Los Altos High’s Meg Enthoven drives to the basket Friday night against Los Gatos. She scored 24 of the Eagles’ 43 points.

Los Altos High girls basketball coach Jaclyn Brode calls her “Money Meg” and “Baby Bull” – and it was easy to see why Friday. The relentless Meg Enthoven scored more than half of the Eagles’ points in a 46-43 home loss to Los Gatos.

“She carried the team,” Brode said of the junior. “She was the best player on that floor.”
