It was a good night to be on Ann Street. The JV moved to 14 and 0 with a convincing win over the JV Vols. The Lady Generals made quick work of the Lady Vols avenging an earlier loss with a 61 – 25 win to wrap up and host the area championship. The Generals followed with a hard fought 68 – 60 victory over Jeff Davis to also wrap up an undefeated area season and host the area tournament.
The Lady Generals moved to a 22 – 4 first quarter lead and cruised on from there. Zippy Broughton led the scorers with 22, followed by Zinaya Crawford with eleven and Gail Whiting with ten. The Lady Generals face the Lady Wolverines of Carver tonight at Carver.
The Generals on the other hand kept pulling out to a six and eight point lead only to see the Vols continue to close the gap to two. Following a perfect Rivers pass to Ruggs III for a huge slam the Vols seemed to be finished. Ruggs III led the Generals in scoring with 16 points, Jon’Datric Butler added 13 and Demond Robinson pulled down 14 rebounds. The Generals also travel to Carver for a showdown between the two state powers.
IT IS ALWAYS A GREAT DAY TO BE A GENERAL!
