After one of the best quarters of the girls basketball season, Westview High had to survive three of the worst quarters.

But despite 30 turnovers, the host Wolverines managed to hold off Carlsbad 46-45 in the quarterfinals of the Black Division in the Wolverine Shootout on Friday night.

Westview (9-5) was on its way to an easy win in the first quarter, building an impressive lead that stood at 26-9 by quarter’s end.

The rest of the game was less than that.

Westview scored just 20 points over the final three quarters while Carlsbad (8-4) used a smothering full-court press to gain enough shots on the offensive end to score 36 points.

The Lancers had the final shot, but Niky Piancastelli’s attempt from the top of the key was too long.

“All guns were blazing in the first quarter,” Westview coach Frank Quinones said. “We got our shots and we were handling their press.

“But those last three quarters were awful. You won’t win many games playing like this.”

Westview, which never trailed, got a free throw by senior Macy Gipson with 2:24 to go for a 46-41 lead only to have Carlsbad get a basket from Nalei’a Brackett and a pair of free throws from Kiana Pestonjee to slice the deficit to one point with 35.1 seconds to play.

That was the last scoring of the night.

“I was nervous with 11 seconds left,” said Gipson, who took game scoring honors with 20 points. “I knew we could pull it together right there.

“It’s not like we haven’t done this before. Thirty turnovers is about our norm.”

In the Gold Division, Mission Hills and Mt. Carmel will play a rematch of their game in the SoCal Holiday Prep Classic in today’s championship game at 7:30 p.m.

Mission Hills survived a late rally to defeat Brentwood 59-52 after Mt. Carmel downed Lakeside 63-57 in overtime in Friday’s semifinals.

Mission Hills won that first meeting with Mt. Carmel 59-47.
