D’backs upend Griz

From page A6 | December 16, 2013 |

Union Mine High’s varsity girls basketball program made quick work of Golden Sierra Thursday night, downing the Grizzlies 61-19 in preseason action.

Union Mine held Golden Sierra to seven points in the first half, while scoring at least 11 in each quarter.  Trisha Tolbert had a game-high 11 points for the hosts while Courtney Bruno dropped nine on the evening with Savannah Scott and Katie Parker contributing eight points each.

“In games like this one — when we are in a more relaxed and calm state — we’re able to think through situations and play together very well,” D’back coach Chris Del Rio said. “(We’ve had) three games this preseason where we were in 10-point deficits and you could feel us forcing things to happen and making mistakes on the court. I think a game like this will help our players realize how much they can accomplish when they’re in control of things mentally.”

For Grizzly head coach Ron Ebitson, the game was an opportunity to see what the team will work on going forward. With a slew of snow days and a busy preseason schedule, the team has had to work with a limited number of practices.

“I felt we played good defense, rebounded well,” Ebitson said. “We’re a smaller team and we need to work on our shooting, so we plan on relying on our defense to keep games in reach.”

Lindsay Dorosh contributed a team-high six points while teammate Kylie Bone had five and Rebecca Brown, Emily Alexander and Kristine Chiarrati had a field goal each to round out the scoring for Golden Sierra.

Golden Sierra out-rebounded their hosts on both ends of the court, pulling down 32 boards total to Union Mine’s 26.
