POTTSTOWN — According to Hill School girls basketball coach Grey Simpson, opposing coaches often comment on how quick Deanna Mayza is with the ball and on defense, and that was probably painfully obvious to Friends’ Central in the first quarter of Tuesday afternoon’s opening round of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Tournament at Gillison Court.
The Hill senior shredded the defense for 11 points in the first period while stealing the ball four times, jump-starting the Blues to a 14-point lead. And that was only the beginning as Mayza poured in 25 total points – all in the first three quarters – to become the school’s all-time girls scoring leader while leading her team to a 64-44 win.
