So how do you top a 13-point, 17-rebound performance? If you’re Maria Loor on the Newtown girls’ basketball team you score 30 points, grab 24 boards and score the winning layup with three seconds left in the fourth quarter to lift the Pioneers to a 61-60 win over Robert F. Wagner Friday.

Ally Zarate dished the ball to Loor, who scored 13 points in the fourth quarter for Newtown (15-7, 12-3 Queens III-B), which trailed 45-36 after three quarters.

And without leading scorer Monica Pahl, who scored 10 points including her 1,000th career point but fouled out at the end of the third quarter, Loor’s offensive explosion was especially huge.

“I thought we were in bad shape at that point, but Maria started to pick it up and took over the game,” Newtown coach Bob Kunkel said. “She did a great job. It was incredible to watch her at the end of the game.”

Loor’s 13-point, 17-rebound outing came in a 60-41 win over American Studies Thursday. In that victory Pahl added 26 points.

East Islip 65, Cardozo 46. Britni Bolden had 13 points and Marissa Flagg added 14 points in the Clyde Frazier Jr. Slam Jam Memorial Saturday at Holy Cross High School. Junior Giuliana Caen had a career-high 16 points, 12 rebounds and 7 blocks for East Islip.

Forest Hills 34, Renaissance 23. Katie Gilbert (14 points, 13 rebounds) and Albana Gega (10 points, 14 rebounds) each had double-doubles and Jackie Butler added 7 assists for Forest Hills (19-4, 13-2 Queens II-B).
