What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Dawgs in first Continued from page 9 The Dawgs built their advan- tage to 20 points just 10 seconds into the second half with a traditional three-point play by Williams Jr., who canned a short shot off a Stephen McCall assist and then hit a free throw after a foul was called against West- minster on the shot. Williams Jr. hit all 10 of his free throw attempts in the game to lead a 24 of 27 shoot- ing performance from the line by Western, while Westminster converted just 12 of 24 from the charity stripe. That disparity helped stymie the Griffins' efforts to climb back into the game in the sec- ond half, when they played with more intensity than they did in the first half, but with no more accuracy from the line. \In the first half, we didn't play with as much effort, but we fought hard in the second half,\ Westminster senior for- ward Nick Jenson told Griffins TV after the game he scored a dozen points in. \We just didn't make shots.\ The hosts hit a respectable 10 of 24 from beyond the arc, hut struggled inside of it, where the Griffins converted only 11 of 32 of their field goal attempts in the game against a stingy Dawgs D that ranks eighth in the NAIA in field goal defense (39 percent). Western held Westminster's two leading scorers, Jordan Pryor and Quincy Bair, to just 8 of 25 shooting from the floor and compounded the Griffins shooting troubles by posting a decisive 41-31 rebounding ad- vantage in the game. The win moved the Bulldogs into sole possession of first place in the conference standings for the first time since they dropped consecutive road games to MSU Northern and the University of r,•to Falls last month. By Jess Alberi Dillon Tribune sports A great defensive effort by the Butte High Bulldogs handed the Dillon Lady Beavers their second straight loss to a Butte team, a 42-48 nail bitter in Butte. The Lady Beavs, who were looking to rebound from their first conference loss four days earlier in a poor shooting effort against Butte Central, stepped up a class to face the AA win- less Butte High Bulldogs (0-13). Butte High used much the same defensive game plan that worked for its crosstown coun- terpart Butte Central against Dillon, as they focused on shut- ting down Dillon's biggest of- fensive threats—Cierra Lamey and Alex Rouse. Coming into the game, the two had combined to score over half of Dillon's points this sea- son (366 of 726). The other 10 Dillon girls have combined for 360 total points on the year—the majority scored by starter Audrey Schurg (102) and reserves Brynley Fitzgerald (78) and Rachael Nye (77). Lamey and Rouse reasserted their offensive leadership early in Butte, where they accounted for 10 of the Beavs 12 first- quarter points in guiding the Beavs to a 12-7 lead. But the tough man-to-man defense applied by Butte in the second quarter sparked a 16-5 Butte run that gave the home team a six- point cushion at the intermission. Those six points would prove the difference, as the teams mir- rored each other's scoring the remainder of the game. Both Butte and Dillon record- ed 8 points in the low -scoring third quarter and then closed out the game by each scoring 17 points in the high -scoring final frame for a 42-48 finish. Butte's man D limited Lamey to 15 points and got a lot of help from the bench, where the Dillon star was forced to sit through much of the second half Pushing the tempo Dillon Lady Beaver point guard Jordan Peterson attempts to drive past her Butte High opponent last Tuesday in Butte. Peterson dished 9 assists and made 3 steals, both team highs, in the 48-42 loss to the AA Butte High Lady Bulldogs. Terri Havertield photo with foul trouble. Rouse also reached double digits in the game, finishing with 12 points, while the remainder of the team combined for 15. Though she didn't score against Butte, Jordan Peterson made a big contribution to Dil- lon's efforts on both ends of the court with 9 assists and 3 steals, and Holly Anderson led the Beavs on the boards with 7 rebounds. Lamey and Rouse went 5 of 11 on two -point attempts and 5 of 13 from deep, while the rest of the team went 4 of 10 from short range and 2 of 9 from downtown. With 'opponents starting to key on Lamey and Rouse, Dil- lon's best chance of making a deep postseason run may be one of its other players finding the confidence to step up to help shoulder more of the scoring load. Averaging 6.8 ppg, 5.1 ppg and 5.2 ppg„ respectively. Sch- urg, Nye and Fitzgerald seem the most obvious candidates. But Holly Andersen, Jordan Peterson, Bailey Berriochoa and Kylie Christiansen have also shown they are capable of knocking down shots when called upon. Dillon now faces a key stretch of three conference games that will determine the regular -season Southwestern A title. The Beavers (6-1) currently sit in the top spot in the South- western A, just ahead of Corval- lis (5-2), Butte Central (5-3) and Hamilton (5-3). The Beavs played Hamilton last night, with the finish coming past our deadline, so look for full results in next week's Tribune. The game had been rescheduled from Saturday so that the mem- bers of the BCHS symphonic band could be present. Stevensville (1-8) will make its way to Dillon on Friday, when the Lady Beavs' five seniors will be honored at the game. On Saturday, Dillon will be in Corvallis for its last regular season game. The Lady Beavs can lock up the conference with three wins. though two could prove enough, depending on the outcome of the Hamilton -Corvallis game on Friday.

UMW's Williams Jr named Frontier POW While his team -first approach has been pivotal in the Montana Western Bulldogs' drive to first place in the Frontier Conference this season, it hasn't prevented Dexter Williams Jr. from also gaining individual accolades. The junior forward on Monday gained his second Frontier Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week award this • season. With his teammates finding it difficult to get the ball into the basket, Williams Jr. stepped up against Westminster on Saturday to score 25 points on 7 of 11 shooting from the field and a perfect 10 of 10 from the free throw line. An all-around player, Williams Jr. also grabbed 10 rebounds and a pair of steals in the win, which pushed his team into first place in the league. Williams Jr. leads the Dawgs on the season with 15.3 points and 6.9 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game. Co -leaders with the Dawgs in early February, UGF (17-8, 6-5) lost its third straight game last weekend in falling to surging Rocky Mountain College (17-9, 5-6), which continues its climb from the bottom of the confer- ence standings it found itself relegated to after an 0-3 start to its league campaign. the first week of March. Each playoff game will be contested at home court of the team with the higher seed in the matchup. Next up for Montana West- ern, a pair of games on its home court that could go a long way to securing the top playoff seed for the Dawgs and also avenge their only two losses of the con- ference season. Western first welcomes the only team in the league it re- mains on a losing streak against, the MSU Northern Lights (16-11, 5-6), who'll try to extend their winning streak to four games against Western on Thursday night. On Saturday, the Dawgs will host UGF, which bettered West- ern, 89-81, in Havre last month. \They're both tough teams,\ said Keller of UGF and MSUN, which hit the Dawgs with road losses on consecutive nights in January. \We just need to protect our home court this weekend. It's not going to be easy. But I think we'll be focused. And when we're focused and ready to go, we're pretty good. Both games tip off at 7:30 p.m. in Straugh Gymnasium. \Return of the Ridiculous Carroll College sits alone in third place at 6-5, while former conference frontrunners Mon- tana Tech sits alone in seventh, though only a game and a half back of Carroll at 4-6.

You can, too. Here's how. No topic that I've written about in this column has generated more reader responses than the topic of product shrinkage. While I primarily focus on coupon savings, product shrinkage is also of concern to any shopper that wants to maximize her dollars. So, if you'll indulge me for yet another column devoted to products getting smaller while the price stays the same, here's another round of stories from the front lines of a supermarket near you. It's increasingly common to see new product features roll out at the same time a product is downsized. This, of course, is to draw shoppers' attention to the new fea- tures and away from the smaller size.

We added some fibers back into each sheet - so you have more fibers per square inch in the center 'performance zone' where you need them most to get the job done. The reduced width improves the flushability because being slightly narrower allows the tissue to clear the bowl and drain lines more eas- ily.
