Coming off a strong home outing in the Winnemucca invitational, The Varsity girl’s basketball team traveled to a tournament in Reno with hopes of not only improving on their 1-2 record but also improving on their skills.
The Bucks tipped the tournament off by playing against Damonte Ranch, a team that previously beat the Bucks in the Winnemucca invitational the week before. The Buckaroos had trouble getting anything going, which led to another loss against the Mustangs. “We couldn’t buy a basket the whole game, and that makes the game difficult. You start to fail to do the little things which eventually add up,” said sophomore Alyssa Jones.
The Bucks then faced off against The Buhach Colony Thunder. The Bucks played a better overall game, but couldn’t pull out the ‘W’.
“The game plan was to come out strong and play a solid four quarters. We definitely played a more solid game than the previous night, but we weren’t where we wanted to be,” said Jones.
In hopes of closing out the tournament with a win, the Bucks faced off against the Summerville Bears. The Bucks achieved their goal and pulled out the win, ending the tournament on the right foot.
“We played solid for four quarters, made shots, and executed the game plan really well. Everyone stepped up and played a part in the win,” said Jones.
The Bucks travel to Reno again Wednesday, as they play the North Valleys Panthers in their last non-conference game.
