Notes: Kenzie Black hit a pair of fourth quarter 3-pointers — her only points of the game — as Lovington rallied to beat Portales in their last meeting.

What 2 watch 4: Stout said Lovington like to dribble penetrate and kick the ball out for 3s. He said they did a good job on Black in the last meeting until the final few minutes.
