PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Rewers reaches 1,000-point club early in T-Wolves win

| January 13, 2021 1:20 AM

SANDPOINT — On their first possession of the game, the Lake City Timberwolves broke the press, and Brooklyn Rewers cut to the hoop and converted a pass from Brenna Hawkins for a milestone.

The basket gave Rewers 1,001 career points, and the Timberwolves went on to beat the Sandpoint Bulldogs 55-26 in Inland Empire League play Tuesday night at Les Rogers Court.

Rewers, who has signed to play at Michigan State, finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds for Lake City (7-4, 4-2 IEL).

“It was a special moment for her, a special moment for the team,” Lake City coach James Anderson said. “She’s been so consistent the last four years. Such a great kid; she deserved it.”

Kendall Pickford added 15 points and six assists for the Timberwolves, and Hawkins had six points and eight rebounds.

“We just came out with a team energy that was just palpable from the beginning,” Anderson said. “I just loved how hard we played; it was one of our best games of the season.”

Kaylee Banks scored nine points to lead Sandpoint (5-6, 2-4).

SPIRIT LAKE — Once the Tigers shook off the defensive cobwebs from not playing since Dec. 30, they didn’t turn back to open Intermountain League play.

“Offensively, especially in the first half, we looked really good,” Timberlake coach Matt Miller said. “We looked a little rusty defensively, but the girls ended up doing a better job in the second half. We were struggling to arrive on the catch and knowing the personnel in the first half, but did a better job in the second half.”
