(Continued)

CHANNELVIEW —

Tims and post teammate Crystal Griggs each had 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Lady Bulldogs. Miah Wright finished with nine points and five boards while Jada McKnight added eight rebounds.

Sweeny outrebounded BC 45-36 but the Lady Cardinals got even on the defensive end, forcing a whopping 30 turnovers while committing just 18 of their own.

Henry finished with a team-high 18 points for the Lady Cardinals and had five rebounds. Kelsey Fults had five points and yanked down a game-high 12 rebounds. Kasey Frederick had five points and seven boards while Bailee Bacon had five points and an outstanding defensive game.

“Alexus had a great game considering she barely played half of it,” said Willis. “She was heading for a big night. I’m just super proud of all the kids. I thought Fults and Frederick really hit the boards for us in the second half and Bacon was outstanding on defense throughout.”

Down 14-2, BC whittled away at the lead as Henry scored eight of 10 points, leading BC on a 10-2 run to get to within 16-12 at the end of the first.

Henry tallied eight more points in the second period but was whistled for her fourth foul with 0:38 left in the half.

BC finished 17-of-27 from the free-throw line while Sweeny converted 12-of-23.

BC’s 21-3A district rival Hamshire-Fannett will join the Lady Cardinals at regionals after defeating Hardin-Jefferson Tuesday. H-F will take on state-ranked No. 1 Waco LaVega in the other semifinal at SHSU at 8:15 p.m.
