OSAN AIR BASE, South Korea – It wasn’t in a Korea Cup Tournament final, but coach Jonathan Van said his Daegu girls basketball team would take their latest win over Humphreys just the same.

Bethani Newbold scored 11 points, Lexie Berry grabbed 10 rebounds and Jya Van blocked 12 shots as the Warriors edged the Blackhawks 27-24 on Saturday in the DODEA-Korea Cup tournament at Osan.
