The Warriors hit the long road for a pair of nonleague games and returned home victorious on both counts.
BC first went to San Juan Capistrano on Dec. 7 to face Saddleback Valley Christian and came away with a 46-29 win. Senior guard Diannia Demaziliere and junior guard Sara Hodges led the scoring with 10 points each. Senior center Kate Jensen and junior forward Brooke Hernandez each added eight points.
The Warriors improved to 4-2 last Friday after routing Excelsior Education Center High, 51-23, at Victorville. A balanced scoring attack included 10 points apiece from Hernandez and senior forward Emily Hammond, eight points from Demaziliere and six apiece from Jensen and senior forward Emily Janio.
The Warriors are currently playing at the Orangewood Academy Classic in Garden Grove. They face Calvary Chapel/Santa Ana in pool play on Thursday. BC is the defending tournament champion.
The Barons went 2-2 at the own Barons Hoop Challenge and finished in fourth place. They dropped a 69-34 decision Saturday to Esperanza in the third-place game. Junior guard Jasmine Matar led Fountain Valley with 13 points, and senior forward Carly Ducat scored eight.
The Oilers made it to the championship final of the Barons Hoop Challenge on Saturday where they were defeated, 55-45, by El Toro. Senior point guard Kelsey Minato poured in 23 points and collected 12 rebounds and was named all-tournament.
Huntington played its final two tournament games, including Friday's semifinal game against Fountain Valley, without senior guard Maya Kennedy, who was ill. The Oilers still went on to defeat the Barons, 55-45. Minato led all scorers with 20 points, and sophomore guard Paola Roa had 12 points.
