Courtney was cleared to play that morning so we got her back for this game.
“However, Ashlynn went down in the second quarter with a sprained ankle and will be out this week. She will miss our first district game with
Castleberry but should be back for Lake Worth (on Jan. 7).
“I was extremely pleased with Ashlynn’s play. She was having a great tournament for us, producing points and rebounds.”
The Lady Rams opened the tournament with a 64-48 loss to Hereford. For the first time this season Bullock led the team in scoring as she poured in 16 points.
“After five days off for Christmas and no practice, we played a pretty good game,” Holman said “In the first half we were able to create a lot of offense and did some things we haven’t done all year.
“We got tired in the fourth quarter as I only had nine girls and Hereford was running 14 in and out the whole game.
“Even though we lost, I was pleased with what we did and was glad to see some scoring from several different players.”
Also scoring were Ragland with 10 points, Robinson with nine, Santibanez and Carson Couger, each with four, Scarlett Eaton with three and Rivera with two.
The Lady Rams fell in the third-place game to City View, 39-37. Bullock led with 13 points while Ragland added 12.
“We played really well the first half and controlled the game pretty well,” Holman said. “It was one of those game where we came out after half time and couldn’t do much of anything. We didn’t score in the third quarter until 1:10 left.
“I was very proud of the kids for battling in the final quarter. We had a final shot with three seconds left and it fell short to tie it up. It was a disappointing loss for us.
“We needed those two wins in a row and a third place finish to take us into district play. We really missed Ashlynn on the boards in this game, but Kera Harrison played in her spot and did a great job for us.”
Also scoring were Peña and Harrison, each with four, and Rivera and Eaton, each with two.
