Pace also pulled down 11 rebounds for the Burros (34-1).


Central (35-2) led 61-60 after Erica Burgess hit one of two free throws with 15 seconds left in the game.

Mitchell loses in Triple Overtime



Jasmine Gardner walked slowly toward the other end of the floor with the top of her jersey covering her face. The Mitchell High junior standout thought she had done all she could to help salvage what was supposed to have been the most memorable season in recent memory for the Lady Tigers.

Gardner saved her best basketball of the season for the final 16 minutes of Saturday night’s TSSAA Class AA sectional against Martin Westview. She converted turnaround jumpers in the lane. She stuck back missed shots. And when she wasn’t swatting shots, she was pulling down key rebounds on both ends of the floor.

Central Going to State



There are Senior Nights -- but few seniors gave themselves the kind of sendoff that Central's Jasmine Taylor, Erica Burgess and Jamila Ajanaku fashioned Saturday night.

The trio combined for 46 points, and save for a second-quarter hiccup Central dismantled Bartlett and two-time Best of the Preps Player of the Year Jasmine James to claim a 65-46 sectional title before a packed, hot, happy gym.

Overton Going to State

Overton embarassed by Central

Rather than standing, as is his usual custom during games, Overton girls basketball coach Jamie Rosser had taken a seat midway through the third period Wednesday with his Lady Wolverines trailing Central by double digits in the teams' Region 8-AAA girls title game at Wooddale.

Sitting near Rosser were his top three players -- juniors Jasmine Robinson, Orlandria Williams and Karisma Tyson. All had been benched for the majority of the second half in an embarrassing 59-31 region title-game loss to Central.

Central vs Overton Region 8 Championship Report - March 4, 2009

Check out the annoucement of the Region 8 All Tournament team on popoTV.



Central 59 Overton 31 WOW!

In my opinion, this was a highly anticipated match-up because of the battle these two had in the City Championship game. However as the final score displays, it was not much of a battle during the rematch.

Overton simply was not in sync at all--from tip off til the final horn.

However, Central was clicking on all cylinders. After being benched for the majority of the Central-White Station semi-final game, Jamila Ajanaku played like a woman possessed. Getting a double double with 11 points and 13 rebounds. Aaliyah Whiteside quietly did her damage leading the team in scoring with 15 points and was named MVP of the regional tournament. Central simply looked like a team on a mission to a State Championship.

Top Scorers
Central
Aaliyah Whiteside 15 points 3 rebounds 3 steals
Danielle Ballard 13 points 5 rebounds 2 steals
Jamila Ajanaku 11 points 13 rebounds
Jasmine Taylor 8 points 2 rebounds

Overton
Cornelia Fondren 10 points 6 rebounds 2 steals
