Immaculate Conception High School from Lodi, NJ defeated Curtis High School, 68-34, in the Hoops Queen Winter Ball hosted by Francis Lewis High School.

It is always a different game when a high school team from NJ ventures to NY because the element of the shot clock is added. IC used the shot clock to their advantage by scoring off several quick-hitting plays. They also forced Curtis to violate the shot clock several times.

IC led at the end of the first quarter 19-4. It is obvious to everyone why IC’s Breyenne Bellerand is D1 JMU-bound. She is a big time defensive player who attacks the basket with strength and speed. In the past year, she has also improved her jump shot with great accuracy. She earned 4 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 assists, and dropped 17 points.

ICHS Danielle Deoul is a tough center who is learning to play the stretch four. She has a quick release off her jump shot. She is tough to guard inside. Deoul added 4 rebounds, 2 steals, and 12 points.

Curtis High School’s Veronica Njie stepped it up for Curtis in the second quarter. Curtis kept it even with IC, adding 9 and allowing 9. They trailed at the half-time, 28-13. Njie attacked the lane and scored off jump shots. She also drew fouls. She had 3 steals, 1 assist, and 9 points.

Curtis’ Rayshell Brown played strong in the third quarter. She is good at getting past her first defender and drawing fouls in the paint. She went 8 for 8 from the foul line. Brown ended with 5 rebounds and 10 points.

IC led going into the third quarter 46-23.
