WESTLAKE VILLAGE - Whether or not a rivalry grows between the Antelope Valley High and Bellarmine-Jefferson girls' basketball teams remains to be seen, especially since the schools are no longer in the same division. If one does develop, however, then it could be surmised the Antelopes will look for revenge, once again, after Bell-Jeff held on for a 43-36 victory in the Oaks Christian Shootout on Saturday afternoon. The victory was the second in three games for Bell-Jeff (16-6)

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — As leaders on the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' basketball team, Rishonda Napier and Jasmine Smith have experienced the rigors and pressure of compiling deep runs in the CIF Southern Section playoffs. The two were instrumental in leading the Guards to a state championship in 2009, as well as helping the team to the semifinals a year ago. With Bell-Jeff trailing Antelope Valley on Wednesday in a Division III-A quarterfinal contest, the Guards needed Napier and Smith to step up. And step up they did. Both juniors led the way with fine performances in the fourth quarter to fuel a torrid and gutsy comeback by the Guards in a 77-73 victory at Bell-Jeff.
