Classic in the Country Day One Recap

Central traveled to Ohio to participate in the 10th Annual Classic in the Country. The Lady Warriors were victorious in their first game against Princeton. Here is the recap from Mark Lewis of Blue Star Media.

While one of the day’s marquee match ups lost a little of its flair with Princeton junior guard Kelsey Mitchell on the sideline nursing a foot injury, Memphis Central still decided they were here to do business. Central jumped out to a 13 to 10 edge after one but Princeton stormed back with a 17 – 11 margin in the second to hold a three point advantage at the half. The Warriors took the lead and sealed the win with five point margins in both the third and fourth leading to a 63 – 56 victory for the visitors from Tennessee. Baylor signee Nina Davis connected on 13 of 21 shots and finished the game with 29 points and added 14 boards to mix for good measure. Junior forward Tia Wooten was also in double figures for Central adding 17 points and aiding the cause with 6 of 11 shooting. Mitchell’s sister and fellow junior Chelsea struggled to find the range for the Vikings finishing just 4 of 19 for the game including 0 for 8 on the long ball. Junior forward Carlie Pogue led Princeton with 13 points and 10 boards in the contest while freshman point guard Markayla Sherman added 11 and garnered some notice.
