Girls basketball Bees prevail at ESM tournament

B'ville fights off Whitesboro, Auburn for top spot

— Then, led again by the trio of Miller, DeFazio and Pascale, B’ville erupted in the third quarter, outscoring Auburn 24-10 as its pressure took a toll and, defensively, it did a good job of containment on Maroons star Annie Giannone, who only managed 12 points, barely half her total from the win over ESM the day before.

DeFazio, named the tournament MVP, would finish with 20 points, just ahead of Pascale, who had 17 points and five assists, and Miller, who backed up her 16 points with nine rebounds and seven blocks, joining DeFazio and Pascale on the All-Tournament team.

Lammers again finished with eight points as Riley Carlucci got six points and Katie Walsh contributed seven rebounds.

With those wins, B’ville improved to 7-2 as it hit the midway point of its regular-season schedule and prepared for a four-game homestand that would include a third encounter with Auburn Jan. 7 and a big encounter with Nottingham on Jan. 10.
