With a 3 – 6 start to their 2012-13 season, the Melcher-Dallas Saints’ girls basketball team has been plagued by off-shooting. The Saints’ girls are shooting 27.8 percent from the field and their free throw percentage is just under 46 percent. Head coach, Jon Suntken, said that this upcoming break for the holidays should do his team some good as far as not thinking about basketball is concerned. Suntken also mentioned that his girls have been thinking too much about their shots and passing up on too many open looks. After the vacation, Melcher-Dallas will play at Lamoni and against Twin Cedars before playing in the Bluegrass Conference tournament.
