|Result:||1 Win; 1 Loss|
|Score:||ZIS 18 - TASIS 17; TASIS 12 - ICSL 10|
The first game of the ISSL Tournament was a very tight one and ended in a narrow defeat when ZIS scored a go-ahead basket in the final minute. Our Lady Tigers played aggressively both on offense and defense and got great performances from new JV players Cecilia Romanini '20 and Meilan Russell '20. This was their first game, and they performed beyond the coaches’ expectations. Once again, great team zone defense helped keep ZIS from scoring much. The Tigers also got strong offensive performances from Mariko Yamada '19, Olivia Haunso '19, Trinity Mack '20, and Yulia Mochalnikova '19.
Game #2 was another tight one, but this time the Tigers prevailed thanks to a last-second basket by Carolina Zanon di Valgiurata '21, who was playing her first game on the JV team. Sonia Artemieva '19 led a very strong defense while Trinity Mack '20 and Yulia Mochalnikova '19 supported each other on offense. It was also a good game for Cecilia Long '19 and Maria Vitoria Mourao Clemente '19, who put a lot of energy and initiative toward scoring and defending the basket. It was a great weekend overall for this young TASIS team.
