After picking up a couple of wins over the last two weeks, including a big quadrant win, head coach Tyler Bartlett’s Lady Dogies dropped what he described as a winnable game against the Rawlins Lady Outlaws last Saturday in the Dome.
“I felt like it was a step back for us,” Bartlett sighed. “I thought that we were trending in the right direction these last couple of weeks, but on Saturday the effort and energy just wasn’t there and we are asking to get beat when that happens.”
Offensively, the Lady Dogies fell back into an early season habit of launching the ball from beyond the arc, which Bartlett insists is not an efficient shot for this team. After a couple of weeks of very good shot selection, Newcastle went two of 14 from three-point land on Saturday.
