The Lady Tigers had a little fight left in them for the postseason, but could not keep up with Cheyenne-Eagle Butte as the Braves defeated the Lady Tigers 58-33 in the first round of the Region 6A tournament in Eagle Butte on Tuesday.
“I was very proud of the girls,” said coach Ann LaMont. “They did what they could against Cheyenne-Eagle Butte’s size. The girls gave it everything they had and that’s all you can ask for.”
Having to square off against a Braves’ team with a front line featuring two players 5-feet 11-inches tall, the Lady Tigers had to find a way to keep the game close. They were able to hang around as long as the girls were being productive with mostly one-shot opportunities. The Lady Tigers were within three points after one quarter after Aundrea Kramer hit a long three-pointer just before the buzzer. Kramer and Alexa Schaefbauer combined for 10 Lady Tiger points in the first quarter.
Cheyenne-Eagle Butte started pulling away in the second quarter. Six different Braves scored during a 12-4 run that gave the Braves their first double-digit lead at 28-18. The lead rose to 11 before the Lady Tigers cut the deficit to 31-23 at the half.
The Braves put the game away in the third quarter, opening the second half on a 9-0 run. With a 40-23 lead, the Braves never looked back and beat the Lady Tigers for the third time this season.
“Cheyenne-Eagle Butte’s second-half adjustments took us out of our game and prevented us from getting good looks at the basket,” said LaMont.
Schaefbauer led the Lady Tigers with 11 points. Kramer and Chelsy Hoffman scored seven points each. Kaitlin Good Shield scored four points and grabbed five rebounds, while Taylor Brekke and Sam Good Shield added a basket each.
Kaleb Shepherd led Cheyenne-Eagle Butte with 12 points and nine rebounds. K’Lona Lofton scored a game-high 13 points. The Braves’ depth showed as 11 different players scored.
The Braves advance to play number two seed Chamberlain in Chamberlain on Thursday. Miller beat Crow Creek 59-52 in the other first round game. The Rustlers will travel to number one seed Winner on Thursday. The Region 6A championship game will be in Ft. Pierre on March 7.

Lemmon
The Lady Tigers gave 19-1 Lemmon a run for its money in the regular season finale in Lemmon on Saturday.
The Lady Tigers hung right in with the Cowgirls before suffering a scoring drought and falling 54-37.
LaMont was proud of how her Lady Tigers bounced back after the Winner game on Friday.
“The girls relaxed, got a little confidence and played pretty well,” said LaMont. “On offense we got a lot of looks and made adjustments to their switches. We also handled the ball well.
With Hoffman hitting three three-pointers, the Lady Tigers held a 17-16 lead midway through the second quarter. Lemmon took the lead with a 6-2 run and led 25-19 at the half when Jenna Van Beek hit a three to end the second quarter.
The Lady Tigers shooting went cold in the third quarter, but so did Lemmon’s. Lemmon did add to its lead with an 8-3 run, but hit just two field goals. The Lady Tigers’ only points were three free throws.
Lemmon extended its lead to 15 points with a 6-2 run to start the fourth quarter. The Lady Tigers found their range again, but it was too late to catch up. The closest the Lady Tigers came the rest of the way was 11 points.
After the game went the first 20 minutes without a free throw, the teams combined to shoot 33 free throws the rest of the way. Lemmon took advantage, hitting 15 of 22 charity shots.
“We played good defense, but we struggled for a while,” said LaMont. “It’s something we’ve been dealing with.”
Hoffman led the Lady Tigers with 15 points. Kramer scored 11 and Schaefbauer scored eight.
Bailee Beer led Lemmon with 15 points. Katie Sackmann scored 13 and Van Beek scored 12.

Winner
Sometimes a game is just a mismatch, and so it was on Friday evening when the Lady Tigers hosted 19-1, fourth-ranked Winner.
The Warriors controlled both ends of the court from the opening tip-off and blew past the Lady Tigers 80-15.
“They (Winner) are definitely potential state champions,” said LaMont.
LaMont said the team used the humbling defeat to learn about future accomplishments.
“We talked about things we can learn from them,” said LaMont.
