Norris girls EMC season champs!

The Norris Girls Basketball team traveled to Gretna last Friday for their final regular season game.  This game would determine the Champion of the EMC regular season.  In the first quarter Norris was a little shaky on offense against Gretna's full court pressure defense committing eight turnovers.  Gretna led at the end of the quarter 13-8. After that quarter was over Norris settled in offensively, took care of the ball and got good looks in the half court offense.  Norris outscored Gretna in the second quarter 13-11 but still trailed by three points at half time.  In the third quarter Norris really rolled on offense outscoring Gretna 17-12 to take the lead going into the final quarter 38-36.  The fourth quarter was back and forth the entire time with each team taking the lead but Norris was determined to come out with the win and outscored Gretna 16-15 for the final score of 54-51.

This was the second year in a row that Norris has won the EMC regular season championship and now will focus on District play this week.  Norris will face the winner of Waverly-Nebraska City on Thursday night at Lincoln East with game time set for 7:00.
