After Kingman's Taylor Reed had a 14-point third quarter, head coach Danny Gonzalez told her this was the type of play he was looking for from her.

Reed finished with a game-high 24 points to lead the Lady Bulldogs to a 59-42 road victory over Lake Havasu Tuesday night.

"That's just talent right there," Gonzalez said. "When she came to the bench for the fourth quarter, I told her, 'Now you're playing basketball.' Like when she drove down to the baseline, made that cut and still made the shot."

Reed's 14-point performance allowed Kingman to get some breathing room in a game that was close to that point.

"That was our team picking each other up," Reed said. "We knew we wanted this win. We're at the point in the season where we know what each other can do because we've been playing together for so long."

The Lady Bulldogs had a two-point lead (14-12) after the first quarter thanks to swift movement up the court. Kingman used four passes to advance the ball, hitting Reed and Desirae Gonzalez down low for the open shot.

Meanwhile, Havasu struggled with the Kingman press as the Lady Bulldogs forced the Lady Knights away from the middle of the court to the wings.

The press troubles continued for Havasu in the second quarter, and while Kingman had trouble finishing off turnovers, they were able to outscore Havasu thanks to more scoring opportunities.

The third quarter was the Reed show. She used steals off the press to lead to a barrage of breakaway layups.

"We talked about being patient," said LHHS head coach Kevin Eppler. "And that was working well until we hit half court. And then it seemed like we'd get nervous and commit a turnover.

"Give credit to Kingman. That's a well coached, disciplined team and we have to work on our transition defense."

The fourth quarter saw Lake Havasu reduce the errors but the defense still struggled against Kingman's motion offense, which led to an open shooter in the paint.

In addition to Reed's 24, Kingman got 12 points from Desirae Gonzalez.

Taylor Yost led Havasu with 15, including 9-of-10 from the free throw line and eight from Haley Smith.

Lake Havasu (8-5) is now off for the winter break, returning to action on Jan. 4 when they host Parker (5-4). Kingman (8-3) returns to action on Dec. 30 when they travel to Flagstaff (3-4).
