CBHI: Seahawks encounter first loss of season in semis

mbghoops-21Monacan (7-0; Chesterfield County, VA) advanced to the championship game of the 2016 CBHI with an impressive 59-46 victory over hometown Myrtle Beach (8-1, Myrtle Beach, SC).

Monacan and Myrtle Beach battled during the opening 16-minute half to six lead changes and four tied scores.  Ivy Collins gave Myrtle Beach what would prove to be its final lead of the night at 28-26 on a free throw with 1:24 to play before the half.  Jasmine Norman connected on a 3-pointer and Haley Eiser scored on a driving layup to give Monacan a 31-28 lead at halftime.

In the second half, the Chiefs continued the run by scoring the first four points to stretch their advantage to 35-28 on a jumper by Megan Walker with 14:28 to play.  Monacan slowly pulled away from the Seahawks, building as much as a 13-point advantage in the closing minutes.

Monacan was led by University of Richmond signee Alex Parson’s 25 points.  The nation’s #1 player and University of Connecticut signee Megan Walker added 17 points and eight rebounds for the Chiefs.

The duo of Nia Sumpter and Kiana Adderton, who have both signed with Wright State University, led Myrtle Beach with 18 and 13 points, respectively.

Winder-Barrow (GA)48 South Shore (FL) 46

Winder-Barrow (8-3; Winder, GA) led all but 12 seconds of the game but had to hold off and survive a comeback attempt by South Shore (5-2; Brooklyn, NY) for a 48-46 victory to advance to the championship game of the 2016 CBHI.

Winder-Barrow built a 20-8 advantage midway through the first half and looked like it would walk into the finals.  Latrice Perkins connected on a driving layup with 7:47 on the clock in the opening half to give the Bulldogs the 12-point lead.  South Shore slowly chipped away at the lead and closed the gap to just two points at 24-22 by halftime.

In the second 16-minute half, it again appeared that Winder Barrow would pull away as it built another double digit cushion.  The Bulldogs tallied the first eight points of the second half to take a 32-22 lead when Olivia Nelson-Ododa capped the run with an old-fashioned three-point play with 12:48 on the clock.  Again though it was South Shore charging back, using a pressure defense that forced 17 turnovers by the Bulldogs.

South Shore closed the gap to one point with 4:12 remaining on a layup by Selena Philoxy.  Chellia Watson then hit 3-of-4 from the free throw line to stretch the lead to 45-42 for Winder-Barrow before another layup by Philoxy cut the advantage back to two at 46-44 with 2:31 remaining.  Nelson-Ododa pushed the Winder-Barrow lead back to four points with 2:19 to play on a layup.  The teams then traded missed shots and turnovers to set up a last second opportunity for South Shore to pull off the comeback victory.  South Shore’s Tsahai Corbie’s 3-point attempt with just two seconds remaining missed its mark to seal the win for Winder-Barrow.

Nelson-Ododa led all scorers with 24 points to pace Winder-Barrow.  South Shore was led with 13 points each by Earlette Scott and Philoxy.

Harris County (GA) 64, Prairie View (CO) 58

Harris County (10-2; Hamilton, GA) led all but a few seconds of the second half and held on for a 64-58 victory over Prairie View (4-6; Henderson, CO) in a consolation bracket game that completes the tourney for both squads.

After leading by as many as 12 points in the opening half, Harris County took a 31-25 lead into the locker room at halftime.  Prairie View opened the second half with a 10-2 run that was capped by Viansa Romero’s 3-point basket with 13:49 to play to give the Lady Thunderhawks their only lead of the game at 35-33.  Harris County regained the lead less than a minute later and built leads as large as five points down the stretch.

Harris County’s Jessika Carter posted one of the best games in the 18 years of the CBHI with 25 points, 18 rebounds and 12 blocked shots.  Her 12 blocks ranks second all-time behind then Miami (FL) Senior and now Baylor center Beatrice Mompremier’s 13 blocked shots.  Taziaha Fanning added 15 points for Harris County.

Mack Maier paced Prairie View with 20 points and seven rebounds.

Dreher (SC) 53, Socastee 29

Dreher (7-2; Columbia, SC) led nearly wire to wire in a 53-29 victory over Socastee (5-6 (Myrtle Beach, SC) in the final game for both teams in the 2016 CBHI.  The duo of Haliyah Sumpter and Jaelynn Murray led Dreher with 25 and 21 points, respectively.  Murray also added 16 rebounds and three blocked shots.  Socastee was led by Mercer Roberts’ nine points and 12 rebounds while teammate Jadan Jones grabbed 16 boards.

Hillside (NC) 72, Orangeburg-Wilkinson (SC) 40

Hillside (10-1; Durham, NC) never trailed in advancing to the consolation bracket championship game with a 74-40 victory over Orangeburg-Wilkinson (6-4; Orangeburg, SC).

Elisa Grissett, a signee with the University of South Carolina, was a perfect 7-of-7 from the field to lead Hillside with 19 points.  Kelbi Lewis and Faith Blackstone added 10 points each for the Hornets.

Orangeburg-Wilkinson’s Brandi Rivers led the Bruins with 15 points and seven rebounds.

Franklin County (KY) 67, Carmel Christian (NC) 36

Franklin County (9-2; Frankfort, KY) led all but the opening 1:05 of the game and cruised into the Consolation Bracket Championship game with a 67-36 victory over Carmel Christian (7-5; Mathews, NC).

Carmel Christian’s Carrington Barnett scored the first basket of the game but the lead would be short-lived as Princess Stewart scored on a short jumper with 14:55 to play to give Franklin County a 4-2 lead, one that they would not relinquish.  Franklin County went on to a 24-1 run that opened a 26-3 advantage with 6:34 remaining in the opening half.  The Eagles went on to lead by as many as 33 points.

Stewart led Franklin County with 20 points on 10-of-14 shooting from the field.  Carmel Christian’s Barnett posted a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Norcross (GA) 77, Lake Highland (FL) 59

Norcross (12-1; Norcross, GA) used an early first half run to cruise into the fifth place game with a 77-59 victory over Lake Highland Prep (7-3; Orlando, FL).

Trailing 11-10 with 10:27 remaining in the opening half, Norcross scored eight unanswered points and went on to a 40-28 halftime advantage.  Lake Highland opened the second half with a run of its own, outscoring the Lady Blues 7-0 in the first two minutes to close the gap to 40-35 with 4:36 remaining.  Norcross responded with 11 unanswered points that put the game out of reach.

Norcross was led by Tehya Lyons’ 21 points while Jiselle Havas paced Lake Highland Prep with 17 points.

Wesleyan (GA) 65, Ferguson Senior (FL) 47

Wesleyan (10-1; Norcross, GA) defeated Ferguson Senior (10-4; Miami, FL) to set up a 5th place game on Thursday with a school that it shares a home town with.  Just under 310 miles from home in Norcross, GA, Wesleyan and Norcross have traveled to Myrtle Beach to do something that the schools that are located directly across from each other do not do at home…play hoops on the same court.

Wesleyan earned its way into the 5th place game by building a 37-23 cushion before halftime and coasting to the win.  University of Connecticut signee Mikayla Coombs led Wesleyan with 25 points and 13 rebounds.  Jameson Kavel connected on seven 3-point field goals, one shy of Ivory Latta’s tournament record of eight treys, for 21 points.

Ferguson Senior was led by junior Natalia Pineda’s 19 points.
