CABOOL – Conway’s pressure defense proved to be too much for the Houston Lady Tigers to handle. The Lady Bears forced turnovers that led to easy baskets and frustrated Houston with its traps all over the court as they cruised Thursday night to a 41-27 victory in the Class 3 District 10 semifinals.
Conway quickly pulled away with a 10-0 run early in the first quarter that made it 10-3, and the advantage stretched to double digits early in the second quarter. The Lady Bears, who led 27-13 at the half, pushed their lead to 22 points at the end of the third quarter.
Houston scored 12 of the game’s final 13 points to make the final score respectable.
