Defense leads Baker girls to win

Baker braved icy roads to reach Emmett, Idaho, Tuesday afternoon, and it paid off in a 49-33 win in the non-league girls basketball game.

“It probably took us about 20 minutes more than usual to get to Emmett,” said Baker coach Tim Smith.

But once there, Baker’s defense was red hot.

“The girls played darn good defense throughout the game,” Smith said.

Despite the defensive effort Baker led just 32-31 after three quarters. Then the Bulldogs tightened the screws another step, limiting Emmett to just two fourth-quarter points.

“In the fourth quarter we went to a full-court man-to-man press,” Smith said. “Because of the pressure we scored 10 straight points to take control. The girls just played great full-court defense. It was phenomenal. It turned the tide.

“We especially had solid play from Dallas (Defrees) and Savannah (Daly) on the press,” Smith said.

The Baker coach said the Bulldogs still committed too many turnovers.

“I don’t have the exact number available, but we had too many,” Smith said. “We have to continue to address that situation as we go into Greater Oregon League play at Ontario Friday.”

Mackenzie Warner led three Bulldogs in double figures with 14 points. Daly added 11 points, and Tara Talbott 10.

“We got another great game from Mackenzie running the point,” Smith said. “Tara played strong, and the difference in the game probably was Savannah’s 11 points. It was by far her best game of the season.”

Baker opens GOL play Friday at Ontario.

“This was a physical game, and I though the girls responded pretty well to the pressure,” Smith said. “It was a good warmup for the week ahead.”

Emmett won Tuesday’s junior varsity and frosh/soph games.
