The inexperience of the Richmond Lady Spartans showed against a veteran team like Odessa in Monday night’s opening round of the Husker Classic at Higginsville. Richmond struggled holding on to the basketball and the Lady Bulldogs took advantage of each turnover on the way to a 69-23 victory.

Odessa, with three seniors on the floor to start the game, led for all but the opening few minutes and improved to 3-0, while Richmond with just two seniors on the roster, dropped its fourth game in as many outings.
