Lady Bulldogs win 63-31 on Senior Night

Posted February 4, 2016 at 10:30 am

by Coach Beau Swopes

We came out against the Climax Springs Cougars and shot the ball extremely well from the outside.

They played a 2-3 zone. Typically you try to beat the zone down the floor and shoot the ball well from the outside to get them out of their zone. We did that.

I think we finished with 11 threes on the night. The girls all shot the ball extremely well. They defended well and rebounded well.

Kinli finished with 15 points. She had three 3s and really did a good job handling the ball. Kameron Schaaf finished with 17 which is right about her average. Hannah Kruckenberg did a good job for us defensively. She made a three from the outside. Cameron McPeak did a good job for us. She really stepped

    We played Eldon last Saturday afternoon at home.

    They are a good Class 4 team. I think they were 10 and 4 when we played them. We struggled with them last year. They really put it to us.

    We came out and played well right from the beginning. We shot the ball well. We moved the ball well. We took a five point lead into half time. We went back and forth the whole game and we were able to wind up

    by Coach Jeremy Barger

    The JV Tournament went very well overall. All teams were competitive and were exciting to watch. Nevada ended up winning the entire tournament winning each game with ease including the championship team against a good Ft. Scott team that included the tournament MVP.

    We started off the tournament as the 8th seed (last seed) and played the first seed in Butler. The ElDo boys came out firing on all cylinders and played a great game. The scoring was well balanced and was followed up

    Basketball Bulldogs beat Climax Springs

    by Head Coach Ryan Waters

    We won against the Climax Springs Cougars Monday night 71 – 53. We led a half 34-31. I told the players at half, I didn’t feel like we put much defensive pressure on them.

    In the second half, we came right out of the gate and scored 14 points in a minute and 30 seconds. That was really the difference in the game. The we settled to back and forth the rest of the game.

    High scorer was Riley Boyd with 18.

    VARSITY GIRLS NIP ELDON MUSTANGS – Varsity Bulldog Kinli Simmons, the high scorer in the game last Saturday against the Eldon Mustangs at home, brought the ball down court looking like she was protected by the Bulldog ghost. Head Coach Beau Swopes said of the 62-57 victory against a good opponent, “I thought we played pretty well for having a few days off from the gym due to weather. Offensively we moved the ball well and the girls really attacked the basket. Defensively we

    Last week we were in the Skyline Tournament. We started off on Monday night playing Fair Grove. They are pretty tough right now. They are ranked No. 7 in the state.

    We came out early and I thought we played pretty well. They were able to hit shots early on and they built a lead and we really just couldn’t ever come back from it.

    We didn’t shoot the ball extremely well and turnovers really got us at the
