Bruins, Miners get wins

The Bear River girls basketball team maintained their undefeated status in the Pioneer Valley League with a 64-31 thumping of Mira Loma.

Sophomore Lauren Juric started the Bruins off to a fast start hitting two three-pointers out of the gate and Bear River easily controlled the remainder of the game.

“It was a really fun game for a lot of our players,” head coach Jeff Bickmore said. “Everyone played and got a chance to really get up and down the floor.”

Senior guard Karli Kephart led the way offensively with 17 points, while junior guard Kristin Landre and Juric both scored 10 points. Senior forward Brenna Weeks played a strong game, scoring eight points.

Bear River (10-3 overall, 2-0 PVL) hits the court again Friday at West Campus with tip-off set for 7:30 p.m.

Nevada Union 55, Johnson 25

The Nevada Union girls basketball team cruised to a 55-25 win against Metro Conference foe Johnson.

“We played good team basketball and everyone got into the action,” head coach Duwaine Ganskie said. “Overall it was a good game.”

Eight different Miner players scored, with junior Heather Gore putting up a team-high 16 points. Senior guard Tracy Malone scored nine points.

Senior post player Ali Daley, who Ganskie said recently rejoined the team, pulled down 12 rebounds in the win.

The Miners host Grant on Friday at 7 p.m.
