South Decatur Girls Basketball

From Varsity Coach Tyler Johnson

The Lady Cougars opened up conference play on the road at Southwestern (Shelby) on Saturday night. 

It was a defensive battle in the first half with both offenses stymied by tough pressure. The Lady Spartans went into the break up 14-13.

Early in the 3rd quarter, the Lady Cougars took the lead 15-14, but not soon after relinquished the lead and fell behind 35-23 behind 7 points from Muck. 

The 4th quarter saw both teams trading baskets. The Cougars looked to pressure the Lady Spartans with a full court press, which caused several turnovers, but in the end the 3Q hole proved to be too deep to crawl out of.
