The Lady Busters got things going early and jumped on top of Marvericks and never looked back and controlled the score board in the first half with a 21 point lead at intermission 34-13. Three time KJCCC Player of the week and NJCAA player of the week, sophomore Tamara Jones led the scoring barrage for Garden City with 21 points and 9 rebounds, sophomore Deni Jacobs dropped in 18 and sophomore Tahlia Pope added 15 and every player on the roster scored in the game.
