Girls' Basketball: Bishop Montgomery is on a roll

December 3, 2009 | 12:53 pm

Bishop Montgomery defeated the defending CIF Division V state champions Bellarmine-Jefferson, 66-59, in a quarterfinal last night at the Inglewood tournament. 

"We have a team that's establishing their own identity," said Bishop Montgomery coach Alexa Johnson. "They feel they can compete with anyone -- and they did." 

Sophomore Devon Brookshire scored 16 points for the Knights, and juniors Kristen Ale and Chelsey Aaron each contributed 15.

The Knights will face Inglewood in a semifinal on Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Inglewood High.

"It's going to be a big battle," Johnson said.  

Another Friday semifinal features Long Beach Poly-Beverly Hills at 6 p.m. at Inglewood. The complete schedule can be found at
