LADY MAVS CRUISE TO VICTORY IN FIRST GAME!


On Tuesday night at Eastside High School the Lady Mavs opened their regular season with a 58 to 39 victory over the Lady Eagles. The first quarter found both teams just getting use to the new season and the Mavs led 11-8 after one quarter of play. During the break between quarters Coach Bell instructed her team to go ahead and give the Lady Eagles a full dose of Lady Mavs basketball for a few minutes. Returning to the court with those instructions in mind the Mavs responded to go on a 17-0 run in just over two minutes. Bing, Bang, Boom, the 2011-2012 Lady Mavs had begun their season! That run grew to 26-0 before the Eagles composed themselves enough to hit a basket and the half ended with the Mavs up 42-13! Coach Bell used much of the second half to get her young varsity players some court time and those ladies finished off the victory at 58-39. Morgan Alexander and Tori Whittenberg both began their senior seasons with double-doubles, Morgan with 18 points and 10 rebounds and Tori with 15 points and 10 steals. Kentra Washington also tossed in 15 points on the night. Raziya Prince played a great floor game at point guard with 5 assists and 3 points on the evening. The rest of the Mavs scoring was Mia Bailey with 4, and Marissa Lysek, Caitland Considine, and La'Daisa Johnson all added 1 point each. Next up For the Lady Mavs is the home opener against Greenville High on Friday night.
