The Bauxite Lady Miners held the Pulaski Robinson Lady Senators to six points in the second half in defeating them 48-24 in 7-4A conference action on Tuesday at Fred Dawson Gym in Bauxite.
â€śDefensively, I didnâ€™t think we played bad,â€ť Bauxite Coach Josh Harrison said. â€śWe were out of position a few times, especially in the press. I thought we did a pretty decent job of scrambling and hustling defensively. Out of the press, we had some people out of position and a few people not rotating quick enough. They got a few deep passes and some easy shots there early.â€ť
