The School for Classics didn’t score its first points until 2:17 remaining in the second quarter. By that time, the Lady Jets had built a commanding 18-3 lead en route to 51-12 lopsided victory Monday at the Hebrew Educational Society Gym in Canarsie, Brooklyn.
It was Brooklyn High School for Law and Tech’s sixth straight league victory, running its record to 7-1 (8-3 overall), good for a three-way, first place tie in the Brooklyn B2 East Conference.
With the Lady Jets in cruise control after constructing a sizable advantage, head coach Michael Lloyd saw fit to insert his backups and give them some minutes in order prepare them for the postseason.
“In game like today, it was kind of a lopsided of a score,” Lloyd told www.BrooklynSportsWorld.com. “We just kind of develop and teach the other girls, and get them ready for playoff time come March. We just want to get them better.”
BHSLT jumped out to a 12-0 lead in the first quarter and closed out the half ahead by a score of 24-3. Freshman Kaila Dawkins scored 16 of 24 points.
The Lady Jets kept up their wide margin, ending the third period up 37-10. The rest of the tilt was never in jeopardy, as BHSLT won walking away in the fourth quarter.
Dawkins led all scorers with 23 points and snatched six rebounds while Freshman Barbara Bruno poured in 20, grabbed three boards and dished out four assists for a stellar game of her own.
BHSLT will travel to Teachers Preparatory School Wednesday for a 4:30 p.m. contest.
