There were several story lines from the Lady Blues 42-35 win over Jacksboro Friday, Dec. 20, in Poolville.
One of the more obvious was the game that rising star Madison Farmer had with 25 points, shooting well over 50 percent.
In fact, Farmer made five of her seven three-point attempts, four of her six field goal attempts and both of her free throw attempts.
Farmer also had four steals, and despite turning the ball over eight times, she provided the bulk of the Blues offensive firepower in the win.
Another big event was the play of newcomer Lanna Plaster.
Plaster came away with five points, four rebounds, four steals and only one turnover in her first varsity experience.
Macey Spears reeled in a team-leading 11 rebounds to go along with three steals.
But perhaps the most interesting development from the win over Jacksboro was the fact that the Blues were able to overcome 31 turnovers to get a win.
Of course, it helps that Graham shot 50 percent as a team from the three-point line.
It also helps that they pulled down 30 rebounds.
If the Lady Blues can shoot that well and improve upon their turnovers, they could become an extremely dangerous group heading into District 5-3A play.
“We were sloppy, but we came away with the win, which is good,” head coach Lindsay Griffin said. “We’re continuing to move in the right direction, and I have enjoyed seeing the improvements in the players.”
The Blues will play in the Breckenridge Tournament on Dec. 27 and 28.
District play begins on Tuesday, Jan. 7, against the Iowa Park Hawks at the Graham High School gym.
