After losing two straight games, Bamberg couldn’t afford to drop another one and turned to rookie DaJonee Hale of Anchorage.

The former NAIA player of the year pumped in a team-high 19 points and added six rebounds to help Bamberg beat Rhein-Main 79-57 and maintain its second-place status in the country’s second-league south division standings.

Hale, of Houston High fame, ranks fourth in the league with 18.3 points per game.

She had reached double figures in her first 10 games as a pro before being held to nine points in her last game, in large part because she came off the bench for the first time.

Hall responded with her best scoring output in five games to help Bamberg improve to 9-4, a half-game ahead of third-place Jahn Muenchen.
