Local Roundup: Tough D carries Bruins

Bear River girls basketball coach Jeff Bickmore told his team that for every point West Campus scored over 29, they would owe him sprints. The Bruins took his words to heart Wednesday and limited host West Campus to just 28 points in their 66-28 win.

“By halftime we had given up 17 points,” Bickmore said. “Our second string played the whole fourth quarter and only gave up five points. I was really happy with them.”

Nine of the 10 Bruin players scored in the victory, with junior center Lauren Juric finishing with a double-double. Juric scored 20 points to go with 10 rebounds.

Kristin Landre flirted with a double-double as well, scoring 11 points and grabbing eight boards. Tanya Copeland and Chandre Uno scored nine and seven points, respectively. Rachel Welz hit two 3-pointers for a total of six points.

The Bruins host Mesa Verde at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Mesa Verde was fourth in the Pioneer Valley League going into Wednesday night’s games.

Frosh: Grant 60, Nevada Union 41

Nevada Union’s freshman girls basketball team lost its first home game of the season, falling to Grant.

In a game which Miners coach Kate Dudley said was not reflected in the score, NU showed its effort with more offensive rebounds (20), than defensive (19).

“We’re outstanding on the boards,” Dudley said. “The unfortunate part: We were getting the boards, but the shots just would not fall.”

Elizabeth Gassman, who was one of four Miners to score six points, led the team with eight rebounds. Alexis Moser led the team in scoring with nine points on three 3s and had four steals, and Raeanna Serris contributed eight points. Hayden Fleenore, Emily Bearden and Maria Orellana were the other three players with six points.

Nevada Union (7-4 league, 17-7 overall) hosts McClatchy Friday.
