No overtime or last-minute dramatics. The outcome of the second meeting between Roosevelt and Locke on Wednesday was never in doubt.
Dawn Pellerin had 18 points and 10 rebounds and Zenobia Tyson Hunt scored 12 as Roosevelt coasted to a 57-41 victory in the Southeastern Conference game at Locke.
Roosevelt improved to 11-1 in conference with three games to play to inch closer to its fifth conference title in seven seasons. Locke, which suffered a 57-53 overtime defeat to Roosevelt last month, fell to 9-3 and dropped to third in the conference standings.
"We didn't let them drive the baseline," Pellerin said. "That's how they score most of their points. Once we stopped that, it wasn't close at all."
