The ‘Belle basketball team took down Incarnate Word University, 53-49, Feb. 21, to give the team its sixth win in the last seven games.

"We didn't play great but we played with heart," sophomore forward Morgan Youngblood said. "Our shots weren't falling, but we did a good job of rebounding and hustling [along with] playing until the end."

Senior guard Camille Perkins led the ‘Belles with 15 points.

"I was very proud of the team on Saturday," Head Coach Sally Brooks said. "The win was a huge win and we really had to fight for it."

Sophomore forward Lindsey Mahone had finished with  11 rebounds and nine points. Sophomore forward Lindsey Youngblood added 13 points.

"This team just never gives up or gives in, even with all our injuries," Brooks said. "That is why with two games left in the season, we have already qualified for the conference tournament."

The ‘Belles play Midwestern State in Wichita Falls on Feb. 23 and end the regular season against Tarleton, Feb. 26.

"To win these next two games would give us a lot of confidence and momentum going into the tournament," Youngblood said. "We can't be satisfied, and we have to finish the regular season."

Coach Brooks said the girls' success this season has been a true team effort led by Perkins.

"To be successful in the tournament, we need to continue to play great defense and knock down some shots," Brooks said.
