February 06, 2004

The Garrard County girls scored 17 points in the first period but were outscored 45-19 over the next two as Pulaski County took control on its way to a 74-62 win Thursday night at Lancaster.

The Lady Lions survived 10 turnovers in the first quarter to lead 17-16, but Garrard coach Jenny Teater said they couldn't keep up when Pulaski picked up the pace in the second period.

"They just went on a run," Teater said. "They shot the ball extremely well."

Pulaski (19-4) shot 47.6 percent from the field and got 21 more attempts than Garrard. The Lady Maroons took a 61-36 lead after the third quarter, when Tarah Combs scored 12 of her game-high 21 points.

Garrard (8-11) committed 19 turnovers in the second half but only five in the second.

"That helped us come back a little," Teater said.

Garrard shot 50 percent (21-for-42) from the field, including 6-for-10 from 3-point range. Pulaski was 30-for-63 overall and 7-for-17 from 3-point range.


Kia Howard led Garrard with 15 points and six rebounds. Abby Parsons added 14 points and five rebounds, and Ashley Meadows also had five boards.

Anderson County 51, Burgin 46 - At Burgin, Anderson (12-8) escaped with a win over Burgin (11-10) thanks to its edge at the free-throw line, where it outscored the Lady Bulldogs by nine points and 17 attempts.

The Lady Bearcats were 16-for-27 at the line, while Burgin was 7-for-10, and Burgin coach Keith Monson said that was the difference in the game.

"It was a well-called game; we just didn't take it to the basket and draw any fouls," Monson said.

Beyond that, Monson said his team played well.

"I was very, very pleased with our intensity," he said. "I thought we played a very nice ballgame. I hate to lose a game like that.

"I can't say a lot a whole lot of bad things except that we got beat."

Burgin had 16 turnovers, and eight of them came in the second quarter when they scored only six points as Anderson turned a 15-9 deficit into a 23-21 halftime lead.

Monson said reserve Amanda Carey saw considerable time at point guard after Bev Harris and Clara Sanders fell into foul trouble, and Carey committed only two turnovers.

Burgin shot 48.6 percent (18-for-37) from the field, including 3-for-8 from 3-point range, and had 19 rebounds.
