Girls basketball.

University knows that to become a top-10 Orange County girls basketball team, it needs to defeat lesser opponents.

After beating Aliso Niguel by three earlier this season, the Trojans (6-3) won, 62-44, Thursday night in a nonleague game at University.

While the first contest was a back-and-forth affair, Thursday's game was decided early. The Trojans began on an 11-0 run and never trailed.

The Wolverines (6-6) wanted the game to be up-tempo and pressed the entire way. The Trojans guards were able to beat it by finding the opposite side of the court wide open, and then it was a layup drill for most of the night.

Leading 19-8 after the first period, the Trojans didn't stop attacking. Melodie Yu found herself open for easy layups and after two consecutive layups for Dana Bossenmeyer, the lead grew to 19, and at half it was 36-17.

In the third, the Wolverines made a push. Point guard Chloe Sharabba found wide-open teammates and scored a right-handed scoop shot to cut the lead 43-30. Many of the baskets came when the Trojans went to their reserves.

When the fourth quarter rolled around, the Trojans went to Yu for the first possession and brought the lead back up to 15. Yu then sparked a 7-0 run as she scored on a bank shot, and Sabrina Hsu hit a 3-pointer and a driving layup. With less than four minutes remaining, the Trojans' lead was back to 19.

Yu scored 20 to lead the Trojans while Sharabba had a game-high 21 for the Wolverines.
