Sandra Arroyo led the Lady Vikings with 6 points and 3 rebounds, while Vada Demotte had 5 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals
“Windsor is a good team who is fundamentally sound. Looking at the teams they’ve played and scores, we didn’t do too bad of a job defensively, which is where we’ve been needing to pick up slack. Offensively we couldn’t hit a shot and I’m afraid to see what our shooting percentage ended up. They held Smithton and Stover to under 30 points and kept Crest Ridge down to 32 points, I believe. If you look at the Tipton/Windsor game, it wasn’t a high scoring game either. Offensively, I know we’ve got to start working on really moving the ball around and looking to get good shots. Good defensive teams will play solid man-to-man and if you’re not crashing the boards or hitting, you could be in for a long night.
“We head into the Leeton Tournament next week and we’ll get to play good teams there as well. We’re hoping to see Sweet Springs and possibly Crest Ridge or Smithton again. This is where good teams are made, by playing the better teams and knowing that if you don’t go out and play 100 percent, another team will. Nobody said that growing wasn’t going to hurt. We just need to suck it up and decide that we want to and will play ball with any of these teams, or at least battle from start to finish,” commented head Lady Vikings coach Manuel Lujan.
The varsity Lady Vikings travel to Leeton on Monday for a tournament and then to Green Ridge on Feb. 3, joined there by the boys team and JV teams.
