Ranked 82nd in the nation, 2nd in the state and 1st in the district, the Lafayette Lady Lions searched for their 24th consecutive win this season Friday night.

Rest assured, they found it.

Lafayette hosted the Carencro Lady Bears who, despite sitting in second place in 5A District 3 with 10-5 overall and 4-1 district records, lost to the Lady Lions earlier in the season 53-28. Lafayette’s Friday-night, 43-30 win sent out a stronger message — one demanding respect.

And with players like point guard Jasmine King (20), who had six points in the first quarter with a perfect shooting percentage, and Adrienne Prejean (14) it’s hard not to sit back and admire the Lady Lions.

Lady Bear point guard Julia Willis (13), who is known for her skill, speed and heroics, did not score in the loss. The Lady Lions suffocated the Lady Bears all game with a relentless half-court press. Willis (13) could not find a rhythm.

Three minutes remained in the first quarter when Carencro made its first bucket. The Lady Lions had already scored 14 points.

Lafayette head coach Cade Methvin is currently in his second season with a 52-4 all-time record with the Lady Lions.

This season’s performance impresses and astounds, but the fact that Lafayette has been without center Sabre Sarradet (13) and will be until the playoffs speaks volumes about the depth on Lafayette’s bench.

Carencro falls to 10-6 overall and 4-2 in district. Lafayette now leads the all-time series 11-0.

Neither the win nor the score surprised anyone Friday night, but Lafayette hope it garnered more attention.

The Lady Lions are roaring. Lafayette, listen up.
