Emma Puleri’s floater beats buzzer, Mahar in thriller

To call the Lee girls’ basketball season uneven would be an understatement. After winning three of their first five games, the Wildcats dropped five straight to begin 2019, all by double digits.

The Wildcats have begun to turn that around, beating the Mahar Senators 45-43 Saturday on a buzzer-beater by Emma Puleri to win a second consecutive game for the first time this season.

The game started out methodically, as Mahar won each of the first two quarters 11-9, building a four-point lead going into the locker room. Neither side was able to garner much momentum in the first 16 minutes.

A lot of those points for the Senators came from second-chance points, something that has been a thorn in Lee’s side this season. Regularly starting an undersized starting lineup, coach Rick Puleri has had to deal with rebounding deficits all year, but in a game so close, he made a point of trying to correct that in the second half.

“We know we’re small,” Rick Puleri said. “We’ve been working hard at practice for a while now on boxing out better and they did a much better job in the second half of fighting and competing on the boards.”
