Carlton scores 36 points in Lady Jet win over Cleveland

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS basketball teams ventured to Lee University in Cleveland Saturday night to face Region 3AAA foe Cleveland and came home with a split in the double-header, as the Lady Jets won 81-60 and the Jets lost 52-36.

Lady Jets 81, Cleveland 60: "I am proud of them for holding their composure. We talked to them at halftime about adversity and making adjustments  to playing the AAU style," said Coach Radhika Miller, whose team outscored the Lady Raiders 57-26 in the second half to rally from a 15-point third-quarter deficit for the victory.

The Lady Jets led 7-6 on a trey Kelsie Eldridge, but a trey by Jenna Scoggins a 13-7 lead, but Rebekah Teeple  converted a layup to trigger a 8-0 run for a 15-13 avantage. 

Cleveland finished the quarter with a 6-0 run for a 19-15 advantage. CHS was nine of 15 from the field with five turnovers, while CCHS was five of 18 with four tunovers. Destiny Carlton had nine of her season-high 36 points in the first quarter.

Jamoyah Person score six points in a 10-0 run to give CHS a 29-15 lead, but Eldridge converted a three point play with 4:18 left to stop the bleeding to finish the quarter with a 9-5 run to slice the lead to 34-24 at the break.

The Lady Jets were three of 11 from the field with seven turnovers. Carlton  had four points for the Lady Jets.

Cleveland opened the third quarter with a 5-0 run for a 39-24, but Carlton converted the first of two free throws with 6:12 left in the quarter to trigger a 13-2 run to slice the deficit to 41-37, but a three-pointer by Graciya Walkup gave CHS a 44-37 lead. 

Again, Carlton converted one of two free throws with 3:58 left in the third quarter to start a 17-2 run for a 54-48 lead by quarter's end. The Lady Jet freshman had 15 points in the third quarter for the Lady Jets, who were 11 of 14 from the field and six of nine from the charity, including two technical foul tosses by Makenize Iles, as the Lady Jets outscored CCHS 30-14.

Iles scored 11 fourth-quarter points, including six of eight free throws, to help the Lady Jets outscore the Lady Raiders 27-12 for the victory. Carlton added six points for the Lady Jets who were five of 12 from the field with four turnovers, while holding the Lady Raiders to three of five with 10 turnovers.

Statistical leaders for the Lady Jets were Iles (18 points, two rebounds, two assists, three steals), Gina Dick (eight points, two rebounds, five assists, three steals), Alli Hyder (one rebound, two assists, two steals), Carlton (36 points, eight rebounds, six steals), Victoria Lee (two points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal), Rebekah Teeple (12 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals), Eldridge (seven points) and Courtney Smith (two rebounds).

Cleveland 52, CCHS 36: Cleveland outscored CCHS 15-0 in the first quarter, as the Jets were zero for 11 from the field with four turnovers, while Cleveland was six of 15 with three turnovers. 

Mason Brown's layup for a 17-0, but Logan Parsons converted two free throws with 5:45 left in the second quarter to stop a 10-15 scoreless streak.

A three-point play with 55:26 gave the hosts a 20-2 lead, but Parsons converted the Jets' first field goal of the game with 5:36 left in the half to start a 13-6 run to slice the deficit to 26-15 at the half.

CCHS was four of 21 from the field with nine turnovers, while Cleveland was 10 of 27 from the field with seven turnovers. 

The Jets converted Raider miscues and missed shots into a 9-0 third-quarter run to slice the lead to 26-24 with 3:44 left in the frame. Brown burried a trey with 2:04 left to let CHS finish the quarter with a 7-0 run to rebuild the lead to 33-24.

Parsons buried a trey to open the fourth quarter for the Jets, but a trey by Contrel Ware helped the Raiders finish the game with a 19-6 run for the 52-36 victory. CHS was 10 of 13 from the free throw line in the final quarter, while CCHS was just two of three from the charity stripe.

Statistical leaders for the Jets were Diego Poore (two points, six rebounds, one assist), Alex Dixon (two rebounds, one assist), Drew Vaden (two rebounds), Austin Brown (one point), Cade Smith (eight points, two ebounds, one assist), Blake Mclaughlin (four points, three rebounds), Parsons (16 points, three rebounds) and Ty Tabor (five points, two rebounds, two steals).
