H.S. BASKETBALL: Lady Eagles pick up pair of wins

BEREA — After falling Friday in the opening round of the Berea Holiday Classic, Madison Southern bounced back to pick up a pair of wins on Saturday.

The Lady Eagles defeated Pikeville, 74-65, then later in the day defeated West Jessamine, 59-40.

With the wins, Southern advances to the consolation bracket championship game and will face Powell County at 3:30 p.m. at Madison Southern High School.

“We started out slow (against West Jessamine) in the first few minutes, but we found our stride,” Southern coach Summer Simmons said. “We looked better inside tonight, even though we usually take lots of outside shots against the zone, so I thought that helped us get going on offense. The girls played hard despite being tired.”

In the win over Pikeville, Kristen Hayes had a team-best 22 points and Kelley Freeman added 19 points for Southern.

The Lady Eagles had a 21-9 lead after the first quarter and had a 46-28 advantage at halftime.

Southern was 16-of-25 from the line, while Pikeville was 19-of-23 from the line.

Briana Lanham had 18 points, Samantha Parms had six points, Marley Lawson had four points, Rachel Ramey had three points and Ashlynn Clark had two points.

Madison Southern took on West Jessamine for the second time in less than a week. The Lady Eagles picked up a 74-42 win on Monday and once again took care of the Lady Colts on Saturday.

Lanham had 21 points and Hayes added 13 points.

Southern trailed 5-1 early, but closed the first quarter on a 12-0 run. By halftime, the Lady Eagles were up 35-14.

Lanham had 16 points in the first half and finished the game with a team-best 12 rebounds.

Southern hit six three-pointers, was nine-of-11 from the free throw line and out-rebounded West Jessamine, 42-33.

Parms had seven points and seven rebounds, Freeman had six points, Lawson had five points and five rebounds, Kelle Scott had four points and Clark had two points.

In the loss to Somerset, the Lady Patriots trailed by just two points after one quarter (12-10) and four points at halftime (33-29). But, the Lady Jumpers out-scored Model 24-7 in the third quarter to take control of the game.
