The Lady Steers of Big Spring made quick work of Monahans Tuesday night, grabbing a decisive 67-35 win on Monahans' home court.
Ambra Hill got back to the form Lady Steers fans saw early in the season, scoring a game-high 17 points for Big Spring. Though the game went a full four quarters, it was pretty much decided after the first frame, as Big Spring exploded out to a 17-4 lead. Then, seemingly to make sure their point was taken, the Lady Steers lit up the scoreboard for 25 points in the second, while holding Monahans to seven.
Logan Yarbar drained 13 points in the championship game and the Big Spring Lady Steers came back totown this weekend with a 63-26 win over Kermit and the tournament championship.
Big Spring went 4-0 in the tournament, with Bridgett Tuitt receiving All-Tournament honors and Mackenzie Stone taking the 3-point shootout championship for the Lady Steers.
