Chaparral Wins The Lady Bears Basketball Classic


The Pumas Capture the Championship for The First Time in Overtime

Chaparral was challenged but did not falter as they rallied to win the 2013 Lady Bears Basketball Classic hosted by Riverside Poly High School Monday. The Pumas beat Patriot 38-35 in overtime to win the tournament for the first time.

The game quickly became a defensive struggle as both teams had difficulty scoring. The pace of the game was dramatically altered when the game was delayed more than 45 minutes in the first quarter. The Patriot's Sabrina Avery was injured in a multiple-player collision for a loose ball and suffered an apparent neck injury. Paramedics were called and Avery was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Chaparral was led by tournament MVP Kali Jones who scored nine points and nine rebounds. Megan West was the leading scorer for the Pumas with 10 points. Sara Hogman scored seven, Sydney Nanton six. Rosalinda Murillo and Tamra Owens each had three points.

The Pumas led by 5 as time was running out in regulation time as Patriot clawed back into the game and tied it at the Buzzer. Chaparral missed its final 12 field goal shots and was a disappointing 5 of 18 at the foul line.

Chaparral put it together in the end though and outscored the Warriors 11-6 in overtime to bring the Championship and Trophy to Temecula. Summit High School was third in the tournament as they beat host Riverside Poly 67-60.

The Pumas are now 12-2 after beating Colton 82-5, Yucaipa 51-25, and Summit 58-41 in the tournament. They will next play the Wildcats at Paloma Valley on January 8th.
