     Becca Nelson added 11 points and three steals while Emma Bliss grabbed 12 rebounds in that game as Cass Lake fell to 0-1 in the conference and 0-4 overall.

     “I was happy with the overall performance the girls put together,” said Nevis head coach Mike Lien, whose team led 34-14 at the half. “I was thrilled with our defensive effort. Any time we hold an opponent to under 20 points in a half is considered an accomplishment for us.”

     C-G improved to 1-0 in the conference and 3-2 overall.

     “I was proud of the girls in regards to effort and hustle plays. We were on the floor diving and hustling for loose balls, which is always encouraging,” said Lien. “Turnovers were the name of the game for us again as we coughed it up 34 times. If we could find a way to limit the turnovers, we might be 4-0 instead of 2-2.”
