The University Liggett girls’ basketball team, 7-3 overall, has made easy work of the Michigan Independent Athletic Conference during the first half of the schedule.

Head coach Omar Ahart has led his Knights to a 6-0 record in the MIAC, winning the games by double digits.

“We’re playing much better as a team, Ahart said. “I knew it would take some time to get everyone on the same page, but now that we’re playing better, it’s time to take our game to the next level.”

The host Knights won the opening quarter 30-10 and led 53-21 at the half in their game against Southfield Christian.

Southfield Christian finished with 24 turnovers to Liggett’s six.

The Knights turned most of those turnovers into easy transition baskets.

Four players scored in double figures with sophomore Jessica Rotzoll netting 16 points, followed by sophomore Lola Ristovski with 14, senior Haleigh Ristovski with 13 and junior Lia Evangelista with 12.

All nine players for the Knights scored. Freshman Kendall McConico had six points, followed by senior Arianna Castillo with five, sophomore Mackenzie Lukas with three, freshman Anna Majewski with three and freshman Madison Jerome with two.

Earlier in the week, Liggett defeated Rochester Hills Lutheran Northwest 68-13, as Lola Ristovski had 14 points and 11 assists, and Haleigh Ristovski had 12 points.

Liggett improved to 7-3 overall.
