The Jena Lady Giants started district play a couple of weeks ago by playing the Buckeye Lady Panthers at home. The Lady Giants were looking to start strong in district play with a win. The Lady Giants have played well against the Lady Panthers the last couple of years as they have beat them 4 times in the last 2 years. Things would be no different this time around as the Lady Giants would start out with a 23-14 lead going into halftime.
The Lady Giants did an excellent job of taking care of the basketball and limiting their turnovers. The Lady Giants also played well on defense as they used their 2-3 zone to force the Lady Panthers to take a lot of contested long range shots. The Lady Giants would continue playing well in the 2nd half as they would go on to win the game 52-37.
