Conant girls basketball coach Dan Travers believes playing in the competitive Mid-Suburban West prepares his team for games outside the league. Our conference schedule prepares us for our nonconference games," he said. "We just have to come out and play Cougar basketball." Cougars basketball is always about defense. "Our main goal is defense," said Cougars sophomore guard Sidney O'Keeffe. "That's what we focus on the most." That focus sure surfaced in Saturday's nonconference game against visiting Lake Park. The Cougars limited the Lancers to 1 field goal in the first quarter and their offense took care of the rest en route to a 53-28 victory.
