On Saturday night at home, the girls battled Wibaux. The game was close for most of the contest, but early in the fourth quarter the Longhorns took a double-digit lead. CCHS went into a full court press and trimmed the deficit to 2 points, but couldn't complete the comeback for the win. The Dogs attempted 9 more free throws than the Longhorns and shot a better percentage (75 percent) at the free throw line than the Longhorns (53 percent).

Blue also shot seven more two-point field goals and 5 more three-pointers, but only made 26 percent of their shots while Wibaux made 42 percent of theirs. The Dogs had 32 total rebounds, 13 of which were offensive, while Wibaux had 24 (6 offensive). Heather LaBree led CCHS in points with 21; Tyra O'Connnor led in rebounds with 8.
