Lady Trojans ready to guard the basket
Coach Hill reports….
The Lady Trojans really accepted our challenge of playing smarter in our game with Mansfield at home on Tuesday, Dec. 16th, this became the key to our win. We almost had no "dumb" fouls. We also only had 9 turnovers for the entire game, we were averaging 22 turnovers a game coming into tonight’s' game! We did an incredible job of taking care of the basketball, along with only having 9 turnovers we also had 13 assists tonight which matches our season total!
Vetta Maynard did a good job of both getting our fast break started and finishing on the break. Whitni England also the break going numerous times with many steals. Marci Nelson, Hailey Ellsworth and Abby Bridgewater did a great job on the boards. Verna LaCourse played much better tonight securing every rebound that she pulled down! Angelica Suarez played another great game until she tore her finger nail. Veronica Vanderholm hit two nice jump shots. Mindy Neal gave us a lot of good minutes in both the first and second halves.

Sierra Miller makes the free-throw
Cheyanne McFadden came in and did great job handling the ball from the point. Sierra Miller came straight off the bench to make a free-throw!
I asked Sierra if she wanted to make a free-throw, when Angelica got hurt, and she looked and at me and smiled and said, "YES!"
Overall this was a great game with a lot of improvement.
We are off until December 29th and 30th when we will play Okanogan and Almira-Coulee-Hartline at the Waterville Christmas Tournament.
