Sydney Beck's rare triple double led the way as Dublin raced past host Meridian for a tournament title Saturday night.
The Lady Lions dominated all challengers, winning their four games by an average margin of 24.8 points. They take a six-game win streak into the 2014 side of their schedule.
Huckabay was the only other area girls team in the event. The Lady Indians dropped their final pool game and the seventh-place game Saturday, finishing eighth.
Dublin 61, Meridian 37
Sydney Beck closed out the tournament with quite the exclamation point, unloading a triple-double on host Meridian Saturday night to pace the Lady Lions to the championship, 61-37.
Beck, a senior guard, tallied 12 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Distribution was key as the Lady Lions had 17 assists to Meridian's seven. Beck had three more helpers than Meridian's entire team.
A strong first half propelled the Lady Lions, as they were up 19-10 by the end of the first and 41-26 at the break.
Monica Montelongo joined Beck in double figures with 11 points, and eight other Lady Lions also scored. Shelby Templeton netted seven, Carley Belew six, Faith Faulkner five, Ajia Muro four, Mica Muro four, Carey Belew four and Amber James two.
Dublin 47, Axtell 39
It was the same story for Dublin in its final pool game earlier Saturday, as the Lady Lions built a big first-half lead. They were ahead 33-19 at the intermission before holding off Axtell 47-39.
Sydney Beck led all scorers with 14 points, and just as they did all weekend, the Lady Lions showed balance. Twin sisters Carley and Carey Belew posted twin point totals with six each. Mica Muro and Ajia Muro scored five each, Amber James netted four, Monica Montelongo three, London Jones two and Faith Faulkner two.
Italy 52, Huckabay 43
Two Lady Indians scored in double figures, but it wasn't enough for Huckabay in a 52-43 loss to Italy in the seventh-place game.
Makayla Metsgar scored 13 points and Erin Baker netted 11. Narda Fragoza and Taylor Lowe added seven points each and Bailey Woolridge had five.
Meridian 57, Huckabay 23
