Brooklyn High School for Law and Technology used huge contributions from its big three – sophomore Kiya Marquez, and freshmen Kaila Dawkins and Barbara Bruno – to lay waste, 60-26, to host Transit Tech Monday night in a PSAL Girls Class B divisional matchup.
While the Lady Jets have an impressive record, head coach Michael Lloyd still believes his girls can tweak their performance, especially after the regents’ break, and improve the rest of the way.
“We always got to get better, and work on a couple of things,” Lloyd told www.BrooklynSportsWorld.com. “We were a little rusty (after the layoff), and still have a long way to go. We have come a long way, but still have a long way to go.”
The Lady Jets (12-1, 17-3) fell behind by two points O.27 seconds into the game, but they sped back at breakneck velocity to take a commanding 21-4 advantage in the first period.
While the Lady Express (7-6) played better in the second quarter, it was too much of the duo of Marquez and Dawkins, who combined for 14 points and paced BHSLT to a 39-15 half time lead.
The Lady Jets continued to pour on the defensive pressure, and provided the offensive firepower to swell its advantage to 55-23 in the third period.
The two squads flailed offensively in the fourth quarter, but it didn’t matter for BHSLT, as it won going away.
Marquez drained a contest-leading 24 points, while Dawkins and Bruno scored 20 and 16, respectively.
BHSLT travels to Juan Morel Secondary School tomorrow for a 4:30 p.m. PSAL Girls Class B conference tilt.
