San Diego Girls' Basketball : Mt. Carmel Comes Back to Beat Madison, 56-47

December 18, 1985

SAN DIEGO — Mt. Carmel rallied from a seven-point halftime deficit Tuesday to beat Madison, 56-47, in what may be the first of three meetings between the girls' basketball teams over the next 11 days.

If Mt. Carmel (3-1) and Madison (2-1) both win today in the first round of the Mt. Carmel Tournament, they will meet again Friday in the semifinals. Both teams are also entered in Madison's Warhawk-Coca Cola Tournament, which runs Dec. 26-28.

Madison Coach RaNae Seaman said her team showed its youth Tuesday against Mt. Carmel.

"Our inexperience really showed," said Seaman, who starts a freshman and a sophomore. "In the first half, our offense did well. It all went downhill from there."

Center Tina Williams led Mt. Carmel with 21 points. Madison was paced by forward Lisa Glassford, with 14 points, and point guard Lisa Schuster, with 11.

In other nonleague action:

Crawford 61, Mission Bay 44--Shawndell Reddic scored 30 points to lead the Colts (3-0) past the Buccaneers at Crawford. The Colts led, 18-6, after one quarter and coasted to the win. Karla Salmi added 19 points for Crawford. Mission Bay was led by Cristine Willis, with 14 points.

In the Grossmont League:

Santana 59, Granite Hills 33--The Sultans extended their league record to 3-0 and their overall mark to 5-2 with their victory at Granite Hills. Forward Leslie Ellis led Santana with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Paula Hutchings scored 14 for the Sultans and Maria Scott had 10 rebounds.

Monte Vista 57, Helix 41--The Monarchs (3-0, 9-0) remained undefeated with their win over the visiting Highlanders. Paula Mascari scored 25 points for Monte Vista, and Becky Aikin added 14 points, 9 rebounds and six steals. Helix fell to 2-1 in league play.
