The basketball season opener is here for the Lady Mustangs and fans can expect a lot of energy from John Berkman’s first team.

“We’re blessed,’’ Berkman said of his roster that includes a good mix of talent including plenty of post players. The first-year Marble Falls head coach is not really worried about who starts, he’s interested in the intensity the team brings to the court.

Early practices and scrimmages have shown the Lady Mustangs will go full throttle. When they are on the court they’ll play solid defense and keep the ball moving on offense. Good game plan for a program that needs a good jump start.

Marble Falls opens its season tonight with a matchup against the Wimberley Lady Texans. Tip off is 6:30 p.m. at Max Copeland Gym.

For preview of the game please read Friday's Highlander.
