Central's Hall of Champions Day 1 Report

Overton beat Manasas 52-42

Melrose was just too much for Briarcrest. At the half the score was 32-18. During second half play, Melrose spreaded the floor and took their time. Briarcrest just could not match up to the athleticism and quickness. Final Score: 56-39

The game seemed evenly matched at the start but swayed towards Central during the second quarter. Bartlett only had 1 weapon, Jasmine James in the first quarter. Jasmine had the first 11 points of the game and Bartlett as a team finished the first quarter with 12.

Central took care of business on the offensive boards and went deep in the bench during the first half. There was a balanced attack with Jamila Ajanaku cleaning up the boards, Jasmine Taylor dropping 3s and Erica Burgess running the show at point.

As more players got involved, Bartlett cut the lead down to 2 but their head coach got a technical foul and Central went back up by 4.

Halftime Score: Jasmine James-22 Bartlett-28 Central-34

During the 3rd quarter, Bartlett cut the lead to 4 behind two quick layups and a steal by Jasmine James and to 3 points after a 3 pointer by Jemil Jefferson. Then Bartlett took the lead with 6 quick points from Jasmine James including an inbound trick throwing the ball off the back of the defender.

End of 3rd Quarter: Jasmine James-38 Bartlett-51 Central-46

The fourth quarter was full of turnovers, fouls and tiredness. Very sloppy. Only 3 points were scored during the first 3 minutes of the quarter. Central eventually cut the lead to 1 from a 3 pointer by Danielle Ballard and immediately took the lead with a 3 from Jasmine Taylor.

The game was tied 59-59 with 1 minute left in the game. Jamila Ajanaku scored 2 points and Erica Burgess stole the inbounds to seal the game for Central.

Final Score: Jasmine James-40pts Bartlett-59 Central-61

Millington and West Memphis (AR) was a great matchup of athleticism and skill at every position. Jasmine Newsome was the spark hitting 3s, distributing the ball, floating in the lane and stealing the ball. Millington won 53-37.
