Jump's 36 points propel Panthers over St. Ignatius

Although Hannah Jump scored nearly half of Pinewood School’s points in Friday’s 79-46 thrashing of St. Ignatius in the quarterfinals of the Central Coast Section Open Division girls basketball playoffs, her coach was quick to point out that this win was a team effort.

Pinewood’s Hannah Jump drives to the basket in Friday’s playoff win over St. Ignatius.

“Obviously, she’s the best shooter around, but you have to give credit to her teammates for finding her in those situations,” Doc Scheppler said. “There were a lot of assists on those open shots. That was a complete team performance. It’s not just one player.”

Plagued by foul trouble and turnovers for most of the game, the Mountain View High girls basketball team had to feel fortunate just to get to overtime last week against Gunn.

But the Spartans’ luck ran out soon after Sophie Tobin’s buzzer-beating layin. The Titans overwhelmed them in overtime to prevail 50-45, spoiling Senior Night for Mountain View.

Once the momentum swayed Woodside Priory’s way, it seemed there was nothing the Pinewood School boys basketball team could do to stop it.

Priory erased a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, tying the game with 12 seconds to play on an NBA-range 3-pointer from Ayo Aderboye. The 6-foot-6 junior then made a steal near midcourt and raced to the rim for a dunk with two ticks left, lifting his team to a 58-56 home win.

Games often don’t end well for basketball teams that make just four field goals in the second half. But the Mountain View High girls not only survived a 4-for-20 shooting slump, they actually increased their lead to beat Homestead 48-37 Friday.
