Tonight's the night when Greater Spokane League girls basketball unbeatens Lewis and Clark and Mead go for undisputed first place. LC shook off Central Valley's upset bid with a 20-0 run in the second quarter Wednesday and Mead topped Gonzaga Prep to set up the showdown.
The Bears did a great job in transition to neutralize LC's full-court pressing style and led 16-14 early in the second quarter of their game. But then Tiger substitutions began to take a toll. Jeneva Anderson showed why she's UW-bound, keeping her team in the game by scoring nine of 11 points. But it was a pair of youngsters, freshman Devyn Galland and sophomore Hayley Hendricksen who were difference makers during the run that stretched LC's lead to 34-16. Hendrickse' hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the team up by 10. Galland was active inside and hit four free throws. Anderson added two more baskets and the game was well in hand.
