Marissa Lemus led the early assault against the Hornetsâ press, putting Big Pine ahead 6-3.
The Big Pine Warriors had a split decision this week with a 47-66 loss to the Beatty Hornets Tuesday, redeemed by a 57-44 win over the Mammoth Huskies Wednesday.
The players and coaching staff thought the back-to-back games would be a good warm-up for the holiday break and the start of league play. Beatty was slated to send its JV team; Big Pine took Mammoth lightly, according to assistant coach Derek Carrington.
âMammoth started on fire,â said Carrington. âThey came to play. I think that was the best Iâve seen the Huskies play.â
