Since practice began in the preseason, the Lowell girls basketball team has worked tirelessly toward improving its fast-break offense.

For the first month of the season, the Cardinals focused exclusively upon pushing the ball upcourt. Even in midseason they must make a set number of fast-break layups during the first five minutes of practice or else suffer consequences.
