WARDSVILLE, Mo. - It was easy to figure out the problem for the Blair Oaks girls basketball team last season. It just wasn't quite as easy to fix.

The Lady Falcons are using their camp this week to work on something that dragged them down a little bit last year: the offense.

"That's a big struggle," Blair Oaks coach Leroy Bernskoetter said of his team's offense. "They're not ready to catch and shoot and make their mind up. That's what we're going to work on. We've already started to work on shooting the heck out of (three-pointers)."

The Lady Falcons, who have about 70 students in grades 4-12 in camp this week, had plenty of open looks in last year's 15-11 season, they just didn't always fall.
