Page 12 Rolla’s Kate Munro looks to dish to'a game last week against Dunseith. Share (Continued from Page 11) scored the first eight points of the half, cutting the Dragons advantage to 45- 34. A three—point basket by Strong snapped Rolla’s run and the Dragons main— tained control the rest of the game. A Strong finished with 24 points. Brailyn Davis added 17 points and 14 re- bounds. LaFountain picked up a double-double with 10 points to go along with 10 rebounds. Prouty added 10 points and dished out six assists in the w1n. ' I 1 Morgan Leas led Rolla in scoring with 22 points. ' Davis said her team has played well so far this season, winning 11 of 16 games, but added there’s room for improvement: “We’re doing well but we could be doing a little better just because we have such a good team this year with so many talented players,” Davis said. “We need to learn to work together more because when we work together we play so well.” Davis is the Dragons leading post player and is surrounded by shooters. She said the mix of the team has allowed her to find a variety of ways to con- tribute. “Playing with a lot of scorers isn’t bad because when they start hitting their shots it really opens the lane up for me. A lot of my points come from re- bounds so it doesn’t bother me that they shoot. Plus a lot of teams still try to double team me and when I do get the ball against a team that is collapsing I start kicking the ball out and they have stay out because my teammates can shoot so well.” Davis and her teammates, including Strong, welcomed seniors LaFoun- tain and Prouty to the team this year. Strong said both players have found ways to improve the team. “It’s been good to have them and they are both a big help on offense and the defensive side with how lengthy and tall they both are.” It was a nice bounce back win for the Dragons after a disappointing game against Langdon—Edmore-Munich earlier in the week. The Dragons hosted the Cardinals and came up on the short end of a 73-54 loss. The Cardinals never went on any extended runs during the game, but in- stead they simply wore down the Dragons. Dunseith had to fight against L- E-M’s extended defense for every bucket. However, for every one they managed to score, the Cardinals would score two, slowly extending their lead throughout the game. teammate during Rolla’s Strong said the Cardinals are not unbeatable, although they do have at least" one noriceable advantage. “The biggest thing they have that we don’t is the years of chemistry they’ve built up, where with us we’ve all only started playing together this past year,” Strong said. “We need to learn to share the ball and work together otherwise we won,’t be able to do the things we can actually do.” The Dragons next game is against Kenmare while Rolla will take on St. John..
