The Bradshaw Mountain basketball girls earned their 25th straight victory this past Thursday on Senior Night when they beat Washington 60-41. The Lady Bears closed regular season play the following night with their 26th, downing the Mingus Union Lady Marauders 51-43 in Cottonwood.

Aided by a sluggish start from the Lady Bears on Thursday, Washington led 16-10 after the first quarter of play.

Bradshaw finally tied it 19-19 with 2:19 remaining in the second quarter and never looked back, taking a 25-19 halftime lead, and increasing the margin to 42-27 after three quarters.

Seniors starters Jessica Olivas and Angie Banks had a balanced night, with 4 rebounds and 4 steals each. Olivas also had 10 points and 3 assists, while Banks contributed 9 points and 5 assists. From the senior bench Miranda Angulo added 3 points and Nicole Salcido, 2.

Kylie Morris hit a game high 19 points, to go with 6 rebounds, 4 steals and 2 assists for the Lady Bears. Kirsten Smith sank a big 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. She also blocked 2 shots and assisted on 4.

Dacie Clark managed 8 points, 5 boards, and a couple of steals and assists apiece, and Ashlie Dowdy had 6 points and 4 boards.

Friday, the visiting Lady Bears found themselves on the short end at halftime, 24-16. But a strong second half offensive performance, including three of the team's five 3-pointers, drove them to the win.

Morris and Clark recorded a dozen points each, while Olivas hit a trio of treys on her way to 11 points. Dowdy added 9 points.

Bradshaw owns the No. 2 seed in AIA Division II power point rankings, with an 18-0 record (26-1 overall). Sectionals take place Feb. 5, 7 and 9 at Greenway High School, and Bradshaw, with the No. 1 seed for Section 2, took on No. 8 Greenway in the quarterfinal round last night, after the Tribune's press time.

State Tournament begins Feb. 13 at the higher seed for each game.
