Sunday, November 26, 2017 - by special to The Chattanoogan.com

Bradley Central defeated Daniel Boone, 56-43, Saturday night to capture the championship in the Thanksgiving tournament sponsored by Holiday Inn Express at Jim Smiddy Arena.

The Bearettes (4-0) routed Baylor, 55-16, in the opening game of the second day schedule to reach the title game.

In the title showdown, Bradley got 20 points by Kimia Carter and Rhyne Howard’s 11 points and 11 rebounds to hand Daniel Boone its first loss in the young season.

Carter and Howard were a combined 10 for 22 shooting from the field. Carter went 10 for 13 from the free-throw line.

Bayleigh Carmichel paced Daniel Boone with 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting and also had six rebounds, as did teammate Sydney Pearce. Macie Culbertson had 11 points and five rebounds. Emily Sizemore added eight points, going 8 for 8 from the free-throw line.

The Bearettes and Lady Trailblazers battled throughout the game on the backboards and Bradley had a slight 24-20 edge. Bradley outscored the opponent 21-4 on turnovers and 15-4 on second-chance opportunities. Bradley’s bench outscored Daniel Boone 15-3.

Bradley Central built a 30-15 halftime lead, but lost 10 points off that margin in the third quarter. Coach Jason Reuter’s squad forced 24 turnovers, 23 coming from the Lady Trailblazers’ starters, including eight by Culbertson. The Bearettes made 12 turnovers, four by Carter.

In the Day 2 opener, the Bearettes blitzed Baylor, 21-0, to open the game, pushed the streak to 25-0 and gained control of the contest. Bradley led 30-8 at halftime.

Baylor turned the ball over 32 times – JuToreyia Willis and Cheyenne Lindsey each made six ball-handling errors and the Bearettes scored 33 points off those mistakes.

Bradley’s pressure defense held the Lady Red Raiders to 16.7 percent shooting from the floor, hitting just 5 of 30 shots. Willis was 0 for 12 from the field.

The Lady Red Raiders (3-3) bounced back later in the day, knocked off McMinn Central (2-4) by a 49-32 score and claimed third-place in the tournament.

Baylor got balanced scoring as Lindsey led the way with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Raegyn Conley notched 13 points and Willis added 12 points and seven boards. The Lady Red Raiders won by 17 points, despite turning the ball over 20 times, including seven by Willis and four by Britt Barton.

Jordan Wright was the only Chargerette in double figures with 13 points, going 8 for 10 at the charity stripe.

Baylor outscored McMinn Central, 32-4, in the paint and had a combined 34-12 in points off turnovers, second-chance points and 10 from fastbreaks.
