The Bradshaw Mountain lady basketball Bears made a clean sweep of their three home games this past week.

After downing Sedona 65-54 Monday, the Lady Bears mauled Mingus 74-33 on Wednesday, then confounded the Cougars from Chino Valley 49-17 Thursday.

Neither of the midweek contests was ever in doubt.

Bradshaw led Mingus 14-10 after one quarter, and kept its scoring consistent with 20 points in each of the next three quarters.

The Lady Bears led 34-17 at the half and 54-28 after three periods of play.

"I thought we came out with intensity," Bradshaw head coach Efren Badilla said. "Our defense actually won this game for us. But we didn't turn the ball over near what we have in the past; our turnovers were to a minimum."

Kylie Morris led the Lady Bears with 18 points. Kirsten Smith contributed 13, Angie Banks, 12, Dacie Clark, 11, and Jessica Olivas, 8.

"It was a great team effort and great victory - a confidence builder for the team. I'm very proud of them," Badilla said.

Thursday, Bradshaw again had a 14-point first quarter, but Chino tabulated only 2 points, and the Lady Cougars trailed 30-5 at the midway break.

As Chino's shooting woes continued, Bradshaw increased its lead to 43-7 after three quarters before easing up and allowing bench players to gain experience.

On a night when all but one of the 11 players on the Lady Bears' roster scored, Kylie Morris led all shooters with 10 points. But Jessica Olivas was close behind with 9, while Ashlie Dowdy contributed 7.

Bradshaw traveled to Chino yesterday, after the Tribune's press time. The Lady Bears now get a break from competition until Prescott's tournament Dec. 28 and 29.
