The Bucs came out with thei T tra- ditional aggressive full-court 'man defense that caused 19 first half turnovers for the Lady Lions :from Linton. In that stretch, the Butcca- neers used a balanced attack on of- fense with seven players who accounted for 27 first half points compared to the Lions' 18. The lead at half-time was 2'7-18 with Brooklynn Zachmann scoring eight of her team's high of 12. BHS came out strong in the third quarter, scoring another 15 points with Baili Nielsen leading the way by scouring all seven of her game points in that quarter. The score at the end of" the Roundball Fever By Bob Waldal .third was 42-22 as Linton-HMB dug themselves a hole by managing only four points for the quarter. The Running Bucs picked up their first win of the season 57-34 with a total team effort. They had nine players who entered the scoring column for the game. Brooklynn Zachmann was the only player scor- ing in double-figures for the Bucca- neers. Tayrn Hotter came off the bench and scored nine points fol- lowed by senior guard Taylor Abra- ham with eight and Baili Nielson, seven, respectively. It was a good win for the Bucs as winning in Linton is not taken for granted with their winning tradition and strong program.

It is not an easy task to come back and play in the late morning and afternoon and es- pecially the caliber of the Imperials. Impressively, however, the Bucca- neer's stuck together once again as a team and their determination pre- vailed. The Lady Bucs again opened up the game pressing, but after two easy baskets by the Imperials the Bucs Roundball (Continued on Page 8) Report: More options in Marketplace this year New choices and more competi-less, taking into account any applica- age, with only a 2 percent increase on tion in the Health Insurance Market- ble tax credits.
