Bell-Jeff Defeats Centennial!

December 29, 2009 by  

CHINO HILLS – Bell-Jeff of Burbank knocked off one girls’ basketball team from the ranks of the unbeaten Monday at the Best of the West tournament at Ayala High in Chino Hills.

The Guards will have the opportunity to end another unbeaten run today in the quarterfinals.

Behind a career-high 26 points from sophomore Rishonda Napier and 11 points, 10 assists and eight steals from senior Margeaux Gupilan, Bell-Jeff recorded an 85-70 victory over Centennial of Corona (9-1).

Layana White added 18 points, Leslie Lopez-Wood contributed 10 points and Jasmine Smith had 11 points and 14 rebounds for the Guards (10-2), who face Bishop Amat of LaPuente (12-0) at 4:30 p.m. today.

“Bishop Amat is so disciplined that it won’t be a free for all like it was (Monday). It’s going to be a tough matchup for us,” Bell-Jeff coach Bryan Camacho said. “But we’ve played some of the best in the state, so the competition is not foreign to us. We’re going against a great team and it’s just another challenge for us to get better. We’re looking forward to it.”
