BASSFIELD – The Bassfield Lady Yellowjackets relied on their home court advantage to eliminate the West Lincoln Lady Bears 47-22 Tuesday night in the opening round of the Region 7-2A Tournament.

“We did not come ready to play,” said West Lincoln coach Lane Young. “This was the worst game we have played all year. Normally, we are very competitive no matter what, but tonight we were not competitive.”

The Lady Bears concluded their season with a 5-21 worksheet overall.
