The Bear River Lady Bruins are coming off a first round thrashing of Hilmar but tonight's opponent,  Dixon likes to chuck the 3-ball so anything is possible. Dixon defeated Sonora at Sonora on Tuesday 60-43.

The Lady Rams come into tonight's game which tips at 7 pm at Bear River High School shooting 552 three-pointers while shooting 928 from the floor. Dixon (19-8, 7-3) will live and die by the three so if they get hot from behind the ark the Lady Bruins could be in for a heck of a shootout.

Madison Dwelley is the sharp shooter for the team. She stands 5-feet-10 and has taken 118 three point shots while only taking 110 shots from the floor. Dixon also has Gina Garcia who will also fire from anywhere on the court who has taken 146 long range shots and 79 from the floor. As a team they have shot 27% on the 3-ball and 34% from the field.

Also they do not have a real scoring leader as no one on the team has averaged double figures but they do have 7 of their 13-girl roster who averages 5 or more per game.

On December 2, the Lady Rams dropped Colfax 45-27 at Colfax where they shot 21 threes and 29 from the field making 8 and 9 respectively.

This is a perimeter team who does not take the ball to the basket so Bear River's hard-nosed man-to-man should slow this team down but if Dixon is left alone to often this game could be a high scoring affair.
