Lady Knights Survive the Struggle

By Andrew Smith

Linda Vista (3/8/2014) – Over the course of the weekend at USD’s Jenny Craig Pavilion only one team (Mission Hills) was able to shoot over forty percent from the field. Perhaps the worst shooting performance took place in the girls Open Division championship, which makes sense because it’s the toughest competition.

Bishops has been the top team in the county all season long, but Mater Dei held them to 4-for-32 (12.5%) shooting in the first half and led 26-18 at the break.

We were too excited and took a lot of crazy shots,” freshman guard DESTINY LITTLETON said after scoring 17 points. “Once we starting sharing the ball and making the extra pass we really started to play our game.”

The Lady Knights came out of the locker room and scored on their first four possessions to tie the game up. They out-scored the Crusader 19-6 in the third and between IMANI LITTLETON‘s double-double and clutch free throws down the stretch they held on for a 53-47 victory.

We played about the worst half ever,” said the St. John’s-bound senior after finishing with 16 points and 16 boards. “This means the world to me. I’ll definitely remember this one forever.”

Bishops never trailed in the fourth quarter and went 6-for-6 from the free throw line late in the game when the game was still in the balance.

The girls play a game in practice were we shoot them and they just don’t miss,” said head coach MARLON WELLS. “I know it was an ugly, ugly win but I’ll take it all day long.”


Mater Dei: Kandiss Barber 26 (14 reb, 2 stl), Kristine Sellona 12 (6 reb, 3 stl), Kelsey Munoz 4 (5 reb, 1 ast), Olusola Smith 3 (10 reb, 1 stl), Onjalise Carley-Hillard 2, Jordan Brasfield (3 reb, 2 stl), McKenzie Johnson (3 reb, 2 stl)


Bishops: Destiny Littleton 17 (6 reb, 4 ast, 3 stl), Imani Littleton 16 (16 reb, 5 blk, 4 stl), Sierra Ducey 8 (6 reb, 2 ast, 2 stl), Alessandra Aguirre 6 (1 stl), Christina Frank 4 (1 stl), Layla Cunningham 2 (1 ast), Malea Casillas (2 reb, 2 ast, 1 stl)
