The Melcher-Dallas girls basketball squad won its second game of the season Tuesday night as the Saints defeated Murray 49-44. Coach John Sunkten has been stressing defense and how important it is for his team to hold opponents to below 50 points each games. He says if they can hold team to 50 or lower they give themselves a better shot at winning. So far in their five games, the Saints have held their opponents to below 50 points three times winning twice. Melcher-Dallas plays Moravia Friday night, whom the Saints lost to two weeks ago.
