Tri-State Sports & News Service writer Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the Beaver girls basketball team. Click here to read his story.
"The Beaver Area girls basketball team spends a lot of practice time working on its defense and so far in this young season, it has shown.
The Bobcats have limited opponents to scores usually seen in football: 10, 10 and 16. That defense has helped drive a strong start for a Beaver team that is 6-1 overall and 2-1 in Class AA Section 6. Through eight games, the Beaver defense is allowing 26.3 points per game.
"We take a lot of pride in our defense," coach Greg Huston said. "We have really worked hard in practice and really, the credit goes to the girls. We have girls who have bought into it, they are very disciplined and do everything we ask them to defensively."
That defense allows Beaver to stay in games even when shots are not falling, as was the case in a 37-29 section loss against Carlynton."
