1/15 GBB - Oroville
Lady Trojan Basketball Game Report
Final Score- Oroville 46 - Manson 23
Coach Kurt Toolson reports:
The Lady Trojans played a tough game against Oroville on Tuesday night. Led by six points each from Itzel and Raechel we jumped out to an early 12-10 lead after the first quarter. The girls made some nice passes and had several offensive rebounds for easy points. However, the Hornets really turned up the defense in the 2nd quarter and held us to only 2 points. They took a 10 point lead into the halftime locker room.
We started out strong again in the 3rd quarter, hitting our first 3 shots and closing the gap to 5 points after 3 minutes. The remainder of the game was an exercise in frustration as an invisible lid was placed over the basket and we just could not make shots. Oroville made a few 3 pointers as well as some nice fast break baskets to build their lead back up and put the game away.
The stats tell the story of the game as we missed 21 lay ins on the night and we finished shooting only 10-54. Unfortunately we were also out shot at the free throw line 9-2. On the positive side, we did have 14 offensive rebounds and 20 turnovers (which is a season low).
