Lipan girls run streak to 10 in row

December 11, 2013

The first Texstar Tournament of Champions was short-lived and the Lipan Lady Indians made short work of their one opponent before icy weather canceled the remainder of the event.

The Lady Indians (10-1), in winning for the 10th straight game, got 23 points from Lanie Roberts, one of four Lipan girls to score in double figures. Kylee Cross contributed 14 points.

In all, nine Lady Indians scored.

The Lipan win was on Thursday, the same night an ice storm hit the area. Friday and Saturday action was canceled.

Lipan, ranked second in the state in Class A Division II, jumped out to a 30-6 lead after the first quarter. The Lady Indians outscored Blum in every quarter.

The Lady Indians dominated every aspect of the game, making almost three times as many field goals (30-12). They had a 30-point advantage from 3-point range, going 11-for-20 to 1-for-6 for Blum.

Six Lady Indians had at least one 3-pointer, with Roberts and Cross hitting three each.

Lipan forced 32 turnovers and registered 20 steals, led by Roberts with six.

The tournament was established after Lipan moved into its new gym last year.
