Girls’ basketball: Grant lets off some steam in victory

first_imgThe first opportunity to prove themselves came on Friday, and the Lancers didn’t waste any time, jumping out to a double-digit lead in the opening minutes en route to a 66-52 victory over No. 13 seed Crenshaw of Los Angeles in the opening round of the City Section playoffs. Amanda Corona had a team-high 16 points and Mariam Asaryan added 15 points for the Lancers (18-0), which never trailed after taking a 16-0 lead six minutes into the first quarter. Asaryan connected on three 3-pointers in the opening 2:25 to help stake the Lancers to the early advantage. “We wanted to come out strong and prove with can play with anybody in the City Section,” said Asaryan, who finished with four 3-pointers on the night. “This is a big win for us, but we aren’t satisfied yet.” Crenshaw (17-9) cut its deficit to 23-18 midway through the second quarter on a layup by Shaunte Pearson, but the Cougars never got any closer. Four players scored in double figures for Grant, which won despite getting no points from leading scores Andrea Chavez and Arpine Amirkhanyan in the first half. Chavez finished with six points and seven assists, and Amirkhanyan had seven points and 13 rebounds after sitting out much of the first half with foul trouble. “We aren’t a team that relies on one or two players to win,” Chavez said. “Everybosy stepped up tonight.” Blue Sanders scored 13 points and Liseth Orrego added 10 points and nine rebounds for Grant, which will host Wilson of Los Angeles or King Drew of Los Angeles on Wednesday. Pearson had a team-high 16 points for the Cougars, who won the City title in 2004. [email protected] (818)713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
