Defense carries Evergreen to victory

EVERGREEN — Watching Evergreen’s girls basketball team is like reading a John Grisham novel: the defense never rests.

The Cougars completed a week of stifling three Class 4A Jeffco League opponents’ offenses with arguably their best defensive effort of the season. Evergreen forced 39 turnovers and held Littleton to 13 percent shooting to complete a perfect 3-0 week with a 39-16 home victory Jan. 30.
