Girls’ basketball suffers two defeats in Live Oak Tournament games

Date: Nov. 30

Opponent: Marysville High School

Location: Live Oak High School

Final score: 34-51, Cavs’ loss

Inside info per senior Yasmin Gupta: “They were really aggressive and at one point quadruple-teamed me, which made playing hard and tiring.” Gupta finished with a team-high 25 points

Coach’s comment per Lationia Pitts: “We really need to work on having all players at the game. Out of 14 players only nine were there and only two starters. I feel (the game) would have been a different outcome if we had everyone, but I’m proud of the work everyone has put in.”


Date: Nov. 29

Opponent: Bear River High School

Location: Live Oak High School

Final Score: 48-77, Cavs’ loss

Fun fact: This was the first of three games for the Cavs in the Live Oak Tournament, and the first time they have participated in it.

Fun fact: Senior Yasmin Gupta finished with 34 points, and junior Heidi Johnson finished with 14, accounting for all of the points the Cavs scored.

Inside info per Gupta: “We were never able to get in a rhythm. Even though I scored a lot, it was hard to break (the Bruins’ ) defense.”

Inside info per Johnson: “We need to work on taking our time and moving the ball around to get a good look instead of just rushing to put up the shot.”

Coach’s quote per Latonia Pitts: Despite the loss, our defense really began to pick up, and we did a great job of getting everyone involved.”
