GROSSE POINTE — Aliezza Brown was challenged by her coach this week to lead her team, and the junior guard accepted the challenge to the tune of 27 points to lead Grosse Pointe South to a 71-38 victory against Grosse Pointe North in a district final Friday night.
Bre'Nae Andrews added 16 points and six rebounds to pace the Blue Devils.
"We challenged her (Brown) in film, and she didn't disappoint us. She said she was going to play, and she definitely came ready to play," South coach Kevin Richards said. "She's a competitive kid, and I'm really proud of her effort."
South jumped out against North by using full-court pressure to force North into nine first quarter turnovers and open up the game with a 13-3 run.
North cut South's lead to 27-17 midway through the second quarter, but South used a 16-2 run that stretched from the latter parts of the second quarter and early moments of the third to put the game away.
Sophomore forward Erin Armbruster had 10 points and 10 rebounds to lead North, which finished its season at 12-10 overall.
South (22-1) advances to play in regional action at 5:30 p.m. March 4 at Farmington High. The opponent is to be determined.
