State semifinals Lady Bulldogs dig early Girls Continued game a little bit." The teams mostly trad- ed baskets in the third quar- ter. Lovell took a 10-point lead on a fast-break bas- ket by Erin Robertson and a slashing move by Korit- nik, but Southeast rallied to cut the lead to six, 22-16, before a follow jumper by Koritnik and a three-point. play by Anderson helped the Lady Bulldogs lead 27- 18 after three. Lovell built the lead to 12 early in the fourth peri- od on a pass from Walker to Robertson and a free throw by Robertson, but South- east made a final push, cut- ting the lead back to eight before a pair of aggressive drives by Anderson boosted the Lovell lead back to dou- ble digits. Lovell worked the clock the last three minutes of the game and a pair of free throws by Walk- er with 1:17 left helped seal the victory. "Mykel hit some shots," Geiser said. "They didn't have anyone who could match up with her." Lovell didn't shoot well - 27 percent from the field - but Southeast was even colder, shooting just 20 per- cent. The Lady Bulldogs hit just eight of 15 free throws, Southeast seven of 10. Koritnik led Lovell with 10 points and five re- bounds. Anderson added 9 points, Walker 6 points and six rebounds. Stephanie Green also pulled down five boards. The win propelled the Lady Bulldogs into the state semifinals, where they met the Big Horn Lady Rams Friday afternoon at the Events Center.

Robertson added 8 points and five rebounds, Geiser 7 points. "All year, Stepha- nie has stepped up in big games," Geiser said. "Erin also had a big game with her points and on defense. "I'd like to play them (Big Horn) again if we brought our A game. It would be a great game. I think you could put four teams in a hat - Big Horn, Tongue River, Lovell and Wyoming Indian- and, de- pending on who brought their A game, could win a state championship. This weekend Tongue River brought their A game." Lovell shot 20.8 percent from the field, Big Horn 40 percent.

Big Horn came into the game as the two-time de- fending state champions and sporting a 27-0 record after defeating Kemmer- er 47-21 in the first round Thursday. Lovell came in at 21-5 after beating South- east in the opening round. Big Horn took a big early lead and held on for a 43-37 win. Lovell struggled early against the Lady Rams. Lovell trailed 2-1 ear- ly after a Karen Koritnik  free throw, but Big Horn scored the next 13 points to lead 15-1. Junior Kat- ey Van Hoosier scored 7 points during the run for Big Horn, and senior Cal- lie Crouse knocked down a three-pointer. '%Ve weren't stopping them defensively," coach Bob Geiser said. "They used a high pick and roll and we had too many play- ers standing around and watching them. Then we had to work (offensively) against all of that size and height (two 5-11 starters). We didn't move the ball like we have all year. "But we battled back. We could have laid down and completely quit down 15-1. But we fought back and got within six. We just put ourselves behind the eight ball early." With Big Horn up 15- 1, Katie Walker and Alys- sa Geiser finally broke the ice for the Lady Bulldogs, hitting back-to-back three- pointers as Lovell cut the lead to eight points, 15-7, at the quarter break. After a follow shot by Erin Robertson cut the lead to six at 15-9 early in the second period, a three- point play (power move and free throw) by Crouse and a bank shot by Angela LoGuidice boosted the Big Horn lead to 20-9. Robert- son responded with a buck- et on a pass from Korit- nik and Stephanie Green hit two free throws as the Lady Bulldogs trailed 20- 13. The two teams traded baskets after that, with Big Horn leading at half- time, 29-18. A transition bucket by Mykel Anderson and a three-point play by Green cut the margin back to six again, 29-23, but Big Horn scored the three points of the quarter to lead after three, 32-23. Big Horn built the lead to 13 early in the fourth quarter, but Lovell contin- ued to chip away as Jodi Walker scored in transition and Green drove the length of the court on an odd play where the Big Horn play- ers stood still following a missed free throw, perhaps thinking it was a two-shot foul, and watched as Green took off. Lovell continued to trail by 9-11 points un- til Big Horn experienced a few problems at the foul line in the final minute and the Lady Bulldogs trimmed the lead to five points in the final moments before falling by six, 43-37, never able to completely dig out of the early hole.
