Mental mistakes for the Lady Bears on senior night cost them the game vs the Lady Gators of Northwood. The final score was 44-33.
The Lady Bears had plenty of offensive rebounds and opportunities under the basket but just couldn’t find the bottom of the basket.
Going into the 4th quarter the Lady Bears were trailing 28-20. They came out hot though and looked like they were about to stage a comeback. Some Lady Gator turnovers and fouls put Block back in it, but they ran out of gas.
Senior Laterria Lee finished her last home game with 12 points. She was the one senior out of three to score.
The boys' game played out differently than the girls. The Bears won their game vs the Gators 71-53 for the Senior night contest.
The Bears, to start the game, went on an 8-0 run. This run included a Tavaughn Wyckoff poster on a Northwood defender that could have powered the parish, it was so electric in that gym.
The Bears didn't slow down after that though. Block controlled the tempo the entire game and had one of the most well-rounded games of the season.
All of Block's Seniors got in on the action. Chad Green had himself a night with 18 points.
Also, in the second half, a Northwood player went down with a lower leg injury after blocking a layup attempt by Green. Green shown a lot of class and leadership in the moment as he was the first player to check on the Gator and helped him walk off the court.

Artavis Harris was able to knock down a shot from the perimeter for his 3 points of the game.
