Helena Lady Bengals Staying Hot From Free Throw Line

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

The Helena Lady Bengals are one of only two unbeaten teams left in the Western AA with a perfect 5-0 record. That's pretty impressive when you think that the Lady Bengals have only managed eight wins in each of their past two seasons. What's the biggest reason for the turn around you may ask? They say it all starts at the free throw line where Helena has ranked in the bottom two each of the past two seasons, but after five games this year rank at the top of the conference at 72%.

"It's between the ears, it's confidence," said Lady Bengals Head Coach Eric Peterson. "Every time we're stepping up there now they think they're going to make it every single time, and that makes a huge difference."

"I feel like it is a mental thing," said Lady Bengals sophomore guard Katie Martin. "You have to think 'I'm going to make this shot.' That's what they've been harping on us to get, to be confident at the line. It should be as easy as a lay up."
