Live from Salina: Bobcats tied with Cheney at halftime

March 11, 2011

— Basehor-Linwood has used a variety of defenses to take defending state champion Cheney out of its comfort zone during the first half.

The result has been a tempo that favors BLHS, and the Bobcats are tied with Cheney at halftime, 16-16.

The first quarter was evenly matched as the squads swapped baskets and Cheney built a 10-9 lead.

Basehor-Linwood took an 11-10 lead with 5:50 left in the second quarter on a 10-foot jumper by Megan Bergstrom. That set off a flurry of lead changes before Courtney Poe buried a 3-pointer off of a screen by Jamie Johnson that gave BLHS a 16-14 lead.

Cheney turned the ball over on four of its final five possessions of the half, but the Cardinals scored on the one good possession and tied the game.
