Channelle Alcott tries to wrestle the ball away from Rapid City Christian’s Marissa Heard during the team’s Feb. 5 game against the Comets. The Wildcats had trouble with Heard when she was on her feet, as she poured in 26 points in the game.

 

The Custer High School girls basketball team lost its 12th game in a row last Friday night in Belle Fourche, falling to the Broncs 50-36.
The teams were tied at 28-28 at the half, but it was another bad third quarter in which the ’Cats were outscored 13-4, that the game got away from Custer.
“The third quarter we didn’t come out ready, and we didn’t transition as well as we should have,”â��head coach Stephanie Ornelas said.â��“We did a good job of shutting down their offense (in the first half).”
Sam McNeel was the team’s leading scorer in the loss with 11 points.
“Offensively, we couldn’t miss a basket in the first half,”â��Ornelas said.â��“The second half we couldn’t buy a basket. We got impatient when the shots didn’t fall and started rushing.”
On Feb. 5, it was a second-half defensive collapse that was the team’s undoing, as it was outscored 27-9 on the way to a 53-31 loss to the visiting Rapid City Christian Comets.
The team had no answer for Christian’s 6-0 center Marissa Heard, who scored nearly half of her team’s points in the game, hitting for 26, most of which came from point-blank range.
