Sacred Heart wins debut as No. 1

The Sacred Heart Cathedral girls’ basketball team’s first game as No. 1 in the nation went much like its previous 13.

Dominating defense, balanced scoring and another double-digit victory.

Jazmine Jackson scored 15 points as the Irish (14-0, 4-0 West Catholic Athletic League) knocked off up-and-coming Valley Christian

51-35 Friday. Ki-Ki Moore added 14 for Sacred Heart, which on Wednesday became the top-ranked team in the USA Today Super 25 poll.

Tierra Rogers scored eight points for the Irish, while Jackson and Lauren Bell combined to hold high-scoring Warriors guard A.J. Newton to five points. Jazzmyne Ross led Valley (15-2, 3-1) with 13.
