Northpoint breaks Harding jinx

From Commercial Appeal

In terms of style points, it wasn't much of a success. But in terms of it's-about-time points, it was very impressive.

Jade Wells scored 14 points as Northpoint, ranked fourth in The Commercial Appeal's Dandy Dozen, battled past eighth-ranked Harding, 44-31. It's the Trojans' first victory in nine years on the Lions' home floor.

"They do a good job of defending their home court; give them an A-plus for that," said Northpoint coach Barry Gray. "They have a lot of pride here. We weren't making shots, but it says a lot that we were able to grind it out."

Neither team had its best shooting night of the year. But with Wells and Ashtyn Baker coming up with big plays down the stretch, the Trojans (15-2) put control of the regular-season region championship in their own hands. With Northpoint hosting the regional tournament as well, a return to defend their Division 2-A championship looks like a good bet.

"I think we're a little ahead of where we were (this time) last year," said Gray. "We need to develop some depth ... and stay healthy."

Harding (17-4) had cut a double-digit lead down to 37-31 late in the game but couldn't get it any closer. Baker (12 points) hit a pair of free throws then fed Wells for consecutive baskets as Northpoint closed the game on a 6-0 run.

Lindsey Whiteside had 11 for the Trojans.

Carley Rhoads led Harding with 10. South Alabama signee Antoinette Lewis was saddled with foul trouble and managed just four.
