2021 State Class AA Girls Basketball Tournament – Great Falls Bison VS Sentinel Spartans

Friday, March 12th 2021

It is a battle all throughout the game for both of these teams. What seems to keep the Sentinel Spartans in the game is their use of the full court press. It causes an upset with Great Falls, but Sentinel has a hard time converting it to points on the board. Brooke Stayner (a key player for Sentinel) ends up fouling out of the game with about 4 minutes left in the game. Sentinel tries to fuel the fire of their full court press by changing out their players quickly, so that they can rest, but Great Falls will not give up the lead. It’s with the remaining 2 minutes we see up to 4 timeouts.

Great Falls is able to capitalize with their timeouts, causing a little bit of confusion with Sentinel, ending with more points on the board. The Sentinel Spartans end this game (and the tournament) losing to Great Falls 44 – 36. Great Falls will go on to play the winner of today’s game between Helena Capital and Billings West at 5:30 PM. That game for Great Falls will be Saturday, March 13th at 9:00 AM. Sentinel ends this game with 14 out of 65 for Total FG, 0 for 14 with 3-pointers and 8 for 15 on free throws.
