HOOP WRAP: Lady Bears blast PN-G in rugged affair

LITTLE CYPRESS — Outhustling Port Neches-Groves in a rough-and-tumble affair at The Bear Cave Friday night, the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Lady Bears kept themselves in the hunt for the fourth-place playoff spot out of District 20-4A by taking down the Lady Indians 72-50.

The game featured 54 total foul with a lot more that probably could’ve been called.

LC-M coach Ricky Ryan watched his crew place four players in double figures  and the Lady Bears (12-18, 4-7) forced the Lady Indians (1-10 in district) into 38 turnovers and outrebounded PN-G 53-49.

Senior Kayleigh Roy led the LC-M arsenal with a double-double as she muscled her way to 15 points while yanking down 11 rebounds.

Feisty shooting guard Casey Webster had a big night as well, pouring in a team-high 16 points while snagging five boards.

Freshman post Sheridan Rogers chimed in with 13 points and six rebounds. Senior forward Tara Thompson sparked the Lady Bears early on with eight of her 12 points coming in the first period as LC-M darted out to a 19-8 cushion at the end of the quarter. Thompson finished with 12 points before leaving with an injury in the fourth quarter.

Lady Bear post Tori Thompson got in on the act as well, scoring five points while also yanking down a game-high 13 rebounds. Guard Grace Chen had seven points and five rebounds while Josie Nimitz had four points, five boards and played well defensively.

Kelsey Collier led the Lady Indians with a double-double as she rang up 18 points to go along with 10 rebounds. She scored 13 of her points in the second half.

Ricki Winkler contributed eight points and five rebounds. Taylor Brewer collected six points and seven boards while Ryanne Lunceford added five points and nine rebounds.

The Lady Bears led 33-20 at intermission. The Lady Indians got as close as 11 points twice in the third quarter but LC-M held them at bay.

Roy and Rogers combined for 15 inside points after the half while Webster scored seven of her points in the final stanza.

The squads combined to shoot 81 free throws.

The Lady Bears went 22-of-41 from the charity stripe while PN-G converted just 19-of-40.

LC-M faces another crucial game Tuesday when they welcome in the Nederland Lady Bulldogs. LC-M still has Nederland, state-ranked Beaumont Ozen, and Lumberton left on their schedule. If they can defeat both Nederland and Lumberton — both games are at home — then they would make the playoffs as the fourth seed out of District 20-4A.
