Some girls basketball highlights from Tuesday night

There were plenty of noteworthy girls basketball games Tuesday night, including the one I covered, where Auburn Mountainview (No. 9 in Class 3A) beat Lakes (No. 8), 58-50, in a contest that could decide the SPSL 3A title. Lakes beat Mountainview the first time around, but then lost to Bonney Lake, so currently sits in second place with three league games remaining.

Caitlin Carr was outstanding for the Lions with a career-high 27 points. She can hit the three and has some nice post moves inside as well. Stefona Scott had 26 for the Lancers, despite sitting out all but 17.1 seconds of the first quarter at coach Daniel Guy’s discretion. She’s got cat-like quickness and is fun to watch.

If you missed it, you can still read my story.

And here are highlights from some of the other Tuesday girls games, starting with two other SPSL 3A contests:

Bonney Lake 52, Decatur 41
