The NCHS girls basketball team had four home games for the Tiger Jamboree last weekend and was able to get a victory in three of them. Harrison came to Lusk Thursday and matched NCHS with intensity and baskets-down just 23-18 at the half. The Lady Tiger defense held the visitors to just 11 second half points in the 49-29 win.

The Thunder Basin team that visited Lusk was full of athletic, skilled players that gave NCHS fits all game. Lusk led by a slim 27-26 margin at the break but the Lady Bolts wouldn’t go away. Too many missed free throws and easy chances allowed the visitors to slip away with the 49-43 final score.

Saturday afternoon Minatare’s small but scrappy team kept up with NCHS for the first quarter but a pair of Sturman treys pushed it to 31-17 at halftime. The defense got stingy again in limiting the visitors to just eight second half points in rolling to the 64-25 win.
