Starks’ double-double keys ISA’s victory 

Angela Starks’ double-double helped the International Studies Academy girls’ basketball team defeat St. Vincent of Petaluma 55-40 in her team’s first appearance at the Urban Holiday Shootout at Kezar Pavilion Thursday.

The Cobras (6-2) used speed, possession and a physical presence to control most the game, with Starks posting 25 points and 11 rebounds and teammate Brittney Allen chipping in 22 points — including five 3-pointers.

"We’re a young team, so this is just progress," Cobras coach Noel Robinson said. "We’ve got a long way to go, but this is a good win for us."

The Mustangs (4-1) kept the contest close in a back-and-forth first half. But after Allen converted a pair of free throws for a 20-19 lead midway through the second quarter, the gap steadily widened, stretching to a game-high 17-point advantage late in the fourth.

Redwood (Larkspur) 50, Convent 32

Jenny Anderson had 18 points to lead the Giants (4-1) over the Cubs (4-1) at Kezar Pavilion.

Redwood had a comfortable 32-12 advantage at the half, but Convent scored the first 12 points of the third quarter to cut the deficit to eight. Anderson answered with four straight points to key an 8-0 run to allow the Giants to regain control.

Grace Bishop had 10 points for the Cubs, who will face Galileo today at 3:30 back at Kezar in a consolation bracket game. Redwood advances to play Eastside Prep at 6:30 p.m. in the semifinals.
