Silver Lake comes up short in 40-32 loss to L-N

Lawrence-Nelson's Alyssa Miller goes up for a basket while
being blocked by Silver Lake's Alissa Ehrman Tuesday.

What a difference a three makes.

Such was certainly the case in Lawrence-Nelson's 40-32 win over Silver Lake Tuesday night in Class D-2 girls basketball sub-district playoff game at Adams Central.

After hitting 6-of-14 from three-point range in a 36-33 home win over the Lady Raiders on Jan.
31, the Lady Mustangs fell cold from long distance — or any distance for that matter — connecting on just 2-of-15 3-point attempts and 8-of-23 from two-point range. About the only time their shots were falling — aside from warm-ups — were from the charity stripe, where they knocked down a respectable 10 of 16 shots.

"The difference was we could not make a basket," Silver Lake head coach Keith Crowe said. "It seems like the shots wouldn't fall. I give a lot of credit to Lawrence-Nelson. They did a nice job of keeping the ball out of the post area to us.
