The Minarets Mustangs girls basketball team (9-2, 6-2 WSL) ended the regular season with two wins last week against Fowler and Riverdale.

First year coach Jeneene Bebout will lead her No. 4 seeded team into round one of the Central Section D-V playoffs at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Immanuel (17-6, 9-1), who is the No. 1 seed in the division. Immanuel was last year's Central Sequoia League co-champions, and the team again shared the league title this season with Selma. After loosing its first league game to Selma, 66-51, Immanuel went on to win nine straight, averaging 54 points a game while surrendering 37 a contest.

Immanuel overwhelmed Minarets earlier in the season, 70-20.

Minarets will have to find a way to contain Immanuel sophomore sensation Zoe March, averaging more than 25 points a game. The Eagles latest transfer is a one woman wrecking ball, capable of taking over a game, which she has done all season.

The Mustangs finished regular season play last week with two wins.

On Feb. 18, Minarets beat Fowler 49-38, with sophomore Kelea Kamalani scoring 23 points, while fellow sophomore Danielle Johnson added 10 points, and Patricia Thomasian scored seven and lead the team in rebounds with eight.

Feb. 21 the Mustangs secured their hold on second place in the league with a 44-34 road win against the Riverdale Cowboys. Freshman Kristen Berry lead the Mustang scoring with 15 points, with Johnson scoring 14.
