Wolves down Lady Dawgs
Everything looked easy for the Livingston Wolves during their 46-25 rout of the Ceres High varsity girls basketball team on Wednesday at Phil de la Porte Gymnasium.

"Turnovers were a really big thing tonight," Bulldogs junior point guard Brittany Lusk said. "We had 30 against Bret Harte (in the title game of the Ceres Lions Club Tournament) and probably just as many today. We just need to calm down and figure out what we're doing."

Kaylee Brown led Ceres High (5-6) in scoring with seven points. Lusk and Jode Johnson both contributed six points. Lilibeth Jaimes and Aimee Gunzenhauser added four and two points, respectively.

Denise Pulido made two treys en route to tallying a game-high 12 points for the Wolves (7-2). Nina Garcia made three 3s and scored nine points. Post players Olivia Andam and Consuelo Hernandez each contributed eight points. Ashlee Thompson, Jordan Garcia and Neyri Zarco added four, three and two points, respectively.

Facing an 8-5 deficit, Livingston upped its defensive intensity and reeled off 18 straight points to take a commanding 26-10 lead into halftime. The Wolves outscored the Bulldogs 14-2 in the second quarter.

"The first half we were completely clueless," Lusk said. "We didn't know how to handle the pressure. We got freaked out a little."

Ceres High committed 20-plus turnovers in the game, including 10 in the opening four minutes of second half.
