Iles, Dick lead Lady Jets over Cleveland

CROSSVILLE — Makenzie Iles and Gina Dick tallied 22 and 18 points, respectively, to lead the CCHS Lady Jets to an 80-39 victory over the Cleveland Lady Raiders to remain unbeaten at 4-0 on the young season, before a large contingent of vocal, post-Halloween dressed students Tuesday night at home.

"We got comfortable in our zone and played our game," said Lady Jet Coach Radhika Miller. "We must continue to be aggressive, as well as pressure the basketball for 48 minutes."

Rounding out the scoring for the Lady Jets were Rebekah Teeple (9), Destiny Carlton (9), Alli Hyde (8), Victoria Lee (1), Skylar VanWinkle (2), Madison McLauglin (2), Kelsie Eldridge (2), Bailey Davis (2) and Lindsey Norrod (2). Klaire Varney and Sydney Clark also played.

Leading rebounders were Teeple (8), Dick (6), Lee (4), Iles (3), McLaughlin (3), Carlton (2), Hyder (2) and VanWinkle (2).

After CCHS jumped out to a 1-0 lead on one of two free throws by Lee, the Jet studium body responded with a "blizzard," none of which hit the playing floor or a technical foul would have occurred.

Dick converted a layup for a 3-0 lead, which seasawed back and forth all quarter, with the quarter ending in an 18-18 tie. There were seven lead changes and four ties, with Cleveland holding the largest lead at 11-7 midway through the quarter.

Iles scored six points for the Lady Jets, who were eight of 14 from the floor with two miscues, while the Lady Raiders were six of 13 with one turnover.

The Lady Jets took control of the game both offensively and defensively in the second quarter, as they were six of 13 from the field and 11 of 17 from the charity stripe to outscore Cleveland 26-5 for a 44-23 advantage at the break. Cleveland was one of four from the field with five turnovers.

Dick led CCHS with 10 points, including five of eight from the charity stripe.

Jenna Scoggins put the Lady Raiders on the board with a trey to open the second half, but a trey by Teeple started a 19-6 run for a 63-32 lead by quarter's end. Teeple had five points for the Lady Jets, who were eight of 11 from the field. Dick and Iiles each had four  points apiece.

The Lady Jets outscored Cleveland 17-7 in the final quarter to post the victory.

CCHS was 29 of 49 from the field and 15 of 21 from the charity stripe with 10 turnovers, while Cleveland was 11 of 33 and 14 of 27 from the charity stripe with 13 turnovers.

The Lady Jets (4-0) will host Clarkrange (8-0) tonight at 6, and will visit East Hamilton for a 5 p.m. CST contest. The Lady Buffaloes defeated Wartburg 78-38.

Schedule change: The Lady Jets will be going to Lawrence County High School in Lawrenceburg Dec. 20-21 instead of playing in the Bear Classic at Antioch.
