Iles scores 24 points in Lady Jet victory over Monterey

CROSSVILLE — The  Cumberland County High School basketball teams split a pair of non-district games with Monterey at Burks Middle School Thursday night, with the Lady Jets posting an 88-33 victory over the Lady Wildcats, while the Jets lost 85-58.

Lady Jets 88, Monterey 33: The ninth-ranked Lady Jets, who were averaging 75.9  points per game, scored the highest point total of the season (88) en route to the victory, hitting 38 of 76 from the field, including 10 three-pointers, and two of nine from the free throw, while their defense held the Lady Wildcats to 12 of 34 from the floor and nine of 17 from the charity stripe with 26 turnovers.

For the first time this season, all of the Lady Jets contributed to the victory and all 12 scored at least two points. CCHS has scored 30 or more points a game in 12 of the 17 games. This is the seventh time they've scored 80 or more points in a game.

Leading the way was Makenzie Iles with 24 points, five points, one assist and five steals, followed by Gina Dick (six points, one rebound, three assists, four steals), Alli Hyder (six points, four assists), Destiny Carlton (eight points, one rebound, two assists, two steals), Victroia Lee (eight ponts, three rebounds, one assist, two steals), Madision McLaughlin (two points, five rebounds), Skylar VanWinkle (five points, two rebounds, one assist), Rebecca Teeple (six points, six rebounds, one assist, three steals), Klaire Varney (six points, one board, three assists, four steals), Kelsie Eldridge (five points, one assist, one steal), Bailey Davis (six points, two rebounds) and Courtney Smith (six points, nine rebounds, two assists).

Teeple opened the game with a three-pointer for an early lead. A jumper by Leara Henry made the score 3-2; however, it was all Lady Jets from then on.

A lay-up by Lee triggered a 11-4 run to swell the lead to 14-6 with 4:10 remaining in the quarter, and a trey by Iles keyed a 15-2 run to finish the quarter for a 29-8 advantage.

Iles had nine first quarter points for the Lady Jets, who were 12 of 22 from the field, while holding Monterey to four of six with 10 turnovers which led to several CCHS buckets.

The Lady Jets outscored Monterey 25-12 in the second quarter for a 54-20 lead at the break, behind Iles' seven points. Carlton added six markers.

CCHS opened the third quarter with a 18-4 run to take a 72-24 advantage with 3:18 remaining in the stanza; however, with all of the substitutions by both teams, Monterey outscored CCHS 3-1 to make the score 73-27 by quarter's end.

A 15-6 fourth quarter made the final score 88-33.

Monterey 85, CCHS 58: The Monterey Wildcats used a 48-14 run from the middle of  the second quarter to the close of the third quarter to rally from a six-point deficit for the 85-58 victory over the Jets at Burks Middle School.

There were four ties and four lead changes in the first quarter, before  a layup by Logan Parsons sparked a 10-5 run to give CCHS a 17-16 lead at the break. The Jets were six of 14 from the floor and three of six from the charity stripe, while the Wildcats were five of 11 and five of seven from the charity stripe.

CCHS opened the second quarter with a 7-2 spurt for a 24-18 lead with 6:27 left in the half; however, the Wildcats reeled off 11-unanswered points for a 29-24 advantage.

A three-point play by Tanner Christopher stopped the bleeding, temporarily, but the Wildcats finished the half with a 10-7 run for a 39-34 lead.

CCHS was seven of 17 from the field, while Monterey was 15 of 28 from the field in the first half and eight of 11 from the charity stripe. Jared Phiilips had 16 first-half points for the 'Cats.

The third quarter wasn't pretty, as the Wildcats used a 23-2 run for a 62-35 lead with 1:59 remaining. A trey by Drew Vaden with 1:46 left stopped in the bleeding; however, a 4-0 run swelled the lead to 66-38.

Monterey was 12 of 15 from the field on all lay-ups and three of four from the charity stripe, while CCHS was one of 10 with five turnovers and one rebound.

The Wildcats built the lead to 74-43 on a trey by Phillips, but the Jets finished the game with a 15-11 run for the final margin of 85-58.

This was one of the Jets' poorer shooting nights — 27 for 62 from the field, including six of 24 from long-range, with only 19 rebounds, including six in the second half.

Statistical  leaders were Jordan Graham (two points, one assist, one steal), Diego Poore (11 points, one steal), Alex Dixon (eight points, two rebounds, one assist, three steals), Drew Vaden (three points, one rebound), Tanner Christopher (three points, one rebound), Austin Brown (four points, one rebound), Tyler Daugherty (two rebounds, one steal), Cade Smith (eight points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal), Brandon Myers (one rebound), Logan Parsons (12 points, two rebound, one steal) and Ty Tabor (eight points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal), Nolan McLain and David Elliott also played.
