The Black Hawks picked up a 66-49 win Thursday to make it 16 wins in a row.

FARMINGTON HILLS ó Riding one continuous winning streak since early December, Bloomfield Hills has had many occasions to celebrate this season.

It added an outright championship in the Oakland Activities Associationís White Division to the ledger Thursday night, ensuring there would be no shared title by recording a 66-49 road win over Farmington Hills Harrison.

The team celebrated a share of first place last Friday, cutting down the nets at its home gym in celebration after a win over West Bloomfield. But the Black Hawks needed one additional win to deny second-place Royal Oak from getting to share the peak position.

ďItís a good feeling. For our girls, they took care of business,Ē Bloomfield Hills coach Jeff Rubin said. ďProbably the hardest thing in girls basketball is consistency and this year weíve been really consistent. Tonight wasnít our best night, but we still found a way to win.

ďFor them, Iím really happy. We have a senior group that has worked tremendously hard. Despite injuries, theyíve battled through.Ē

The Black Hawks (17-1, 9-0 OAA White) extended their win streak to 16 games, overcoming a slow start and uncharacteristic first quarter that put them in a nine-point hole.

The recovery was swift, however, as Bloomfield Hills scored the first 13 points of the second quarter to take a lead it would never give back. Senior Amanda Sape scored the first seven points of the quarter to ignite the rally and finished with a game-high 24 points.

The Black Hawksí five-point halftime lead quickly ballooned to double digits in the second half, though Harrison (4-11, 2-6) did not back down easily.

ďWeíve worked so hard to build this chemistry and the love that we have as a team,Ē Bloomfield Hills senior co-captain Myah Jones said. ďIt feels amazing. We are so motivated this year. Our seniors, weíve all been on varsity for a few years now and we feel like we have the opportunity to go far. We just want to keep working hard and go as far as we can.Ē

Junior Becca Hancock added 15 points, sophomore Maryam Hashim recorded 12, while junior Imanni Wright and senior Desiree Duncan each scored six points for Bloomfield Hills.

Harrison was led offensively by Olivia Perkins with 15 points and seniors Teddi Pickens and Ayoola Sobowale, who totaled 13 and eight points, respectively.

After being the division runner-up to North Farmington a year ago, the Black Hawks will will seek a perfect 10-0 record in the OAA White on Tuesday at Oxford.

ďOver the last seven years, weíve averaged 15 wins and havenít had a losing season,Ē Rubin said, including his time at Bloomfield Hills Andover prior to the districtís high school merger. ďWeíve had sustainable success. But thereís no secret formula or anything weíre doing differently this year from last year. As a program, weíre pretty deep right now.Ē
