It’s one thing to crack the starting lineup. It’s another to deliver in the big moments like Juneau’s Kendyl Carson.

Credit the freshman for stepping up her game when the Pepperdine University coaches rewarded her with a larger role on the D1 women’s basketball team.

In her first game as a starter, she set up the game-winning basket against Loyola Marymount that gave the Waves their first win in the West Coast Conference.

Two games later against Pacific, she reached double figures for the first time in 19 games.

Carson, of Juneau-Douglas High fame, logged career highs in minutes (30), points (14), rebounds (5), field goals (5) and free throws (3).

The 6-foot forward is averaging 4.1 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.
