Lady Raiders And Hamilton Heights Win Big, Bradley Bears Take A Tough Loss At The MurMaid Mattress Cleveland Classic - With Box Scores

Thursday, November 28, 2013 - by Tony Eubank

On the final day of the Murmaid Mattress Cleveland Classic, the Hamilton Heights Hawks routed the Walker Valley Mustangs 59-37. The Hawks quickly jumped out to a 14-4 lead spurred by the perimeter shooting of Stefan Roknic. Hamilton continued to steamroll Walker Valley, dominating the boards on both ends. 

The second half began with the Hawks up 30-17, and, while the Mustangs managed to get within 8 points, the Hawks turned up the tempo on defense in the final quarter and finished the game 27-point victory. Hamilton Height’s Aleksa Jugovic led all scorers with 16 and Austin Harwood led Walker Valley with 10.

The Cleveland Lady Raiders bullied the Hardin Valley Lady Hawks on their way to a 45-27 win. Cleveland played tough defense and hit the glass hard on both ends of the court. 

The Lady Raiders had a 20-6 lead at 4:05 in the second quarter and ended the half up 28-10. Cleveland opened the second half with a 7-3 run as they continued to clamp down on defense.  With the score at 45-25 with two minutes left in the fourth Cleveland sat its starters for the remainder of the game. 

Lady Raider coach Mindy Kiser said, “We hit the glass a lot better. We were more physical on  our box outs, but Hardin Valley is a great-coached team. Coach Galloway is one of my very good friends and I told them from the beginning the were going to have to be physical and they were going to have to go rebound because I know her teams will.”

Cleveland’s Mya Long led all scorers with 12, while teammate Jamiyah Person added 8 and 16 rebounds, and Taylor Bishop led Walker Valley with 8 points.  

The Bradley Central Bears fell to the Hardin Valley Hawks 64-59. Hardin Valley finished a hard quarter up 17-14, The Bears clawed their way back in the second, going on a 9-0 run to take the lead at 26-24 before the half. Hardin went on a 7-0 run early in the third quarter to take back the lead and held on in a nasty back and forth battle in the fourth to pull out the win.  

Bradley coach Kent Smith had this to say following the loss, “Protecting the ball, defending the post, rebounding, we don’t do a very good job of it.”
