Garden City adds another road win
Lamar, CO-Garden City left no doubt.
Antonicia Moultire poured in 22 points, Maya Nieto drilled six 3-pointers off the bench, and the Broncbusters destroyed Lamar, 82-42 Tuesday night at the Wellness Center.
Garden City hit 10 3s, marking the second time this season they connected on double-digit triples. They were 16-of-20 at the line.
Leading by three after one, the Broncbusters exploded in the second. Sierra Driessen stole the ball from Melissa Hermosillo; then found Ana Ramos Pires for a layup igniting a 17-0 run that was capped by Driessen's two free throws that made it 33-13 with 6:27 left in the half. It was all part of a quarter in which Garden City outscored Lamar, 24-11 to take a 40-24 lead into the locker room.
In the second half, Stevi Yancy drilled a 3-pointer from the left corner to put the visitors up, 52-29. Pires followed that up by splitting two defenders and finishing with a pretty left-handed layup high off the glass, and Nieto beat the Lopes' 2-3 zone with a corner triple, giving Garden City a 26-point edge.
The Broncbusters outscored Lamar, 42-18 over the final 20 minutes.
Pires finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds for Garden City, which improved to 3-1 away from home. Nieto had 18 points in 27 minutes, and Yancy and Sariah Conley each chipped in nine.
