The Braves, led by Sira Toure’s 26 points, never trailed in beating the Islanders.
Toure, who was 9-for-17 shooting, made two quick 3-pointers that got her team rolling. In the first quarter, she scored 15 points, which helped the Braves lead by as much as 17 in the opening quarter.
Braves coach Lane Schumacher saw a difference in his team early Friday that wasn’t there in Thursday’s loss to Seattle Prep. He credited Toure’s quick offense for igniting Kamiakin.
“Whenever you open up like that, that’s going to help get the rest of your players confidence,” Schumacher said.
The Islanders were led by Jess Blakeslee’s 13 points and Julia Blumenstein’s 11.Kevin Manning, staff writer
