Lady Mats Basketball Remains Undefeated

Grayson Judge, Staff Writer

Winter Break was very successful for the Miramonte women’s basketball team. The Lady Mats won both the Nike Tournament of Champions in Arizona and the Energy Classic in Wyoming.

The Lady Mats dominated the championship games of both tournaments, beating Grandview 73-56 to secure the Nike TOC and crushing the Campbell County Camels 84-63 to win the Energy Classic. Standout sophomore Sabrina Ionescu ‘16 scored 40 points in the game against the Camels.

The Mats move to 13-0 on the year and are ranked 5th in the country and 2nd in the state behind Southern California powerhouse Mater Dei.

In a dominant first league game last Friday, the Mats destroyed Dublin 75-34. The team takes on Alhambra tonight and Las Lomas on Friday to continue with league play.

The Mats match up against Salesian and St. Mary’s Berkeley next week. Both teams have solid starting line-ups but the depth and fast paced offense of the Matadors sets them up for victories.
