Springdale Har-Ber second at Carthage (Mo.) tourney
The Lady Wildcats won a pair of games in the Carthage (Mo.) Tournament and advanced to the championship game, where they fell to Mount Vernon, Mo., 60-48.
"I am pleased with the way our team battled in spurts," said Har-Ber coach Jamie Green. "However, for us to finish games with wins the way we are capable of, we have to have an unwavering commitment to win the 50-50 balls."
Green pointed to rebounding and free throws as other areas the Lady Wildcats (3-3) need to improve on as the nonconference season moves forward.
"Hustle plays are what make the difference," Green said. "We have the talent, now we need to add the killer instinct mentality to finish teams off when we get in a position to do so."
Senior guard Maci Manes scored 20 points to lead Har-Ber in Saturday's championship game. Savanna Collins and Sophie Nelson scored 7 points each and Collins added 7 rebounds and 4 assists.
Har-Ber will be off until Thursday when it opens play in the Broken Arrow (Okla.) Tournament.
