katOAK LAWN, Ill. | A cross-divisional contest turned ugly quickly with T.F. South's girls' basketball team failing to find any rhythm, losing to Oak Lawn 73-32, Friday night.

The Rebels (14-3, 6-1) fell into an early deficit with the score 15-3 until the final seconds of the first quarter when Kameron Dickens shot a contested bucket.

"We've got to go home and we've got to recover from this one. Forget about it," said T.F. South coach Steve Breshock. "That is the easiest way. Forget about it."

Ren'Cia Rolling was the only Rebel in double digits with 12 points, and half of those came in the opening of the second half on two quick 3s.

"Those two possessions, we ran our offense correctly with our energy and what we were looking for," Breshock said. "Right after that, we stopped. We didn't consistently run our offense like we were supposed to."

Several Rebels said they were embarrassed by the final score, and the team decided to leave before the T.F. South boy's contest to rest up for their game today at Joliet Central.

"This was our fourth game this week, so we are probably a little out of gas, but we're not using that as an excuse," Breshock said.

For Oak Lawn, Spartans coach Janet Meyers said the win was big over a tough and fast T.F. South team.

"Our goal was to take control of the game early and get them on their heels," said Oak Lawn coach Janet Meyers.

The Spartans also cashed in a record breaking performance by their senior guard LaTondra Brooks. In the first quarter, Brooks broke the Spartan career scoring record set in 1999 by Kathy Krzak. Brooks has a career 1,246 points.

"She pretty much does it all for us. She can score, she's a phenomenal passer and even defensively, she gets a lot of steals for us," Meyers said. "I was happy to see someone so unselfish break the all-time scoring record."
