Girls HS Basketball: Mandan looks to knock off Legacy in top-5 showdown

The Mandan girls basketball team is ready for their first test of the new year on Friday.

The Braves will travel over to Legacy for a battle of top-five teams. Legacy comes with an undefeated record, while Mandan only has one loss on the year.

The Braves have looked impressive in their last three games. Their average margin of victory is 41 points. Despite those numbers, Mandan might be considered the underdog in this matchup.

“I’m excited for that game,” Mandan girls head coach Abby Thomas said. “I think it’s going to be a great matchup. Legacy is a really great team. They have some really good weapons. They are a little bit taller and lankier, kind of like us so I think we are going to match up well against them. I think it’s going to be a battle.”

This game will tip off Friday at 6 p.m. at Legacy.
