GIBBON — The Doniphan-Trumbull girl's basketball team had not seen many zone defenses before its game against Gibbon on Friday night. The Lady Buffaloes came out in a 2-3 zone that gave the Cardinals a slow start.
Once the Cardinals got a feel for the zone, the scoreboard started showing it. The Cardinals outscored Gibbon 45-31 in the final three quarters to win 53-41 in Lou-Platte conference play.
"We see so much man-to-man on a weekly basis in this area that sometimes it is tough to get back into the mode of playing against a zone," said Doniphan-Trumbull head coach Mark Davis.
