Basketball: Girls get down, unable to get back up

The ‘Belles (8-6), (1-1) took on the Tarleton basketball team Saturday, Jan. 15 and went down 47-65.

"We didn't do the things we needed to well enough in order to get the win," junior center Paige Weishuhn said. "We didn't play tough, nor play like we know we are capable of."

Weishuhn had five points and four rebounds and senior guard Camille Perkins led the team 14 points and eight boards.

"Tarleton is a very good team and we let their physical defense get to us," Head Coach Sally Brooks said.

Sophomore forward Lindsey Mahone had 10 points off the bench and freshman forward Karli Kellermeier finished with nine points.

The girls made 26.1 percent of their field goals and were down 20-30 at the half against the TexAnns (12-2), (2-0).

"What hurt us the most was our lack of toughness and lack of good decision making," Weishuhn said. "We gave up too many boards and too many great scoring opportunities."

There are 11 conference games left in the season and Coach Brooks said she thinks the team is still improving.

"I feel like we are continuing to get better," Brooks said. "We are going to compete every time we step on the floor.

This years ‘Belle squad has a lot of potential, Weishuhn said.

"We need to improve on both ends of the court," Weishuhn said. "We are nowhere close to being as great as we know we can be. We have to improve mentally as well, such as [have] trust in and have confidence in each other like we have shown in previous games."

The next home game for the ‘Belles is Saturday, Jan. 22 at 5:30 during the ASU True Blue Campaign.
