Pecos girls’ defense secures 44-35 win over Cuba

The New MexicanDecember 23, 2018

It might be the holiday season, but the Pecos girls basketball team is a stingy lot on the hardwood.

The Cuba Lady Rams got a taste of the Lady Panthers’ defensive toughness in a 44-35 nondistrict win for Pecos in Cuba on Saturday night. It was the fourth straight game Pecos held an opponent under 40 points. The Lady Panthers allow an average of 32.5 points per game.

Sophomore Trinity Herrera had a double-double with 12 points and 17 rebounds, while Faith Flores grabbed 14 rebounds as the Lady Panthers (6-2) continue to show strength inside.

“Trinity is always around the ball,” Pecos head coach Ron Drake said. “She’s not real tall, but she can jump out of the gym and she’s got a nose for the ball. And Faith, she can jump out of the gym when she wants.”
