Head coach Michael Lloyd coined the phrase, “Get your tape decks ready,” in anticipation of jokingly audio recording the big things he excepted from Brooklyn High School for Law and Technology girls’ basketball team going into the 2017-18 season.

That was evident Monday night, as the top-seeded Lady Jets blew by No. 8 Hyde Leadership Charter School, 46-30, in the PSAL B Conference girls’ quarterfinals at Hebrew Educational Society in Canarsie, Brooklyn.

The win moves BHSLT (19-1, 24-3) one step closer to its ultimate goal of a championship, though Lloyd said he’s taking it one game at time

While the Lady Jets didn’t play its best, Lloyd said they managed to get the job done, which matters most in the end, while advancing to the semis Sunday 1:00 p.m. at York College in Jamaica, Queens.

“We played the score, we didn’t play the game as much,” Lloyd explained. “But, what can I say? It’s March. I’m going to take it. We’re going to get back to the gym. We got a few days of practice to get ready and rite the ship. And that’s what we’re going to do.”

BKSLT dominated the first quarter, racing out to a 14-2 advantage. Though the Lady Jets’ offense sputtered somewhat in the second period, they went into the locker room still ahead, 18-7.

Sophomore guard Kiya Marquez and freshman Kaila Dawkins accounted for all of BKSLT’s 14 points in the third quarter, for a 32-19 lead.

The Lady Jets did pretty much of the same it did all game long in the final period, cementing its 16-point victory over the Lions (15-1) and moving on to the next round.

Dawkins scored a contest-high 26 points while Marquez contributed 20 in the win.

BKHSLT’s semifinal opponent has yet to be determined at press time. Please check for its foe.
