ANSON — When studying videotape of Friday’s 45-40 loss to Childress, the Anson girls basketball team will likely find several key plays that would have helped to reverse the result of the title game in the Ninth Annual Lions Club Holiday Tournament.
But perhaps none were more important than a third quarter foul drawn by junior Landry Overby, which saw her take an unintentional blow to the head while driving for a layup. Shaken up, Overby was subsequently removed from the game, leaving the already size-challenged Lady Tigers at a big disadvantage to CHS.
Overby, who was named to the all-tourney team, finished with seven points. But without her on the floor during the final period, the Lady Tigers, who trailed 29-28 after three quarters, saw the game gradually slip away.
