The Boys team started the year nationally ranked. Their motto is "Chasing greatness" and that's just what they plan to do as they cruise toward their second straight playoff appearance.

Memorial junior guard, Drew Steffe proclaimed, "This year I think we can go all the way. I really do."

The two teams will go as far as their two stars will take them.

Senior Jasmyn Lott has committed to UNLV. She explained, "I can just enjoy this season. Enjoy my friends and enjoy this last year."

Steffe enjoyed his recent to Lubbock so much he just committed to Tech. In his words, "The fans are crazy down there. I'm gonna go down there and do really well."

Coach Gibson said, "The kids get it. They know the goals. They know the expectations and they're just rocking out right now."

And there's a chance we'll be rocking with the Frisco Memorial boys and girls, all the way through March.
