Avondale Westview proved why they're undefeated and a force to reckon with in Division I this year.

The Lady Knights quickly went on a 12-0 run in the first quarter and outscored Kingman High 25-6 in the second quarter. They beat the Lady Bulldogs with their quickness - their trapping caused KHS to commit 27 turnovers - and used their outside shooting to secure a 76-33 win Tuesday.

"We knew that. We told the girls (Monday) to expected a tough game," said KHS coach Danny Gonzalez.

Westview (14-0) has outscored its opponents 1,088-326 this season and has an average margin of victory of 54 points. The Lady Knights won by 80 against Avondale La Joya Community to open the season and the closest any team has gotten to victory was 27 points on Nov. 20 when Tolleson lost 66-39.

"They came out aggressive on us and we knew what we needed to do and at the start of the game we were doing it," Gonzalez said. "After the first quarter, it's 25-16 and you're thinking, 'Wow, 16 is pretty good.' But we allowed them to score 25 and then the second quarter we stopped doing our game plan."

Westview led 50-19 at halftime and 63-23 at the end of the third quarter.

Rachel Arave led KHS with 16 points while Taylor Reed added 12 points.

"Nobody wants to go through that, and in the past it's always made my teams better," Gonzalez said. "This bunch, last year things like this were happening almost every game. Did it make them better? Yes. We are better now. We are better today than we were yesterday. It's not the end of the world. It's done and we can't do anything about it."

KHS is 7-2 after going 2-1 at the Pepsi Holiday Tournament in Flagstaff. The Lady Bulldogs defeated Grand Canyon 62-6 on Saturday and were led by Desirae Gonzalez with 15 points. Reed and Alison Owen had 12 points in the win. Desirae and Reed were selected to the all tournament team.

The Lady Bulldogs will look to regroup tonight when they host Prescott. The Badgers (7-3) are coming off a 61-57 win over Sedona Red Rock last week. KHS will travel to Flagstaff on Friday.

"The girls are aware to let it go. We can't change it now. We have to worry about (tonight's) game," Gonzalez said. "Are the teams coming up going to be as tough as this? No. But if we don't come out focused, then we can make it look as tough."
