A bad first quarter put the Southwestern Heights Lady Mustangs behind the eight ball early against the Holcomb Lady Longhorns. Heights never recovered, losing 51-26.

Holcomb wasted no time taking control of the game, jumping out to a 19-4 lead by the end of the first quarter.

Heights recovered in the second quarter, playing Holcomb close, but still trailing 30-14 at half.

Holcomb again had an 11-10 advantage in the third to take a 41-24 lead heading into the fourth on their way to a 25-point win.

Heights shot just 27 percent from 2-point range, and made just 2 of 12 from 3-point range. The Lady Mustangs also committed 20 turnovers.

Nayelly LaPoint was the Lady Mustangs top scorer with 8 points. LaPoint also grabbed six boards and had three steals. Jackie Loya scored seven and grabbed 8 rebounds, and two steals.
