Ford, Johnson lead Western to 71-31 victory over Spalding


Kisha Ford, a 6-foot sophomore guard, scored 29 points and Dana Johnson, a dominating 6-foot, 2-inch senior center, added 26 as Western opened its season with a 71-31 victory over Archbishop Spalding.

The victory came in the first round of the Project Survival-Greater Baltimore Women Inc. Second Annual Pre-Christmas Mixer Invitational Tournament at the College of Notre Dame.

"Everybody played and got quality time," said Western coach Breezy Bishop. "We really didn't play that well, but we accomplished our goal of having all 10 players contribute."

Spalding turned the ball over 29 times.

In other games, Alfreda Jefferson scored 23 and Nicole Boykin added 16, as Calvin Coolidge (D.C.) defeated Lake Clifton, 67-38.

Jefferson, a 5-5 sophomore, dominated the second half for Coolidge. She scored five field goals, three on fast-break layups, and connected on 10-of-11 free throws to help the Lady Colts expand their lead.
