Posted: Wednesday, January 5, 2011 12:02 am
The bigger Lady Crusaders dominated the second half to pull away for a 47-29 victory. Liberty outscored the Lady Chargers 23-12 after halftime.
Breanna Pitcher helped the Lady Chargers stay close with drives into the paint and four points in the first quarter. Liberty, on 3-pointers from Keiona Kirby and Dominique James, were ahead 11-7 after a quarter.
WHS turnovers just before the second quarter ended helped Liberty carry a 24-17 lead into the break.
Kirby, who finished with a game-high 21 points and was named tourney MVP, pumped in eight points in the third with big baskets inside and from outside. Kirby’s third-quarter tallies were enough to outscore the entire WHS roster, which managed just six points on baskets by Pitcher, Kaley Leyhue and Teddy Vincent to trail 41-23 heading into the fourth.
In the fourth, each team scored six points. All the Westview points came from the free-throw line.
