Colorado Mesa’s Saane Lo’amanu scores two of her 10 points Friday night in the Mavs’ 84-76 victory over Simon Fraser in the Holiday Inn-Airport Thanksgiving Classic at Brownson Arena. In addition to her scoring, Lo’amanu’s defense was key for Mesa in the win.

Saane Lo’amanu’s defensive effort helps Mavs top Clan

Saane Lo’amanu took her coach’s instructions to heart: Be ready.
She was ready when she was called off the bench Friday night and she was ready down the stretch when she was called to defend Simon Fraser’s outstanding guard, Erin Chambers.
“He basically told a couple of us, be ready, there’s going to be a couple of us have to guard her,” Lo’amanu said after the No. 16 Mavericks gutted out an 84-76 victory over the Clan in the first round of the Holiday Inn-Airport Thanksgiving Classic at Brownson Arena.
Lo’amanu missed a couple of weeks of practice and the first two games with a strained knee, but showed no ill effects Friday, hitting the floor and hustling after loose balls.
