Game Recap

Sophomore guard, Patil Yacoubian lead the Lady Minutemen in scoring with 26 points and seven steals before picking up her fourth foul late in the game and having to sit most of the fourth quarter. Freshman shooting guard Emily Jordan added 12 points and three assists in her high school debut, while senior point guard Cherise Masuda contributed eight points and five steals before getting into early foul trouble and having to sit for long stretches of the game. Freshman center Mikayla Murphy made her presence felt with eight points and five rebounds but it was Coach Smalley’s “Bench Mob” that sparked the team with a second quarter surge that had the Monrovia High Tuesday night crowd on their feet. “Our Freshman twins, Hope Hayashida and Talinana Marganian were fantastic off the bench and gave us electrifying energy. Mireille “Big Red” Minassian sizzled off the bench some big plays as well,” said Coach Smalley. All 11 players scored and the team was able to start their season off with a win on the road. The Lady Minutemen will face a tough Glendale team in the first round of the San Marino Tournament next Monday at 7:30 PM.
