PROSSER – The Grand-view Lady Greyhounds basketball team built a 12-point lead at the half and never looked back on the way to a convincing 66-44 Central Washington Athletic Conference win at Prosser last Saturday.
As it has been all season, team depth was Grandview’s strong suit on Saturday with four scorers in double figures.
The Lady Greyhounds were paced by Samantha Grove with 18 points. Grove was also strong in the post for Grandview with a team-high seven rebounds and three blocked shots.
Marissa Caballero tallied 15 points for Grandview while dishing out three assists. Close behind was teammate Hannah Pond with 14 points.
Grandview’s Jamila Shafer also had a strong all-around effort with 10 points, five rebounds and swatting away two Prosser shot attempts.
Breanna Lopez nearly made it five scorers in double figures for Grandview, as she poured in 9 points against the rival Mustangs.
Coach David Gibb says that balance and team depth will be important for his squad to keep in mind as it preps for the home stretch of the regular season.
“As long as we can continue to understand that this is truly a team effort, and as long as we continue to share the ball and play solid defense, the sky is the limit,” he says.
Gibb added, “It’s easier to win games when a group is focused on one common goal, or have one common understanding they can rally around when times get tough.”
Grandview (6-2, 7-3) will take its current three-game CWAC win streak to East Valley this coming Friday.
