Bradley Blows Out Lady Trojans, 96-24, For 36th Straight Win In Series

Saturday, February 3, 2018 - by special to The Chattanoogan.com

The offensive onslaught wasn’t unusual, but how Bradley Central’s second-ranked and undefeated Bearettes girl-handled Soddy-Daisy, 96-24, on Friday was certainly out of the routine over the past four games.

Jamaryn Blair sparked the Bearettes (24-0, 11-0) with 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including 4 for 8 from 3-point distance. Rhyne Howard and Kaleigh Hughes each scored 14 points and Anna Roberts added 13 points.

Still, Howard’s statistical line was pretty nice.

She hit 6-of-9 shots, got nine steals, five assists and five rebounds in 19 minutes. With the 14 points, Howard supplanted Brooke Copeland (Jackson) as the program’s No. 8 all-time scorer with 2,241 points. Copeland had 2,232 during her illustrious career. Howard is 10 points behind No. 7 Paige Redman.

Coach Jason Reuter played every player on his roster and all 12 scored as the Bearettes won their 36th straight against the Lady Trojans (7-16, 1-10) and lead the all-time series 124-14.

Bradley, which scored the game’s first 19 points and 35 of 36, shot 53.6 percent (27 of 69) from the floor, out-rebounded Soddy-Daisy 41-19 – Hannah Lombard had six for the Bearettes. The Lady Trojans hit 25.9 percent (7 of 27) and committed 35 turnovers, with Bradley scoring 57 points off them.

Bradley’s bench outscored the Lady Trojans, 54-0.

Soddy-Daisy’s last win over Bradley came on Feb. 11, 2000, a 57-56 decision on the Lady Trojans’ home floor. The previous Soddy-Daisy win was a 39-28 victory in region semifinal contest in February of the 1959-60 season. Bradley won the next 56 in a row and had captured 91 of the last 92 meetings.

Roy Exum: It’s A Racist Thing

Being a child of the South, I’ve marveled at our funny sayings for all of my life. I’ve been at a football game and heard a disgruntled fan in the stands say of his team’s quarterback, “That boy couldn’t play dead in a cowboy movie.” I’ve been at the Sunday supper table and heard, “I’m of a mind each one of his sermons is better than the next.” And I’ve sat in a Saturday morning ...
