Pitman High junior Kaylin Randhawa was the catalyst down the stretch in a rivalry win over Turlock. She erupted for 10 points in the fourth quarter, guiding the Pride to a 53-44 victory.

Randhawa finished with a game-high 26 points, despite sitting for a long stretch in the third quarter with foul trouble.

The victory served two purposes: One, it vaulted the Pride back into the hunt for the Central California Conference title; and secondly, it knocked the Bulldogs (14-7, 4-2) out of a first-place tie with Atwater (16-4, 5-1).

Pitman (12-9, 4-2) has won four of its last five games, including two straight. During two games last week, Randhawa, a 6-foot-1 forward who can handle the basketball, averaged 18.5 points, 12 rebounds and four assists.
