It was the same song for the Fairbury Lady Jeffs basketball team Saturday morning in consolation play of the Central Conference Girls Basketball Tournament played at Grand Island Northwest High School.
Fairbury started out decent in the first quarter, however after that point it was down hill, as Schuyler took advantage of a strong second quarter of play to hand the Lady Jeffs a 48-29 loss.
Following one quarter of play, Schuyler maintained a 7-5 lead.
The second quarter proved to be the key part of the game, as Schuyler doubled the scoring on the Lady Jeffs, 20-10.
Fairbury could not handle Schuyler’s 1-3-1 extended press and the squad struggled running its offense they had drawn up prior to tipoff.
As a result, the Lady Jeffs could never recover from the hole that they dug for themselves.

A turnover-plagued second quarter played a key role in Fairbury’s quarterfinal 45-36 loss to Grand Island Northwest last Tuesday in the Central Conference Basketball Tournament held on the Vikings’ home floor.
Fairbury started out well securing a 9-8 first quarter lead, but then in the second quarter, the Jeffs battled through turnovers, and were not able to get their offense set, scoring just two points, while Grand Island Northwest knocked down 13 points to open a 21-11 lead at halftime.
In the second half, Fairbury attacked the basket and ran its offensive sets which allowed the Jeffs to outscore the Vikings, 25-24, but could only cut the deficit to nine points at the conclusion of the game.
Adam Wasserman paced Fairbury in scoring with a game-high 15 points, Blake Bauer, eight points, Cody Huss, four points, Tanner Novotny, three points, and Nathaniel Stapaules, Brent Hirsch, and Zach Holes chipped in two points apiece.
