Duchesne Big Three clicking in win over Westbury Christian #GirlsTXJamboree

This game started out like it was going to be a Westbury Christian blowout however Duchesne turned things around quickly and won 53-48

Duchesne's  senior Gabby Castillo is one of the most improved players in the area and she was simply on fire from downtown, uptown and even out of town as she led all scorers with 23 points. Her talented sophomore sister, Alex, blew me away a couple of years ago as I watched her drop 8 or 9 threes in a game, she's poised beyond her years and added 17 while junior Illya Babineaux, who has become more muscular and when you combine that with her skill set, she's showing legitimate D1 inside moves at 6'3 added a double-double which included 12 points.The supporting cast played well and contributed to their victory

Emer Nichols was solid on the inside for Westbury Chrsitian, she and talented point guard Marissa Banfield led their squad with 15 points each, Nichols, along with Tyra Cormie, Laura Daulton and Mia Perkins when she returns, give the Wildcats one of the most talented front lines in the state so this will be a different looking team when they are 100%. Natalie Hamilton was solid, Lea Salibi showed she could nail the .long range, this will help open things up on the inside but always remember the game starts at the one and Banfield is everything and more that I thought she was going be at 10
