Nevada completely dominated all three games by out scoring the Rams 75-32 combined. Greene County never held a lead at any point and the last tie score was at 3-3 in game one.
Donna Carhill is the head coach of the Rams. She said she thought her team was just a bit intimidated by knowing Nevada is ranked as one of the top teams in Class 3A. “We had short moments where we were able to play with them, but just couldn’t develop any kind of momentum.”
