The combination of Summerville High School turnovers and McQueen of Reno's hot-shooting hand sent the Bears to a 61-52 loss in the first round of the 29th annual Sonora Kiwanis Girls' Basketball Tournament at Sonora's Bud Castle Gym on Thursday night.

Summerville committed nine turnovers and scored just seven points (four by Melissa Wise, who finished with eight points and four rebounds) in the final period while McQueen's Amber Delaney scored five of her game-high 20 points to lead the Lancers to the nine-point win.
