Allen County-Scottsville (30-4) vs. Covington Holy Cross (32-3) (Girls)

2015 Houchens Industries/KHSAA Girls’ Sweet Sixteen® Championship

EA Diddle Arena

Western Kentucky University

Bowling Green, KY

March 15, 2015

 

Allen County-Scottsville coach Brad Bonds started the following lineup: 5-11 Sr. Morgan Rich, 5-10 8th Grade Sarah Sutton, 6-1 Sr. Holly Robinson, 5-6 Jr. Jordan Brooks, and 5-8 Jr. Savannah Gregory.  Covington Holy Cross coach Kes Murphy countered with 5-10 Sr. Abby Hassert, 5-7 So. Aleah Tucker, 6-2 Sr. Ally Mayhaus, 5-7 Jr. Dajah McClendon, and 5-8 Sr. Deja Turner.

Abby Hassert scored a basket and free throw with 5.5 seconds remaining on the clock to give Covington Holy Cross a 35-32 victory over Allen County-Scottsville.  The score was tied 32-32 when Covington Holy Cross’ Dajah McClendon stole the ball and after a timeout Hassert found an opening down the lane for the winning score.  These were Hassert’s only points of the game.  Allen County-Scottsville had one more chance but a last second three point attempt missed the mark.  There were seven ties and six lead changes in the game.  Holy Cross also captured the All “A” Classic Championship earlier this year. 

The Lady Indians did not have an easy path as they defeated Bell County featuring Kentucky signee Maci Morris.  Next was a victory over tournament favorite Elizabethtown featuring two time Kentucky Gatorade Player of the year Erin Boley.  Their semifinal victory was over a very good Male team and captured the championship with a victory over Allen County-Scottsville led by Kentucky signee Morgan Rich.

Covington Holy Cross shot 48.4% from the field including two of four from the three point line.  The Lady Indians connected on three of five free throws, pulled down 14 rebounds, and scored 14 points off 12 Allen County-Scottsville turnovers.  Allen County-Scottsville shot 36.7% from the field including four of six from beyond the arc.  The Lady Patriots connected on six of 11 free throws, pulled down 23 rebounds, and scored three points off seven Covington Holy Cross turnovers.

Deja Turner led Covington Holy Cross with 13 points and five rebounds.  Ally Mayhaus added 10 points and two blocked shots.  Dajah McClendon recorded five points, four assists, and two steals.

Morgan Rich led Allen County-Scottsville with 20 points including three three point baskets.  Savannah Gregory added five points and seven rebounds.  Holly Robinson pulled down seven rebounds and blocked two shots.

DuPont Manual vs. Ballard (Boys)

7th Region Tournament Championship

Valley High School

Louisville, KY

March 12, 2015

 

Ballard came back from the dead once again to stage yet another improbable comeback to defeat Manual by a score of 67-60 in overtime.  Manual led 24-4 early in the second quarter and held a 48-38 lead with approximately seven minutes left in the game.  Ballard roared back to take a 55-53 lead with a minute and a half left in the game.  Jarrett Harness scored to tie the game at 55-55 but missed the ensuing free throw with 14 seconds remaining on the clock.  However Manual had another chance but missed the shot at the buzzer and the game went to overtime.  Manual took an early 57-55 lead but Ballard closed out the game with 12-3 run.  Ballard led 60-57 with 1:20 left on the clock when Harness was assessed a foul on a steal attempt and also picked up a technical for reportedly slamming the ball to the floor.  Jamil Wilson calmly connected on all four free throws putting the game out of reach.

6-1 Sr. Jalen Perry led Ballard with 25 points and eight rebounds.  6-2 Sr. Anthony Eaves added 14 points and six rebounds. 5-7 So. Jamil Wilson also reached double figures with 12 points and pulled down seven rebounds.

George Rogers Clark vs. Mason County (Girls)

10th Region Tournament Championship

George Rogers Clark High School

Winchester, KY

March 8, 2015

 

Mason County withstood a late George Rogers Clark rally to earn a 51-47 victory over the defending regional championship.  Mason County coach Piper Lindsey could only tell her young team (two 8th graders, eight sophs, and five freshmen) the joys of making it to the state tournament as she made the trip in 2004 but now they will be able to build their own memories.

This game was a roller coaster of emotions as Mason County raced out to a 14-8 lead after the first quarter of action.  Mason County hit some key three point baskets to hold a 24-19 lead at halftime.  George Rogers Clark fought back and actually led 32-31 after three quarters.  Mason County rallied to take the lead and led by an excellent effort by 5-8 So. Whitney O’Mara held on for the victory.  Free throw shooting proved to be an Achilles’ heel for GRC today as they only connected on seven of 15 from the charity stripe.

5-8 So. Whitney O’Mara led Mason County with 22 points.  5-9 So. Maddie Boone added 10 points.  5-3 So. Briana Littleton and 5-8 So. Briana McNutt chipped in with nine and six points respectively.  McNutt pulled down seven rebounds.

5-8 Sr. Paige Taylor and 5-10 Jr. Sydney Anderson led GRC with 12 points each.  6-3 So. Elizabeth Hardiman added 11 points and 6-1 Sr. Sandra Skinner chipped in with nine points.  Skinner pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds.
