Lady &#39;Cats end Simsboro home win streak
Yet for all intents and purposes, they were the decided underdogs for perhaps the first time all season.
Being the defending Class B state champs and current No. 1-ranked team in the state in your classification doesn't mean much when you step up to play a Class 5A school — particularly a consistent winner like the Ruston Lady Bearcats.
Despite the underdog status, the Lady Tigers (33-3) fought valiantly against the bigger, stronger Lady 'Cats (23-9). But Ruston managed to hold on to a 62-56 victory that snapped Simsboro's home win streak.
