"Once they got back into the flow of the game, everything took care of itself," said Rebels Coach Kenny Fisher, whose team improved to 13-3 and 4-0 in league play and is ranked third in CIF Southern Section Division IV-A.
Fortunately for the Rebels, the Panthers (7-10, 3-3) scored only two points on two-of-four shooting from the free-throw line in the first 2:38 of the third quarter.
After freshman forward Deanna Watson broke the Rebels scoring drought, Prep broke the game wide open.
They ended the quarter on a 19-2 run.
The slow start to the second half was likely due to starters Jordan Toyama and Robinson getting inserted back into the lineup. After the slugging beginning, everything ran smoothly.
Freshman guard Megan Musashi keyed the third-quarter surge, as she scored all nine of her points in the stanza.
Senior forward Christina Watson added seven points and nine rebounds.
Flintridge Prep has now defeated its four league opponents by an average of 36.5 points a game.
"All of our games have been blowouts, so you don't really know where you stand," Fisher said. "We'll know where we stand Thursday."
On Thursday, Flintridge Prep, the reigning league champion, hosts Westridge (10-2, 4-0), the only other league undefeated.
"I think we're going into that game confident, but not cocky," said Myers, the reigning league most valuable player. "We know if we play our game right, we should be successful."
