“We came out really strong and set the tone,” W-P coach Jerry Baker said, as his squad hit all three of its 3-pointers in the opening quarter. “But we were pretty even over the last three quarters. Their girls played really hard. We just jumped out to an early lead and maintained it.”

W-P held a 22-11 lead after the first period, and each team scored just five points in the second stanza. W-P outscored the Knights 16-4 in the first half.

“We had a huge rebounding advantage,” Baker said, as W-P outrebounded the Knights 44-20.

W-P nabbed 22 offensive rebounds, and “that hurt them quite a bit,” Baker said. “But they gave us problems with their press, give their girls credit. They played hard.

“We played a lot better defensively in the last three quarters than we did that first quarter, so that helped us quite a bit.”

Brannock finished with a game-high 16 points, and Krystal Harris scored nine points, grabbed six offensive rebounds, had three steals and four assists.

“It was a pretty solid game for her, too,” Baker said of Harris.

Emily Field led WWVA with six points.

W-P, now 6-8 overall and 3-2 in SE2B play, heads to Tri-Cities Prep Saturday.

WWVA, 5-7 overall and 0-6 in league, next plays at Asotin next Tuesday.
