Roundup: Plainview girls basketball falls in 4A Regional
PLAINVIEW — Sometimes it’s just not your night, no matter how much effort you give on the court. That was the case for the No. 17 ranked Plainview High School girls basketball team on Thursday in a 43-26 setback to No. 15 Byng during the Class 4A Regional Tournament.
“Our offense was nonexistent tonight,” said Lady Indians head coach Chad Walker. “Byng does a great job of taking us out of our game. They sag off of us (on defense). My girls haven’t figured out yet that means you’re wide open for a 3-pointer, shoot it. We try to move our offense down and they forget what they’re trying to do. Byng did a good job of taking us out.”
Plainview was within striking distance at the end of the third quarter, but foul trouble proved costly. Lady Indian starters Emilee Hudson and Riley Grant fouled out early in fourth and that sealed the win for Byng.
“We struggle to win ball games if those two are sitting on the bench, and they know that,” Walker said of Hudson and Grant. “We just got through talking in the locker room about some of their fouls are just ridiculous. They’re smarter than that and they’re better than that. They just have to do a little better job.”
Plainview fell into an early hole and could never recover. And it also didn’t help that the Lady Indians made just two shots from the floor in the first half.
That led to Plainview being down 23-9 at halftime.
It was closer in the second half, but Byng made a late run to clinch the victory.
Jacey Hammon and Emilee Hedge paced the Lady Indians with seven points apiece, while Reagan Chaney added five.
Plainview makes the trek to Anadarko to play Pauls Valley at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26. The winner advances in regionals, while the loser’s season is over.
