Lady Jets fall to Bradley in OT

Advance to sub-state against Blackmon Saturday

CROSSVILLE — The Bradley Central Bearettes outscored the CCHS Lady Jets 11-7 in overtime to claim the Region 3AAA championship Wednesday night at Cookeville High School.

The Lady Jets (28-5) will travel to Murfreesboro Saturday to face Blackmon in the substate round at 7 p.m., while Bradley Central will host Oakland Saturday at 7 p.m. Blackman defeated Oakland 41-33 for the Region 4AAA crown. The winners earn berths in next week's Class AAA state tournament at MTSU.

The first quarter saw 13 lead changes and four ties before the Bearettes took a 19-17 lead by quarter's end.

Emma Kate Brown scored seven points for the Bearettes, who were six of 13 from the field with four turnovers, while Bradley Central's two collegiate signees — Brooke Copeland (Florida) and Rebecca Reuter (MTSU) — were held to two and four points, respectively, by the Lady Jets.

Rebecca Teeple had five points for the Lady Jets, who were seven of 13 from the field. Courtney Smith had four points, while Makenzie Iles and Gina Dick each buried a trey. Victoria Lee had the other two points.

Bradley Central took a 23-17 lead early in the second stanza, but Dick scored five straight points to start a 9-2 run to take a 26-25 advantage with more than five minutes left in the half.

Two free throws by Chelsey Summers keyed a 10-3 run to give the Bearettes a 35-29 lead at halftime. The Bearettes were five of eight from the field, while CCHS was five of 11.

The key stat of the second quarter was free throws. CCHS was one of seven, while Bradley Central was six of nine. For the half, CCHS was one of seven, while BCHS was nine of 12 from the charity stripe. The missed free throws by the Lady Jets cost them at least a share of the lead at the break.

Bradley Central maintained the six-point lead (42-36) with 4:20 left in the third quarter, but the Lady Jets caught fire after a timeout and finished the quarter with a 15-4 run to take a 51-46 advantage by quarter's end.

Dick had 13 third-quarter points for the Lady Jets, who were seven of 21 from the field and four of four from the charity stripe, while holding the Bearettes to four of six from the floor and three of four from the charity stripe with four turnovers.

The rally fired up the Lady Jet faithful which in turn rattled the Bearettes.

Alli Hyder hit one of two free throws with 4:13 left in regulation for a 61-54 lead, at which time, Reuter fouled out of the contest.

A three-point play by Copeland with 3:57 helped the Bearettes tie the game at 63-63 with some three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Dick converted two free throws for a 65-63 lead with 2:21 left, but missed the front end of one-plus-one situation with 57.5 ticks left to seal the victory.

Copeland tied the game at 65-65 with 46.7 seconds left on two free throws; however, each team missed opportunities to win the game after that.

Bradley Central took a 68-65 lead in the overtime, but  Iles buried a trey to tie the game a 68-68 with 2:05 left. The teams exchanged points to keep the game tied at 72-72 with under a minute left. A lay-uup by Emma Kate Brown gave BCHS a 74-72 lead with 26.1 seconds left, but the Lady Jets turned the ball over to the Bearettes  in the final 16.2, which led to two more freebies by Emma Kate Brown to seal the victory at 76-72 with 11.3 seconds left.

CCHS was 26 of 58 from the field and 14 of 24 from the charity stripe with 11 turnovers, while BCHS was 23 of 48 from the field and 25 of 30 from the charity stripe. The difference in the game was the free throw shooting.

Leading the Lady Jets were Iles (14 points, three rebounds, two assists), Dick (28 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals), Hyder (one point, one rebound, one assist), Destiny Carlton (12 points), Lee (four points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals), Rebekah Teeple (eight points, 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals) and Smith (six points, four rebounds). Klaire Varney (one rebound) and Kelsie Eldridge also played.

Dick, Carlton and Iles made the All-Tournament team.
