Bradley Central's Long-Range Assault Crushes Lady Owls, 59-29

Bearettes Make More 3-Pointers (11) Than Ooltewah's Field Goals (9)

Wednesday, December 12, 2018 - by special to The Chattanoogan.com

It was bombs away for Bradley Central as the Bearettes knocked down 11 of 40 3-point shots Tuesday night in a 59-29 high school basketball victory over Ooltewah in Edward M. Foster Gym.

The Bearettes played their second straight game without Anna Walker, who suffered a foot injury in Friday’s East-West Classic game. The Bearettes take on East Hamilton on Friday on the Lady Hurricanes’ home floor.

The next day will fly to Phoenix, Arizona, to take part in the Nike Tournament of Champions. Bradley plays Beaverton, Oregon, on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The Bearettes’ Hannah Lombard attacked strictly behind the 3-point line and canned 5-of-10 attempts for 15 points. Anna Roberts went 3 for 6 behind the line and led Bradley (10-1, 2-0) with 17 points on 7 of 12 shooting from the field. Bradley’s made 3-pointers were two more than field goals for the Lady Owls (2-6, 0-3).

Lombard also had four assists and four steals. Cambree Mayo had six steals and Jamaryn Blair added four. Alexis Barnes blocked four shots

Kaleigh Hughes finished with 10 points and seven rebounds. Ironically, the Lady Owls out-rebounded Bradley, 39-38. Brooklyn Wardlaw grabbed eight boards and Madalyn Mills added seven, along with a team-high 13 points.

Ooltewah committed 30 turnovers to Bradley’s nine and the Bearettes outscored the Lady Owls 27-2 off those miscues.

Bradley’s biggest lead was 32 points late in the fourth quarter and the Bearettes had 16-point run early in the second period. The visitors had the lead for 31 minutes and 41 seconds.
