West’s Jordan Zackery knocked down four 3-pointers and scored a game-high 20 points as the Eagles doubled up CIC rival South 66-33 on Day 2 of the Alaska Airlines Classic.

Zackery scored 10 of her team’s first 30 points and finished 8-of-12 from the field. She finished 4-of-8 from downtown.

Early in the third quarter, South looked to make a game of things after pulling within 32-24 on consecutive buckets by Olivia Heartwell, Belen Marchant and Isabela Costa da Silva.

But the Eagles quickly slammed the door, responding with a 21-1 run. Zackery buried a 3-pointer during the run and Drussell and Karpow each converted an and-1 for the old-fashioned three-point play.

Marchant finished with seven points and 14 rebounds, the highest single-game total of the tournament. Heartwell led South with nine points.

The girls portion of the Classic wraps up Thursday with Point Hope taking on West in the student game at 10 a.m. and Grace Christian playing South at 2:30 p.m.
