Ketchikan’s Ashley Huffine scored four straight points at the end of the second quarter to give Centralia College some breathing room before the Blazers suffocated Tacoma in a 71-46 win.

Huffine carried that momentum into the second half with eight of her 15 points as she reached double figures for the fourth time in 23 games in the NWAC.

The freshman guard is averaging 5.1 points per game coming off the bench.

With her team nursing a 32-30 lead inside the final minute of the second quarter, Huffine knocked down a 3-pointer with 42 seconds left and later made a free throw on the final play of the half.

Centralia held Tacoma scoreless for the final 11:22 of the game, including the 10-minute fourth quarter. Tacoma went 0-for-12 from the field in the final frame and missed all eight 3-point attempts.

Centralia has won 10 straight games and sits atop the NWAC’s West division.
