NSA, the No. 4 seed, will take on Steward School at 7 p.m. Thursday at Norfolk Christian. The Lady Saints hosted Steward School back in January and took a 48-23 loss. However, they believe if they do the things that they do well, there could be a different outcome this time.

“The most important thing we have to do is play as a team,” Brown said. “We have to come in the game with a mindset determined to win. We also have to play good defense and get rebounds while limiting our turnovers, and we should be fine.”

“We have to make sure we are playing good defense, and we are executing what we do offensively efficiently,” Giles said.

If NSA defeats Steward School, the Lady Saints will play in the TCIS championship game at 4 p.m. Saturday at Norfolk Christian.
