Nocona
Playing on a big stage at Kay Yeager Coliseum as part of the Wichita Falls Classic, the Nocona Lady Indians stayed undefeated as they dominated Millsap on Saturday.
The state-ranked Lady Indians beat down the Lady Bulldogs 75-27.
Nocona came in heavily favored as the currently second ranked team in the state in 2A according to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches poll. While Millsap is a bigger 3A program coming off a playoff appearance, the Lady Bulldogs proved to be no match.
The Lady Indians sprinted out to a 23-6 lead after the first quarter. Nocona had a bit of lax second quarter, winning by only a margin of 14-9 as it went into halftime up 37-15.
Coach Kyle Spitzer was able to keep his team playing hard in the second half despite the margin getting worse and worse as the game went along.
In the end, the Lady Indians won their most lopsided game of the short season 75-27.
Skyler Smith led the team with 22 points and 11 rebounds as she finished with a double-double. Meg Meekins was second with 16 points while dishing a team high seven assists and swiping six steals.
Avery Crutsinger scored a season high 14 points and Aubrey Kleinhans also scored in double-figures as she finished with 12 points. Jolie Rose added eight points off the bench.

Saint Jo
The Saint Jo Lady Panthers played in their second tournament of the season last week which they hosted and did well overall.
The Lady Panthers went 4-2 during the three days of games, winning big in the games they won and being competitive in their losses.
Saint Jo dominated its first three opponents during pool play. The Lady Panthers won by double-digits against Petrolia (60-31), Texoma Christian (61-22) and Electra (47-26).
Saint Jo then played Graford and suffered its first setback. The Lady Rabbits won a tight game 50-41 against the Lady Panthers to end pool play.
Saint Jo then had another setback in bracket play.
Playing against Tioga, the closest game of the tournament for the Lady Panthers did not go their way as they lost 61-56.
Saint Jo’s final game of the tournament came against Pretonwood North. The Lady Panthers were able to shake off the previous two losses and dominate private school Lady Lions 54-31 to end the tournament on a good note.

Prairie Valley
The Prairie Valley Lady Bulldogs had a tough tournament run at Chico last week.
The Lady Bulldogs went 1-3 overall as the team was stretched thin thanks to their lack of depth on the bench.
Prairie Valley started the tournament well by beating fellow 1A team Bryson in a low-scoring, but one-sided game 30-18.
The quality jumped when the Lady Bulldogs next played 3A Boyd. The Lady Jackets won 38-15.
Private school Victory Christian was the toughest game of the tournament for Prairie Valley as it lost 50-19.
The final game of the tournament was against host Chico. The 2A Lady Dragons won the low-scoring game 29-17.

Bellevue
The Bellevue Lady Eagles lost a tough game at Era on Friday night.
The 2A Lady Hornets won 56-40 against the Lady Eagles.
Bellevue was able to do some good things as its pressure defense caused a lot of turnovers for Era, but unfortunately the shots were not going in at the right times for the Lady Eagles.
Cirstin Allen led the team with 14 points, Brittany Gill had 12 points and Callie Martin had 11 points to add.
