Ladies face a challenge Friday

Unless you’re the Lowry Buckaroos, the first half of this year’s NIAA 3A basketball schedule didn’t settle anything.

While the Lady Buckaroos, 12-4 overall and 9-0 in league, separated themselves from the rest of the pack, five other teams, including Truckee’s Lady Wolverines varsity team, will battle over the remaining weeks for three postseason spots.

The Lady Wolverines will play what may be their most important games of the season tomorrow against the Bishop Manogue Miners in Reno.

The top four teams in the NIAA 3A move on to the NIAA Northern Zone playoffs. Currently Truckee is in fifth place, trailing Manogue by half a game for the final playoff spot.

The Lady Wolverines moved within half game of the Miners last Friday by beating the last-place Dayton Dust Devils, 36-35 in Truckee. The win improved the Lady Wolverines record to 6-7 overall, and 3-5 in league.

The Lady Wolverines led 18-12 at the half, and 28-22 entering the fourth quarter. But Dayton outscored the Wolverines 13-8 to get as close as one. Heather Shove led all scorers with 17 points.

Truckee also got help last weekend from Lowry and Spring Creek, both of whom beat the Lady Miners.
