Hot start propels St. Mary's past Lakeview

January 30, 2013

St. Mary's got off to a blistering start and defeated visiting Lakeview, 61-38, in Southern Cascade Hybrid girls basketball Tuesday.

The Crusaders (19-2, 6-0 SCH) outscored Lakeview 26-3 in the first quarter and led 37-16 at halftime.

"We came out on a tear," said St. Mary's coach Richard Vasey. "The last time we played them, we had 13 3s. The first thing that happens tonight is Lillian Martin gets the ball and drills a 3 to start the game, and that lit a fire under us. We opened up in a press and just took off."

Martin and Emily Alvarez, who paced the Crusaders with 17 points, each scored six in a balanced opening frame. Martin finished with 11 points.

St. Mary's got fine all-around play from Viv Juncal, who scored eight points, and freshman MaryBeth Barnum, who played strong defense down the stretch.

"We moved the ball really well on offense when we didn't get anything off the press," said Vasey. "We played good half-court defense and moved it around pretty well."
