KINGMAN - At Lake Havasu, senior Desirae Gonzalez recorded a double-double with 39 points and 17 rebounds, and Kingman raced past Lake Havasu Monday, 62-37.
After a 16-13 first quarter with Kingman (6-0 D-III) ahead, the Lady Bulldogs used a 17-2 second quarter to put Havasu (4-2) away in the non-section contest.
Kingman learned some great news over the break. Senior point guard Makenna Taylor did not break her foot in December's Pepsi Tournament and is back on the court. Taylor scored one point, dished out six assists and grabbed five rebounds.
Courtney Mossor tallied nine points for the Lady Bulldogs. Kim Carroll added four, Christina Thames had two and Katie Ruggles finished with one.
Kingman hosts Maryvale (4-3) at 7 p.m. today in another non-section game.

Lee Williams (4-3 D-III) outscored Mohave (1-6) in the second quarter by 10 points, 16-6, on its way to the win.
Snay also grabbed six rebounds for the Lady Vols. Madi Arave scored 11 points. Jackie Millim contributed four, and Madi McGlathery and Mya Radler each had two. McGlathery also pulled down six rebounds. Gabby Schmidt made a free throw for Lee Williams.
The Lady Vols hosted Alhambra (3-3) Tuesday. Results were not available by deadline. Lee Williams next plays at Phoenix Carl Hayden (1-5) at 7 p.m. Thursday.
BOYS BASKETBALL: Mohave 48, Lee Williams 39
At Mohave, the T-birds put down a Lee Williams comeback attempt and held on for a 48-39 non-section win.
After trailing by 10 at the half, 26-16, Lee Williams (5-2 D-IV) closed the gap to four points at the end of the third quarter, 35-31. Mohave (3-4) withstood the challenge with a 15-8 fourth to get the win.
Giancarlo Narvarte, Lee Williams' senior center and University of Colorado commit for high jumping, tweaked his back in the game. Narvarte finished with eight points and went through last season dealing with a back issue.
"Giancarlo reinjured his back," said LWHS boys basketball coach Ray Smith. "I am going to shut him down for a while."
Braxton Burgess scored a team-high 14 points for the Vols. Marco Narvarte added six, Nate Cottrell contributed six, and Chaise Shropshire, Lawrence Campbell and Kael Juelfs each had two.
The No. 3-rated Vols were at No. 10 Phoenix Northwest Christian (3-1) Tuesday in a non-section game. Results were not available by deadline.
