The Lady Rebels defeated the Green Hornets of CA Johnson in overtime 31-25. The victory came less than a week after the two teams split a four-quarter scrimmage. The Lady Rebels used this earlier success to compete with great intensity and confidence the entire game. The 3rd quarter saw the Rebels erase a halftime deficit to build a 5 point lead entering the final period. Untimely Rebel turnovers and missed layups allowed the Hornets back in the game. With less than a minute remaining and a 1 point lead, the Hornets fouled the driving Cyntherria Sullivan. The freshman point guard tied the game sending it into overtime. In OT, the Lady Rebels dominated defensively holding the Hornets scoreless while making 4 out of 6 free throws, Senior Tierra Nick showed tremendous leadership down the stretch posting and kicking the ball out relieving the pressure on the guards and milking the clock. The team was led in scoring by Sullivan who had 13 points. Despite a poor shooting night, sophomores Kayla Adams had 7 points and Ashlee Chinn added 5. Many other players contributed in other non-scoring capacities. It was a great TEAM win!
Cyntherria Sullivan and Michaela Griffin were named to the All-Tournament team.
Th Lady Rebels will travel to Airport on Tuesday, December 2 to open the regular season. GO REBELS!!
