On a night celebrating their three seniors, the Wildcats got off to a nice start, with all five starters, including senior Alexa Wong and senior Maddie Moore, scoring in the first half. Sophomore Sara Chiala grabbed a rebound and was fouled on the put-back as time expired in the first half. Her free-throw gave the Cats a 20-17 lead at the midpoint.
In the third quarter, the Pioneers got hot from outside, sinking three 3-pointers and aggressively driving to the hoop. The Cats could not match the intensity, and their shots did not find the net. Cupertino coasted to a 45-34 victory to end the Wildcats’ regular season.
The Cats finish the season 6-6 in league (13-11 overall). They expect to start the CCS playoffs on Friday.
