STOCKTON – After Atwater came from behind to force overtime Saturday, Lathrop High outscored the Falcons 11-4 in the extra period to take third place in the Tony Contreras Delta Queen Classic with a 57-50 Spartans win at Stagg High School.
“We had a seven-point lead and allowed them to close the gap on us,” Lathrop coach Dwayne Davis said. “I thought we let them get too comfortable and we were playing uninspired defensive sets that gave them a couple of open 3-pointers to tie the game.
“This game should not have been close but we went 11 for 31 from the foul line and missed 14 open layups. We put tremendous pressure on the opposition with our defense but we have to capitalize on all our hard work.”
All-tournament team selection Mary Cotton led the Spartans with 21points, 15 rebounds, three assists and a pair of blocks. Danya Phillips flirted with a double-double with 11 points, nine steals, six rebounds and three blocks and Myani Thornton added 11points and three steals.
Lathrop totaled eight steals in the fourth quarter and overtime.
