Sunday, December 5, 2010
Norris Lady Titans started the 2010-11 season by going 2-0 over the weekend.  Friday night Norris hosted Plattsmouth in an EMC regular season game.  Norris started the game with a great first quarter outscoring Plattsmouth 17-5.  During that run Norris did a good job on the defensive boards and allowed the Lady Titans to run transition for baskets.  In the second quarter Norris again held down Plattsmouth scoring with good half court defense allowing only six points and taking a 31-11 lead into halftime.  To start the second half Norris started very well outscoring Plattsmouth 17-5 to lead 48-16 going into the fourth quarter.  The fourth quarter was a slow quarter for the Lady Titans offensively, but they were still able to hold Plattsmouth in check as well finishing with a score of 52-21.  This was a good opening game with all the girls seeing playing time and all girls scored.Norris Scoring:  Sam Areman 10, Bridget Bucher 9, Kasey Hohlen 6, Ashley                          Schroeder 6, Jessica Taylor 6, Tori Simpson 4, Felicia Tekoloste 4, Alex                          Mathers 2, Ashley Weyers 2, Morgan Braun 2, Alix Bryant 1Rebounds:       Bucher 6, Weyers 5, Schroeder 4, Hohlen 4, Tekolste 4, Areman 3, Tayler 2,                        Bryant 2.Steals:              Areman 4, Taylor 3, Schroeder 3, Simpson 2, Mathers 2,Assists:            Bryant 3, Areman 2, Schroeder 2, Simpson 2            On Saturday the Lady Titans traveled to Omaha Civic Auditorium to play Omaha Skutt in the Nebraska Prep Classic.  This was the first time for the Lady Titans competing in the Classic and turned out to be a positive experience for the girls.            In the first quarter both teams competed for the edge and Norris was able to take the lead at the end of the quarter 13-12.  In the second quarter Norris really settled in on offense and played much better half court defense and led at half time 25-19.  In the third quarter Skutt came out of the locker room and outscored Norris 5-0 to start the quarter.  After a time out the Lady Titans settled in and outscored Skutt 9-7 in the quarter to take a 34-26 lead into the final quarter.  In the fourth quarter both teams traded baskets and Norris was able to add to their lead to win the game 41-31.  We were really proud of the players with the win.  We knew going into the game that Skutt would be very aggressive on defense, but we thought we matched up well against them offensively.            Norris will play Elkhorn this Friday at home for another EMC regular season game.Norris Scoring:            Felcia Tekolste 12, Ashley Schroeder 9, Alex Mathers 7, Jessica Taylor 4,                                    Tori Simpson 3, Sam Areman 2, Alix Bryant 2, Kasey Hohlen 2.Rebounds:                   Schroeder 10, Areman 8, Tekolste 5, Simpson 5, Bucher 5, Bryant 4,                                    Mathers 4, Taylor 2Steals:                          Areman 2, Bryant 1, Mathers 1, Tekolste 1, Schroeder 1,Assists:                        Areman 3, Simpson 2, Tekolste 2, Taylor 1
