Lady Steers stage defensive clinic vs. Monahans

January 25, 2012

Quick basketball lesson: If you keep the other team from scoring, your chances for victory become ridiculously easy.

The Big Spring Lady Steers took that lesson to heart Tuesday, using ferocious defensive pressure to hound the Monahans Lady Loboes into submission en route to a 67-24 non-district basketball victory at Steer Gym Tuesday night.

Big Spring served notice from the start what kind of night it would been when the Lady Steers blanked Monahans in the first quarter — and it barely got better for the Lady Loboes from there.
