ASOTIN - Waitsburg-Prescott remained perfect Saturday in Southeast 2B girls basketball action.

W-P ran to a 37-15 halftime lead and coasted home with a 55-40 win over Asotin.

"We came out with a lot of intensity and jumped out pretty good on them," W-P coach Jerry Baker said. "It was an impressive win as we hadn't won here in a couple of years."

After a 37-point half, W-P slowed it down and only scored 18 second-half points.

"That's on me," Baker said of the W-P second half. "We let off the gas as it was an opportunity to see if we could run the clock down and still get a good shot. It got us out of our rhythm."

Zara Reynolds led the Panthers with 13 points.

W-P improved to 8-0 in league and 15-0 overall.

W-P's inside game led the way. Genesis Pearson scored a game-high 23 points and pulled down 10 rebounds. Dionna Baker scored 11 and grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds.

"Pearson and Baker were completely dominant for us inside," coach Baker said. "They posted up well and finished their shots. They combined for 22 in the first half."

Krystal Harris added eight points and dished out five assists for W-P.

W-P hosts WWVA Wednesday.

"We're getting better every game," coach Baker said. "We're almost spooky good."
