Casper schools: 0-6 at state
And I'm a little tardy to the party here.
NC-Gillette girls underway.
And Dave, you forgot NC girls. Non-undefeated Casper schools 0-6 at state
Just sent you a text. Ignore.
NC with a quick 3-0 lead. Johnson fouled on first possession, hits 1-of-2. Then gets a steal and layup
And then Balster with a putback and it's 5-0 Fillies
I think Gillette has one shot attempt
Graney 3 rims out. Johnson on the board and she's fouled.
Check that, it was Balster on the board
And then she picks up a foul on the ensuing miss.
Gillette all kinds of issues offensively. Double-dribble ends another possession
That helps. Williams with 3 for Gillette
And Browing with the drive and she's fouled.
NC size proving to be a problem for Gillette
GJohnson to the line for NC after about five offensive boards for NC
K Johnson to the FT line for NC ... makes the 1st ... makes the 2nd
NC leads 13-3 and Gabby johnson draws the charge
Looks like a travel and an offensive foul on Williams on back-to-back possessions for Gillette
KJ on the putback and Holst needs a time out
KJ withe the put-back and Gillette takes a timeour
15-3 NC with 3:24 to play in the 1st
