Muir junior Jyah LoVett drops 61 points in girls basketball win over Burbank – Pasadena Star News

Start remembering the name Jyah LoVett, because in just a few games for the Muir girls basketball team, she has already produced some jaw-dropping numbers.

LoVett went on a scoring tear in Muir’s 72-66 win over Burbank on Tuesday night, finishing with 61 of her team’s points.

The Mustangs (4-2, 3-2) have played only six games during the coronavirus-shortened spring season, and they will face rival and Pacific League-leading Pasadena (8-4, 6-0) at home on Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

LoVett played at Providence High in Burbank as a freshman, was home-schooled her sophomore year and enrolled at Muir for her junior year. Her father Marcus LoVett is the first-year head coach at Muir.

“We needed every last one of those points too,” Marcus LoVett said of his daughter’s performance in the win over Burbank. “She’s having a great season. It’s been tough only having a few games, but we’re trying to get better and Jyah’s had some good games for sure.”
