The Lady Bucks improved to 3-1 in district play and are now tied for second place in the district race with Clyde following Friday's 75-62 win over the Comanche Maidens.
The Lady Bucks saw all the extra free-throw shots in practice pay off as they sank 28 of their 35 attempts from the charity stripe for 80 percent.
“This was a good win for us as far as district standings go and I am proud of the girls for getting the win,” said Lady Bucks head coach Ky Graham. “But this was one of those games that we didn't really get to run many offensive sets because every time we tried to run our offense, they (Comanche) either gave us an easy shot or fouled us in the whole second half.”
“The girls really competed really well the entire game,” said Graham. “We had a little bit of a break down with our focus and turnovers in the first half, but we did a better job in those aspects in the second half. We rebounded the ball really well and a lot of our points came from the rebounds and put back points.”
The Lady Bucks held a 6-1 lead around midway through the first quarter, but the Maidens cut the lead to just one point (10-9) at the 2:24 mark in the first period.
Breckenridge held on to lead 18-17 at the conclusion of the first quarter.
After leading in the opening minutes of the second quarter, the Lady Bucks saw their lead dissipate and Comanche took the lead at 25-22 with a three-point basket at the 5:35 mark.
