Prep roundup: Carson girls fall to McQueen
McQueen used a 22-3 run over an eight-minute span in the second and third quarters to post an easy 53-24 win over Carson in a 4A crossover girls basketball game Friday night at Morse Burley Gym.
The loss dropped Carson to 1-5 in league play.
Carson turned the ball over 18 times, and the only thing that saved the Senators from an even bigger loss was McQueen only got 13 points off the mistakes. And, Carson had trouble finishing at the rim for the second straight game.
“We didn’t get back on defense and we didn’t take care of the ball,” Carson coach Melissa Larsen said. “They are a good team.”
Carson led 10-8 with 6 minutes left in the first half, but the Lancer finished the first half with a 15-3 run to take a 23-13 lead at the break. Karla Spevak, who finished with 28 points, had 11 in that surge and Kendra McAninch had both of her baskets to complement Spevak.
McQueen opened the second half with a 10-2 run for a 33-15 lead. Izzy Warren started the surge with a three-point play and Spevak capped the surge with another 3-pointer.
Dajarrah Navarro led Carson with eight points, Haley Garver added six and Camryn Quilling had five.
