Baker girls extend win streak to 10

Ten in a row and counting.

That’s how many straight games the Baker girls basketball team has won after posting a 52-35 non-league win at Nyssa Tuesday.

“Ten in a row and 12 of our last 13,” said Baker coach Tim Smith. “The girls just believe in themselves, and that’s half the battle. They’re playing well right now.”

The Bulldogs didn’t start out well against Nyssa, but righted things quickly. Baker led just 7-6 after one period, then increased its lead to 25-16 at halftime.

“We came out a little on the flat side,” Smith said. “We decided real quick that (Nyssa) was ready to play and then we stepped it up.

“We haven’t had a slow start for a while. But from the second quarter on we played real well,” he said. “We also had some foul trouble and we haven’t experienced that for a while either.”

The foul trouble made Smith call to his bench earlier than usual — with positive results.

“Our bench came in and played a solid game,” Smith said. “Ashley Shively had a great game with five points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals.

“And our starters all had at least seven points. It’s nice to get that even scoring, and a lot of contributions from all the girls.”

Mackenzie Warner led the Bulldogs with 12 points. Whitney Phillips added eight, Savannah Daly seven, Tara Talbott seven points, eight rebounds and four steals, and Dallas Defrees seven points and nine rebounds.

Baker returns to Greater Oregon League action Friday when the Bulldogs host Mac-Hi at approximately 6 p.m.
