Highlassies obliterate Northeast Lakeview

The McLennan Highlassies obliterated the Northeast Lakeview Nighthawks 102-33 on the final day of the Coastal Bend Classic.
 
McLennan began the scoring with a Jade Bradley bucket. Back-to-back buckets by Northeast Lakeview gave the Nighthawks what would be their only lead of the game at 4-2 with 7:30 to play in the first quarter. Three consecutive 3-pointers from Mele Kaloni Kailahi and Kenidi White put McLennan up 11-4 midway through the quarter, and the Highlassies led 28-17 going into the second. The Highlassies opened on a 15-0 run as they held Northeast Lakeview scoreless for the first five minutes of the quarter. McLennan would lead 56-17 at the half.
 
McLennan continued the domination in the third, holding the Nighthawks scoreless for another five-minute stretch and extending the lead to 55 points heading to the final period, 80-25. The fourth quarter would play out much the same and the Highlassies continued to pull away.
 
Six Highlassies scored in double figures: Jade Bradley (18), Mele Kaloni Kailahi (17), Seynabou Thiam (12), Kenidi White (12), Ny'Asia Goldman (11) and Annya Moss (10). Moss also secured 10 rebounds to get the double-double.
 
The Highlassies will host Coastal Bend at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at The Highlands.
