Friday, November 24, 2017 - by special to The Chattanoogan.com

Bradley Central’s Bearettes opened their Thanksgiving basketball tournament Friday morning with a 70-44 victory over Campbell High School out of Smyrna, Georgia.

Junior Kimia Carter led the Bearettes with 16 points. Despite going 4-for-16 on two-point shooting, the junior went 6 for 6 from the free-throw line and paced Bradley to its second straight win opening the season.

In 2016-17, the Bearettes won their first 32 games before losing to Stewarts Creek in the Class 3A Sectional, missing out on a second straight state tournament berth.

Sophomore Anna Walker added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Bearettes, who started the season with a 49-38 win over William Blount, which is also in this tournament.

Another sophomore, Alexis Barnes, scored 11 points. Junior Hannah Lombard scored five points, grabbed 10 rebounds and had five steals.

University of Kentucky signee Rhyne Howard, scored six points and was credited with four steals. Howard only played 10 minutes.

The Bearettes held Campbell to 29.8 percent shooting and controlled the backboards 52-35.

Jadyn Rice paced Campbell with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Jameah Alston scored 12 points. The Bearettes forced 34 turnovers with Rice saddled with nine. Bradley was also sloppy, turning the ball over 26 times. Lombard had five miscues.

The Bearettes will play Baylor at 10 a.m. Saturday for a spot in the championship game scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Other games will determine third-, fifth- and seventh-place finishers in the tournament.

The Lady Red Raiders (2-2) breezed past winless David Crockett (0-4) 58-38 behind the  combined 49 points and 26 rebounds from Raegan Conley, JuToreyia Willis and Cheyenna Lindsey in Friday’s second game.

Conley scored 19 points and grabbed six rebounds while Lindsey finished with a double-double of 12 points and 12 rebounds. Willis tossed in 18 points and pulle down eight rebounds and made 3 of 6 3-pointers.

Baylor, which enjoyed a 30-18 halftime score, had a 46-29 rebounding edge and shot 37.5 percent (24 for 64) from the field. David Crockett shot 34 percent (18 of 53) and hit just 2 of 17 from behind the act, a chilly 11.8 percent.

The tournament is sponsored by Holiday Inn Express.
