Rhyne Howard and Anna Walker combined for 31 points Saturday in Bradley Central’s lopsided 76-25 high school basketball victory over West Halls High at Jim Smiddy Arena.

Howard finished with 19 points in 19 minutes and connected on 7 of 14 shots. Walker scored 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds. Cambree Mayo had 11 points (4 of 7), four rebounds and four assists.

The Bearettes outrebounded West Halls 37-29 and forced 35 turnovers that Bradley turned into 45 points. Bradley had a 36-4 edge in the paint, 23-4 second-chance points, 12-0 on fastbreaks and 32-8 off the bench.
