The Big Spring Lady Steers experimented a little bit in their 69-22 thrashing of Pecos Tuesday in Steer Gym.
In 10 games, head coach Mark Warren has already found out a lot about this year's squad. But he wants to know how versatile his offense can be no matter if defenses run man-to-man or the zone.
“I thought it would be a good night just to work on things just to see what's our best zone offense, what's our best press — we changed our presses up a little bit,” he said. “Just a lot of fun. It was a good game with everyone getting to play a lot.”
So, Big Spring (8-2) showed a little bit of everything offensively and defensively in Tuesday's win. Guards Valerie Ross and Mackenzie Stone shined with 17 and 16 points, respectively. Stone and Ross, usually lethal beyond the arc, combined for 6 3-pointers.
The first half was Pecos' undoing and mainly what Big Spring needed to comfortably put this one away. The Lady Steers went on a 9-0 run before the Lady Eagles scored their first basket. Pecos didn't score in the second quarter until the 49-second mark.
