Dominique Hunter had 13 points, 21 rebounds, six blocks and one bloody nose as the Gateway girls’ basketball team won an often frantic and always physical game over host Lick-Wilmerding 48-24.
The 6-foot-1 Hunter controlled the paint on both sides of the court from the outset, putting up four points and grabbing seven rebounds during a 14-0 game-opening run for the Gators (6-1). The senior fought through aggressive defense and constant double-teams for the first 30 minutes before finally heading to the bench after absorbing an inadvertent blow to the face with 90 seconds left and the game comfortably in hand.
"[Dominique] is an amazing player because she changes games by herself," Gateway coach Michael Coffino said. "To put up those kind of numbers when she was a little frustrated and probably didn’t play her best is incredible."
Sophomore Camila Rosen added 10 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Gators, who never led by less than seven after their fast start. They put the game away with a 16-6 third-quarter run.

The Mustangs put the game out of reach in the third quarter, going on a 15-0 tear over a four-minute stretch, pushing their lead to 29 over El Camino heading into the fourth. Six players scored in the quarter for Lincoln, led by Jang’s seven points.
