YAKIMA — Jill McDaniels scored 27 points, including six baskets from 3-point range, and Wa-Hi rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit for a 59-45 victory over Eisenhower in a Big Nine Conference Cascade Division girls basketball game here Friday night.

Vicki Reardon added 19 points for the Blue Devils, who outscored the Cadets 37-14 in the second half.

"We were a step slow in the beginning," Wa-Hi assistant coach Anne Bickelhaupt said. "Our defense was poor in the first half.

"We had a gut check at halftime and the defense got better because of our pressure in the second half," Bickelhaupt said. "We were getting in passing lanes and getting hands on balls."

The Blue Devils ended up with seven steals. Alicia Baker ended up with five thefts.

Eisenhower shot just 15 percent in the fourth quarter after a 46-percent performance in the first half.

McDaniels was 6-of-14 outside the arc.

Reardon scored a season-best 19 for the Blue Devils. Jamie Weisner, Wa-Hi’s leading scorer on the year, was limited to four points on 1-for-7 shooting from the floor, but she pulled down 12 rebounds and dished out six assists.

"Jamie was seeing open people and dumping it inside," Bickelhaupt said. "She got the ball where we needed to."
