PALISADE — A slow start doomed Eagle Valley girls basketball to a 55-33 loss at Palisade on Friday night.

The Devils were down 13-2 after the first eight minutes, and despite some rugged play, couldn't get back into the game.

"We had players stepping into different roles and we played a little tight," Devils coach Sam Bartlett said. "We really didn't abide by the Wooden-ism, 'Be quick, but don't hurry.' We hurried all night."

Taylor Martin led the Devils with nine points, while Katie McKay and Megan Asmussen had six points each.

Eagle Valley (12-7 overall and 8-5 in the 4A Slope) heads to Steamboat Springs today for its regular-season finale.
