WARRIOR YOUNG GUNS COME UP BIG IN WIN
Freshman Guard Has Career Night in First Start for the Warriors
Dec. 12, 2003
LEWISTON, Idaho – Freshman guard BreAnna Mulvey scored a career-high 20 points as the Lewis-Clark State women’s basketball team (7-4, 0-0 Frontier Conference) defeated the University of Fraser Valley 75-42 in Warrior Gym Friday night.
Mulvey (Spokane, Wash.), a 5-8 guard out of Mead High School, dished out a season-high six assists and her 20-point effort tied a game-high. In her first career start for the Warriors, Mulvey seemed to surprise the visitors from Canada with her speedy drives and acrobatic shots. Mulvey shot 6-for-10 from the field, including 3-for-4 from three-point range.
With less than four minutes left in the first half, Mulvey shot past her defender and tossed up an off balance shot while being fouled. The subsequent free throw made the score 32-18 and the Warriors went into halftime leading 38-20. Mulvey finished the game 5-for-7 from the charity stripe.
Sophomore Cami Kalbfleisch (Lewiston, Idaho) tied her teammate (Mulvey) with 20 points while dishing out five assists and grabbing three steals. Freshman Ashley Baker (Omak, Wash.) and senior guard Jessica Foot (Brisbane, Australia) scored 14 and 10 points respectively. Foot added a game-high six steals while Baker grabbed three offensive rebounds.
The Cascades were led by Lauren Alonzo’s 10 points. Alonzo, who tied a team-high with four steals, was the only player to score in double-figures for Fraser Valley. The Cascades shot 34.6 percent from the field and only 37.5 percent from the free-throw line.
At 14:56, with the Warriors up 23, Mulvey stole the ball from the Cascades’ Jamie Born at half-court, laid the ball in, and was fouled by Kalisha Reid in the process. Her free throw made the score 49-26 and LCSC won their third game in a row and seventh overall.
The Warriors return to action tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. against the University of Fraser Valley in Warrior Gym.
