The Lady Cubs (4-14) found smooth sailing in their win over LA Southwest. A 32-31 half time lead blossomed into a 15 point advantage in the second half before LASW called it quits. Freshman Latrice Klyce’s (Leuzinger HS) driving lay-up at 18:48 to open the second half jump started LACC’s momentum and a 34-31 lead. The Lady Cubs never looked back. LA City’s biggest lead of 50-35 came with 12:45 remaining in the game.
LA City was never seriously threatened by LASW from the opening tip-off. A series of scoring fast breaks and numerous offensive rebounds that led to second chance points propelled them to their fourth win of the season.
Marsha Haywood scored a season and game high 19 points to lead LA City. Latrice Klyce (Leuzinger HS) added 15 points while Luisa Bermudez (Hollywood HS) chipped in 12 points.
