Medina Journal-Register — BUFFALO — Medina used a big 33-10 scoring surge over the middle two periods to key a 61-35 victory over CSAT Friday in a Niagara-Orleans League girls basketball game.
Tanisha Robinson poured in a career high 30 points, including six threes to spearhead the Medina attack.
Alba Perez added 11 points, 18 rebounds and 8 steals and Abby Button 11 rebounds and 8 points for the Mustangs which improve to 5-3 in N-O action.
Leading by a narrow 13-12 margin, Medina used a big 16-4 second quarter surge to pull away. Robinson erupted for 14 points, including four threes, to lead that uprising as the Mustangs opened up a 29-16 half-time advantage.
“They used a box and one on Alba but the rest of the team stepped up and Tanisha really hit the open shots when she needed to,” Medina coach Ken Haak said.
Keeping the momentum, the Mustangs then put a lock on the win by outpointing CSAT 17-6 in the third period to stretch the advantage to 46-22. Button tallied six points, Robinson five and Perez, Kendra Hill and Olivia Hermann two arch to lead the Mustangs balanced attack during that stretch.
“I was really pleased with our team man-to-man defense,” said Haak . “We played hard and created a lot of turnovers.”
