Mira Costa’s girls basketball team defeated Inglewood by a deficit of 43 points on Feb. 6 at Inglewood High School with a score of 66-23. The top performer included sophomore Kim Waller who finished the game with multiple rebounds and scored in the paint.
Costa’s offensive game started out with much momentum, scoring 31 points in the first quarter due to smart passes and many offensive rebounds. The Mustangs’ defense only allowed the Sentinels 7 points in the third and fourth quarter.
“We did well with getting easy open shots, but we need to work on playing hard the whole game and cutting down on unnecessary turnovers,” junior Juliana Chen said.
Costa is now 16-11 overall and 7-2 in Bay League and will face off against Redondo Union on Feb. 8 on the Mustangs home court. Costa lost to the Seahawks on Redondo’s home court, so now the Mustangs are wanting to protect their home court and pull out a win.
“Something I really hope to accomplish before the season ends is at least making a good post move and it ending with a make,” sophomore Alyssa Toyooka said.
