Maya Bryant let her defense do the talking for the Bear River girls basketball team against visiting Vacaville on Dec. 7. The 5-foot, 8 inch senior guard/wing came up with five of her team-high seven steals in the second quarter in the Lady Bruins’ 55-52 win over the 2002 Sac-Joaquin Section Division II runners up. Bear River, the 2002 section Division III runner up, trailed by five points after the first quarter, but outscored the Lady Bulldogs 19-10 in the second stanza to take control. “She really turned the thing around for us with her play. She really played huge in the second quarter to get us back in it,” said Bear River head coach Duwaine Ganskie.

Tanya Noe was in the zone in the Nevada Union girls basketball team1s first-round Golden Valley Classic tournament game against Johansen (Modesto) in Merced on Dec. 6.
