Lady Bulldog Heidi LaBree versus Wibaux on January 27th in Ekalaka

The Lady Bulldogs struggled early last Friday at home versus the Lady Longhorns from Wibaux, but came out strong in the third quarter and eventually went on to win, 52-34. CCHS was down 18-22 at halftime before outscoring Wibaux 18-4 in the third. The Lady 'Dogs had a tough night from the field, shooting 13 of 45 (29 percent) on two-point field goals and 3 of 21 (14 percent) from behind the arc. Wibaux didn't fare well either, going 6 of 27 (22 percent) and 2 of 7 (29 percent), respectively.

It was rebounding and taking care of the ball that really made the difference in the game for CCHS. Blue outrebounded the Lady 'Horns 37 to 19. Eighteen of the 'Dogs' boards came on the offensive end. CCHS also won the turnover battle by a wide margin, 9-20. Nasya O'Connor had 16 points to lead the offense.
