Baker hadn't played since before Christmas, so Coach Tim Smith was

pleased when the Bulldogs defeated Kuna 44-32 Friday in a non-league

girls basketball game at Kuna, Idaho.

"I thought the girls played well, particularly coming off the long break," Smith said.

"We executed pretty well, and played great defense. And, we got some things to fall when we needed them to."

Dallas Defrees and Mackenzie Warner each scored 11 points to lead the Bulldogs. Defrees added nine rebounds and six steals.

"Dallas had a great all-around game. She was all over the place," Smith said.
