PREP WATCH: Blues shoot past Canby
Blues improve to 3-0
Junior forward Tyschal Blake scored a game-high 19 points to lead St. Marys Academy in a 68-57 Tuesday home win over Canby.
Junior guard Martina McCowan poured in 15 points, and freshman Bendu Yeaney contributed 10 in a preview of what will be a conference match-up next season, when the Blues (3-0) join the Cougars (0-1) in the Three Rivers League.
After Canby junior Taylor Jorgensen drained a 3-pointer late in the first quarter to give her team its only lead, 10-9, St. Marys took control with a 25-4 run that showcased its size, athleticism and shooting ability.
Despite the graduation of nine seniors from last years roster, the Blues are in the hunt for a fourth consecutive trip to the eight-team Class 6A tournament.
