The loss dropped Carson to 0-4 overall, 0-2 in 4A play.

“We played better in the second half. We went man-to-man with a little half-court trap. We actually outscored them (32-20). As a team we just didn’t shoot the ball well.”

Eliza Matley led Carson with 14 points, while Tiana McAllister Daggs added 10. Savannah Smith scored a season-high eight points, while Emily Collins and Maddi Saarem added seven points.
