lady Rebels.
The Logan County Cougars have a season record of 3-8 so far this season. The Cougars had a rough start to the season after going 0-7.
