Mary Star High Girls Basketball Holds Off Calvary Chapel

Mary Star High girls basketball only one once out of 16 games last season, but they have seemingly turned for the better in seven games thus far in 2013-2014.

By virtue of their 39-38 home victory over Calvary Chapel of Downey Saturday, the Stars are now 3-4 and on a two-game winning streak under first year coach Victor Tuberosi.

Sure, the Stars compete in an extremely difficult Camino Real League that features a CIF-Southern Section champion (St. Monica of Santa Monica), two CIF-SS runners-up (St. Paul of Santa Fe Springs and St. Joseph's of Lakewood), and a CIF-SS semifinalist (Cantwell Sacred-Heart of Montebello), which can be troublesome for a team that starts three freshmen, a sophomore and a junior, but don't sell this team short.

Freshman guard Angela Pisano scored 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting, and 3-of-5 from the free throw line, and added five assists for Mary Star, who trailed the majority of this back-and-forth game with the Grizzlies (4-3), with neither team holding a double-digit lead.

Pisano's driving layup gave the Stars a 35-34 lead with three minutes to play, and she also hit a 15-foot jumper to give them a 39-34 advantage with 1:48 remaining.

Junior guard Marina Vitalich, a standout softball pitcher, scored 10 points to go along with four assists and five steals, while freshman guard Amanda Vitalich contributed with 4 points and 7 steals for Mary Star, who will next host Animo Leadership of Inglewood on Thursday.
