The Bradshaw Mountain gym was not as full as usual for a basketball game against Prescott this past Friday, possibly because the host Lady Bears already had defeated their cross-town rival Lady Badgers twice this season. But more likely the absence of Prescott fans had more to do with the fact that Bradshaw owns the No. 1 ranking in AIA Division II, with only a single season opening loss and 21 consecutive wins. Bradshaw's Div. II record is 13-0. Prescott (9-5) moved up to No. 15.

A plentiful home crowd watched their Bears come from behind to beat the Badgers 50-46.

But the visitors led their hosts a merry chase along the way, to find themselves ahead 10-8 after the first quarter and 19-18 at the half.

The two teams traded leads regularly throughout the game, and Prescott trailed by a single point with 30 seconds remaining, before the Lady Bears spread the gap for the victory.

Dacie Clark and Kylie Morris paced Bradshaw with 13 points apiece. Angie Banks contributed 10.

Bradshaw had downed Kingman 57-36 Thursday night at home, after beating the same team 51-44 on the Lady Bulldogs' court Tuesday.

The Bulldogs lived up to their name in Thursday's contest, harassing the Bears at every turn and exchanging leads on nearly every shot through the first half.

Kingman led 11-9 after one quarter of play, and Bradshaw held a narrow 24-23 margin at the break.

The Lady Bears are on the road for the next week. They headed to Moon Valley yesterday, after the Tribune's press time, and will go to Camp Verde Friday and Coconino next Tuesday.
