Tigers bounce back

The Lebanon Lady Tigers traveled north looking for bounce back win Tuesday night at West Lafayette.

They got just what they wanted. The Tigers jumped out to a 10-point first quarter lead and never looked back in a 70-50 win.

"West Lafayette is a really good team," Lebanon head coach Beth DeVinney said. "I expect them to have a nice year. For us, we just had to do what we do. We got away from that in the second half of the Noblesville game. We played a pretty good half against Noblesville, then came out in the second half and didn't play well. We still missed a lot of lay-ups and when you add those into the mix we become a pretty good team. The good news is we are getting those shots, we just have to convert them now."

Coming into the game, DeVinney knew that the Tigers would face an up-tempo, aggressive Red Devils defense.

But it was the Tigers defense that forced turnovers early and often and didn't allow the Red Devils to get set.

"Watching their film my initial thought was to just get them out of their flow," DeVinney said. 'Their flow is grab and go, it is a lot like ours. If you let them get into their transitional offensive flow, they are a really good team. Our goal for them was to get them out of that offensive flow and try to make everything hurried and make them shoot off the dribble. We did those things and our kids did a great job defensively today."
