Broken Bow claimed its fifth consecutive Southwest Conference girls basketball tournament championship Saturday at North Platte Community College. The Lady Indians played suffocating defense and held Gothenburg to 20 points in a 50-20 victory. Broken Bow jumped out early and never looked back. Bow led 26-12 at the half and held Gothenburg to just 8 points total in the second half as they pulled away for their 16th win of the season. Broken Bow once again showed their balance and depth as seven players scored led by Kya Scott who had a game high 14 points. Broken Bow returns to regular season action on Tuesday when they host Lexington as part of a girls and boys basketball doubleheader at the Indian gym. Tuesday’s games will be broadcast on KCNI 96.3 FM and on kcni1280.com.
