Wed. S.J. girls and boys: Preziosi gets to 1,000 mark

Posted: February 28, 2014

The number of points Bella Preziosi needed to score Wednesday night to reach 1,000 for her basketball career was certainly within her capabilities.

Fourteen would bring her to the magic mark, and the Haddon Township junior shooting guard had scored more than that in each of her last four games.

But whatever suspense might have remained, Preziosi quickly eliminated it. She scored 14 in the first quarter of Haddon Township's 58-41 win over visiting Paulsboro in a Colonial Conference game. Preziosi hit the milestone on a layup, assisted by Morgan Lenahan.

Lenahan, a sophomore point guard, had 17 points, five steals, and seven assists. Preziosi also finished with 17 points. Junior forward Katie Burns had 16 points and eight rebounds.

Cape-Atlantic semifinals. Lauren Legler had 13 points, nine rebounds, and six assists to power second-seeded Middle Township past No. 3 Holy Spirit, 51-37. Lauryn Fields scored 15.

No. 4 Wildwood Catholic took down top-seeded Cedar Creek, 61-52.

Nonleague. Cheyenne Clark's end-of-game flurry lifted host Deptford past Audubon, 48-46. Clark hit two free throws with less than 10 seconds remaining. She then stole the inbounds pass and scored the go-ahead layup. She had 20 points and 17 rebounds. Destini Clark added 12 points and 11 rebounds.

Sierra Forman, a senior guard for Palmyra, scored her 1,000th career point on a free throw in the first quarter of a 52-49 loss to visiting GCIT. She had 12 points. Taylor Favinger led GCIT with 15, and Brandi Chester scored 14.

Colonial. Saleem Little scored 16 points as Paulsboro cruised to a 60-47 win at Haddon Township.
