Record stands at 12-2
The Lady Titans averaged a staggering 68 points per game over the past week winning three games in a row and improving its record to 12-2.
It all started on Tuesday, February 5 when the Lady Titans handed Moffat a 68-22 loss led by junior Emma Vosburg who shot an unprecedented 64 percent from the field to score a career best 33 points.
Senior Emma Coburn pulled down 21 rebounds and scored 12 points and juniors Kaitlin Councilman and Allie McFarland each tossed in six points apiece.
After taking a healthy 34-10 lead by halftime, they outscored Moffat 21-1 in the third quarter to put the game away for good, cruising to their 10th win of the year.
The Lady Titans offense carried its momentum off the Moffat win into Nucla on Friday, February 8 scoring a team high 81 points while holding Nucla to a mere 22 points.
Once again Vosburg led the team with 26 points and Coburn scored 18 points while grabbing 23 rebounds. In addition, coach MaryMike Haley saw continued contributions from Councilman and McFarland who scored nine and eight points respectively as well as sophomore Sydney Loyed who had seven points on the night.
The Lady Titans returned to Mt. Olympus on Saturday, February 9 to face Mountain League rival the Ouray Lady Trojans.
The Lady Trojans are the only team in the league that could possibly pull off an upset and play the spoiler to the Lady Titans’ run at a second league title in a row.
Ouray kept it close for the first quarter, breaking the Lady Titans press and out-running Crested Butte up and down the court.
Ouray maintained the pressure into the second quarter pulling to within one point of Crested Butte forcing Haley to call a timeout.
Whatever Haley said to her team during the break had a resounding effect on her players as they came out of the timeout to score 14 points in a row led by four points from junior Jessie Frame to take a 25-13 lead into halftime.
Frame sparked a 21-9 run by the Lady Titans in the third quarter pulling down an offensive rebound and scoring and battling underneath again for two more points in the opening minute of the second half.
Vosburg knocked down two from behind the three-point arc to close the third quarter giving the Lady Titans a 46-22 lead with one quarter left to play.
The two teams played even hoops in the fourth quarter with Coburn finishing the game scoring the last two buckets for a 55-33 Lady Titans win.
The Lady Titans have two home games coming up as they face Creede on Friday, February 15 at 4 p.m. and then Vail Christian on Saturday, February 16 at 2:30 p.m.
