EVANSTON — The Lincoln Park girls basketball team literally couldn’t catch up to Evanston on Saturday afternoon as the Wildkits trounced the Lions 64-38 at Beardsley Gym. Evanston dominated from the opening tip thanks to a number of transition baskets.
With the Wildkits’ starters barely playing, it was junior guard Morgan Muno leading the way with 12 points off of the bench for Evanston. Sophomore forward Wali Deutsch also received significant playing time and showed a pretty shooting touch on her way to nine points.
While Evanston’s starters didn’t play much, they did help the Wildkits jump out to a 19-2 lead. Over and over again, Lincoln Park was unable to get back on defense and Evanston exploited that for a number of fastbreak buckets.
Senior center Alecia Cooley scored six of the Wildkits’ first 11 points with a putback, a bank shot and a layup in transition.
