Two in a row for Miller

The Rebels used tight defense and just enough offense to win their second straight CIF title, taking out Los Osos 51-40. There seemed to be a lid on the Los Osos basket in the fourth, as the Grizzlies only scored four points in the final 6:16 of the game. Star center Cierra Warren battled foul trouble throughout, fouling out with 3:18 left.

Miller gets some distance

A 16-3 run to end the third period has the Rebels up 40-30 going into the fourth. Los Osos started the period out well, scoring the first five points to take a 27-24 lead, but the Rebels awoke with consecutive 3-pointers by Chloe Wells and Lola Wells. Tamicka Mackall ended the third with a trey as well for Miller.

Nailbiter so far

Shineque Phillips’ layup with roughly 10 seconds left in the first half gives Miller a 24-22 lead at halftime. Los Osos’ offense settled down and committed far fewer turnovers in the second period, while the Miller 3-point shooting has been non-existent, as the Rebels only have one trey.

Both Cierra Warren (Los Osos) and Brianna Hall (Miller) are in foul trouble with 3 each. Lola Wells leads Miller with 10 points, while Michelle Dobbs has five for the Grizzlies.
