After domination at the North Daviess Invite, the Tecumseh girls' basketball team is touting an undefeated 8-0 record.

The Lady Braves took a strong win over 3A Heritage Hills and carried the success into Saturday's invitational at North Daviess for a 62-8 win over Rock Creek Academy and a 52-31 win over the hosts. The wins put Tecumseh at 8-0 on the season and at the helm as the team to beat.

In addition to already knocking off two sectional opponents and two PAC opponents, the team is on track to make big waves this season.

But, head coach Adam Lubbehusen said the team is working to take the season one game at a time.

"It doesn't matter what our record is, we're still 0-0 at the start of the game," he said.

Even though the team is working to stay humble, Lubbehusen said the players are stepping up to challenges and playing together when it's tough.

"Sharing the ball is hard when you have six kids who can lead in scoring," he said.

But, the Braves are taking strides on the court together as they gear up for challenges in the upcoming weeks. Lubbehusen said the team won't look too far ahead, but will focus on challenges as they come.

"You can't look too far ahead or a team will slip up on you and beat you," he said.

The Lady Braves faced PAC opponents Forest Tuesday after press time. The Braves started the week tied with Forest Park and Tell City with two conference wins so far this season.

Lubbehusen said a goal for the season is to take the PAC title, but it will take focus to get there.

"To win the PAC we'll have to take one step at a time," he said. "[Tuesday] is just step three in the PAC."

The Braves will now gear up for Perry Central Thursday night on the road at 7 p.m. and will take a week off before taking on Tell City at home on Thursday, Dec. 13, at 7 p.m.
