Hardwood notes on this New Year’s Eve…..

Mount Si High School’s girls’ basketball team will be home today after going 2-2 in the SoCal Holiday Prep Classic.

They closed out play yesterday with a loss in the third place game, 67-46, to Basha High School from suburban Phoenix. Elizabeth Prewitt led the way for Mount Si with 15 points as the Wildcats ended up fourth in the San Diego tournament’s NAIA Division.

Three players scored in double figures for Basha, led by the 17 of Christine Orr. Macey Rose added 16 points and seven boards, while Ceejay Galvan pitched in 15 points and six boards to aid the Arizona kids’efforts.

Madi Bevens had seven points and Annie Hiebert added six rebounds to pace the Wildcats, who made it into yesterday’s contest after a solid defensive effort in their game Monday against Corona, CA.

In that contest, Mount Si’s defense held Corona scoreless in the third quarter – after only allowing 11 first-half points, as the Wildcats rolled to the 52-25 win. Corona struggled from the floor, hitting only 19% of their shots as Mount Si dominated. And it was a balanced performance as well, with everyone scoring at least two points and none scoring double figures. Scout Turner, fresh off her birthday on Sunday, scored nine points to lead the Wildcats.

Hannah Moncada scored a game-high 19 to pace Corona.

Mount Si will resume league play Saturday night at home against Skyline. Game time is 6:30 at Mount Si High School.
