Girls Basketball: Mehta and Palmer lead International to home win over Convent

By Matthew Snyder

At times during Friday’s Bay Counties League West game between the International and Convent girls basketball teams, Jaguars players Shayna Mehta and Danielle Palmer were simply unguardable.

Palmer poured in 12 first-quarter points and Mehta followed with 15 points in the second quarter, but International weathered severe offensive stagnation and a fierce Convent comeback in the second half before they finished strongly in a 59-43 home victory.

Girls Basketball: Convent pulls away from Bay in Urban Shootout opener

By Jeremy Balan

For Bay head girls basketball coach Larry Minnich, Thursday afternoon presented a reunion of sorts.

Minnich and the Breakers took on Convent — a team he led to a Division V state championship in 2003 — in the first round of the Urban Holiday Shootout at Kezar Pavilion.

Now a player from that team, Jennifer Hum-Traverso, is coaching Convent and the first-year head coach made the reunion an unpleasant one for Minnich with a 66-43 victory over the Breakers.
