Lockhart advanced to 4-0 after beating Luling, 60-49, on Nov. 20.

“I am very proud of how we are playing,” said Lockhart Head Coach Collin Hart. “art said. “We always talk to our guys about how it’s we not me, and they have been buying into that. We are competing on both ends of the floor and playing for each other. Everyone on our team has a role, and they are all starring in their roles. We are eager to continue to get back to work to continue to improve daily both on and off the court.”
