JACKSON, Wyo. — Head coach Jason Huggins had high hopes for his girls as they made the long journey to Driggs, Idaho yesterday seeking a bit of redemption for an earlier loss on their home court to the Teton Redskins less than a week before.
Those hopes were quickly dashed.
Teton got off to a 14-0 start and never looked back as Jackson struggled in all aspects of the game. The uptempo offense slowed as shot after shot would not fall for Jackson, causing them to second-guess every decision with the basketball.
Defensively, the Lady Broncs’ usual tenacity was negated by a Teton offense that whipped the ball around so rapidly and precisely that there was never opportunity to pounce on any one player and create turnovers. Time and again, Teton broke the full-court press with ease, and moved the ball so quickly to find the open player that the Broncs found themselves chasing the game all night.
Both teams headed into last night’s game off wins. For the Redskins, they were on a 6-game winning streak dating back to December 6. Jackson was fresh off its first victory of the season, a road win over the Pinedale Wranglers last weekend.
Jackson has played better basketball than what they showed yesterday, but credit the Redskins. Teton earned this one, holding serve on their home court and thrashing the Lady Broncs 62-28. Jackson’s record falls to 1-9. Teton improves to 10-3 on the season.
