SEVEN SPRINGS -- Spring Creek showed drastic signs of improvement from a year ago in a 51-33 loss first-year head coach Charlie Cotten's debut Tuesday evening.

The Gators trailed just 22-17 at the half, but were outscored 32-16 in the second half.

Alyssa Borja led Spring Creek with 18 points and Amber Buchan added eight.

"We're young and inexperienced and that isn't an excuse but I think some of the girls were a little nervous early on," Cotten said. "They settled down and I was pleased with the way we continued to fight and the way we competed for four quarters. We will continue to learn and improve and we'll only get better."
