REDMOND — Even without Jacqua Williams, Rainier Beach turned the championship game of the Cascade Classic girls basketball tournament into a defensive clinic.



The Vikings limited Liberty to just one field goal to run away with a 54-23 victory last night at Eastlake High School.



Sophomore Donjanique Baker scored a game-high 17 points while pulling down nine rebounds to lead second-ranked Rainier Beach.



Beach was playing without leading scorer Williams. The senior guard sprained her ankle in the third quarter of Wednesday’s win.



Beach’s defense harassed Liberty of Renton into a 1-for-35 shooting night from the field, and also forced the Patriots into 29 turnovers. Beach had 12 steals, five by Kristen Jones.



Rebekah Bartholomew sank 11 of 14 foul shots to finish with 11 points and 11 rebounds.
