Bradley committed 22 turnovers, a lingering problem this season, and Jamaryn Blair had five and Walker four. The Bearettes hit 6 of 16 3-pointers with Roberts and Walker each hitting two. They were 11 of 12 (91.7 percent) from the free-throw line

McMinn County (5-4, 1-1) was led by Kaitlynn Hennessee’s 13 points and five rebounds. She also had five steals, two assists and three turnovers. The Lady Cherokees went 10 for 34 (29.4 percent) from the floor and hit just 1 of 11 (9.1 percent) from 3-point distance.
