Senior Forward Rianne John powers Lab Museum to playoff win over MLK with 14 points and nine rebounds.

Senior forward Rianne John enjoyed a stellar game, posting 14 points and nine rebounds in the top-seeded Lady Gators’ 68-17 thrashing of No. 32 Martin L. King Jr. High School in the second round of the Class “A” girls playoffs Wednesday evening at home.

Lab Museum’s victory over the Lady Knights, a former Manhattan powerhouse, proved important for the program, as it signified a shift in borough girls’ basketball power, according to head coach Michael Lloyd.

“MLK win was big for us,” Lloyd explained. “Three years ago (2013-14), they were champs and team to beat. Beating them is like the changing of guards in Manhattan.”

Sophomore guard Dasha Goodman chipped in with 11 points, four assists and four rebounds while freshman guard Nina Hennessey added 10. Sophomore guard Kayla Bridgeman had a solid contest, dropping nine points, grabbing 10 boards and dishing out three helpers in the commanding win.

The Lady Gators host No. 17 The Scholars Academy on Thursday, March 2 at 5:00 p.m. in the third round of the post-season.
