“Christina was able to pressure their offense and she used her quickness very well,” Rankin said. “She’s getting better every day.”

Kaylynn Waters chipped in with 17 points for the winners, while LaShauna Brothers added 16 markers and seven rebounds. JaNia McPhatter tossed in 15 points with six rebounds and five steals.
