TWENTYNINE PALMS — The Twentynine Palms High School girls varsity basketball team celebrated senior night by making easy work of Desert Hot Springs at home Tuesday, Feb. 6.

After opening the night with a 32-2 run in the first quarter, the Wildcats built a 51-4 halftime lead, then held the Eagles scoreless in the third quarter and went into the final quarter with a 73- 4 edge.

Leading scorers were Lindsey Scamman with 23 points, Destiny Dedmon with 13 points, Mary Carbiener with nine points and Jhordan Stanley with eight points.

“The team is starting to play its best basketball of the season,” Coach Tim Stanford said. “Team chemistry is at a season high. We are excited about our chances in the playoffs.”
