New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 14, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas Sports Day Bastrop Lady Beans forage for porridge come away with win By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer Everybody has heard about the tale of Goldilocks and the three bears But the Canyon Cougarettes can tell you a tale of the 11 Bastrop Lady Bears who came into Cougar Den on Friday night look ing for more than their porridge Unfortunately the Canyon Cougarettes could not close the book on this tale They had to play and relive every minute of it in an 8339 defeat at the hands of the Lady Bears who sit atop District 284A standings at 30 221 overall Coming in we knew their forecourt was their Canyon coach Tina Duncan said referring to Bastrops full court pressure defense and play of guards Kim Mills and Crystal Flowers They are a team that does not miss anything and they play a very physical game Like I told our team it is good when you can score nearly 40 points against As the tale of the game continued the Cougarettes learned these Bears were small but very fast physical and menacing It would be an understatement to say that Bastrops full court press was unbearable for the Cougarettes to han dle Every time a Cougarette player drib bled or tried for an outlet pass after a rebound three Lady Bears would harass her into making a bad pass turning the ball over or giving the Lady Bears an opportunity to steal the ball and go in for a layup or make a trip to the foul line Canyon turned the ball over 44 times compared to Bastrops 2I turnovers 16 times in the third quarter The Lady Bears who average 24 steals a game swiped 26 steals Offen sively Canyon was able to attempt only 36 shots and made only nine field goals Bastrop coach Rick Pinson said the strategy of his team was to prevent post Elizabeth Weisman from getting the ball by putting tremendous pressure on the Cougarette front court We knew if they got their inside game going and got it to her Weis we would be in Pinson said We put enough pressure on them to prevent that from happening We have 11 players who can go out on the floor and wear down people very quick ly by pressuring and attacking the The strategy worked as Weisman Canyons leading scorer was held to eight points Guard Tanya Castilleja was the only Cougarette in double fig ures with 10 points Crystal Flowers who has a 17 point scoring average scored 21 points for the Bears Dee Dashay 10 points and Kim Mills seven points helped the Bastrop cause Bastrop was able to get many shot attempts with help of 26 offensive boards The Lady Bears lead from the very beginning going on an 185 run in the first quarter to go up 217 Canyon held on and got within 11 at 2413 in the second quarter HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Canyon s Elizabeth Weisman goes up for shot in the lane Friday night against Bastrop The Bears overwhelmed Canyon 8329 and stayed undefeat ed in District 284A The Lady Bears expanded their 15 point halftime lead to 40 points in the fourth quarter as the barrage of steals drives and five three pointers contin ued to hurt the Cougars In the third quarter the Lady B ears outscorcd he Cougarettes 299 and lopped it off by scoring 31 points in the final period while limiting Canyon to 12 points Under the circumstances Duncan believes her team did its best to stay in the game I was pleased that we stayed on the Duncan
