Central lost to number ESPN Hoopgurlz HS Nation #1 ranked St. Mary's (Stockton, Calif.) by 3 points. Here's a short recap from Hoopgurlz.

No. 1 St. Mary's (Stockton, Calif.), had a much tougher time shaking No. 9 Memphis Central (Memphis, Tenn.) 76-73.

The Warriors jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead on St. Mary's before senior Alle Moreno scored 11 points in a minute and a half, giving the Rams a quick edge. But St. Mary's was never able to fully distance itself from the young, tenacious Memphis Central squad, which was led by 25 points from sophomore Nina Davis.

Senior Allie Gibson hit the eventual game-winning bucket with 58 seconds remaining and Afure Jemerigbe pulled down three of her team-high nine rebounds during the final minute keep an easy bucket out of the hands of Memphis Central.

Today the Tournament of Champions took the day off and will resume on Monday, December 21, 2009. Central will be playing in the 5th place bracket at 1200pm (Memphis Time) against Mt. Lebanon (PA). Mt. Lebanon is ranked 6th in the ESPN Hoopgurlz HS Nation Top 25.
