Turnovers plagued the DCC Lady Bucs on Saturday in Jamestown, as they fell to the JV squad 73-65.
“A major issue is our ball handling and passing,” DCC head coach Romeo Lagmay explained. “That is something we have to practice more of, as well as executing our press breaker.”
They turned the ball over 36 times and committed 23 personal fouls, but there were some bright spots for the Lady Bucs.
“There were major improvements I have seen since playing our first scrimmage on Oct. 11,” Lagmay said, “and that’s all I can ask for is improvement and 100 percent effort.”
Sophomore Shakayla White Cow shot 58 percent from the floor an led the team with 12 points and nine rebounds. Southern Idaho transfer Kayla Stephens added a double-double with 10 points, 11 boards, and six blocks.
“I’m excited to see it all come together, more sooner than later, hopefully,” Lagmay chuckled.
The Lady Bucs did get their first win of the season via forfeit on Friday. The North Dakota All-Stars didn’t have enough players to put a team on the floor.
The Lady Bucs will continue preparations for the season with a visit to Dillon to take on the University of Montana-Western JV squad on Sunday and Monday.
