From the start of the game, both teams clearly stated their strategies: Basehor-Linwood began in a full-court press and pushed the ball up the court on offense at breakneck speed. De Soto, in contrast, packed all five defenders into the key and attempted to clog the middle. On offense, the Wildcats tried to slow the pace. The differences were stark, but it was the Lady Bobcat's size and speed, along with hot perimeter shooting, which allowed them to blow by the Wildcats, 66-36.
