CLASS AAA


Lakewood 73


Midland valley 33


Two minutes into the Class AAA girls’ basketball first-round playoff game between Lakewood High School and Midland Valley, the winner had been determined. Lakewood scored the game’s first 13 points and the Mustangs never got the deficit under 11 points the rest of the way as the Lady Gators went on to a 73-33 victory.


The Lady Gators (16-7) came out using pressure to force turnovers that were turned into easy baskets. They had a 9-0 lead two minutes into the contest and pushed it to 13 before Midland Valley finally scored at the 3:42 mark of the first quarter. Lakewood pushed the lead to 24-7 at the end of the first quarter.


Lakewood had four players score in double figures, led by Kamryn Lemon with 18 points.


Christen Dunbar led the Mustangs (8-16) with eight points.


CLASS AA


Academic Magnet 32


Silver Bluff 22


Silver Bluff (11-9) saw its season come to an end with a 32-22 loss to Academic Magnet in the first round of the Class AA playoffs.


The Bulldogs got 10 points from Ashanti Green, but Kippen Wallace went down with an injury on the first play of the game.


“Hurt us on the inside rebounding and hurt scoring,” said head coach LaShanteau Green of the junior, who averaged 13 points a game this season.


Class A


Wagener-Salley 38


Lewisville 30


Despite offensive struggles, Wagener-Salley (16-8) advanced to the second round of the Class A playoffs with a 38-30 win over Lewisville.


Ta’Nauziah Corley led the way with 15 points, and My’Ondrea Landy had 10. Head coach Reginald Corley said that the War Eagles’ defense was the reason for the victory, though.


“These girls really wanted it tonight,” he said. “They didn’t want to go home tonight.”


Wagener-Salley will be back in action on Saturday, when it will either travel to play McCormick or host Brashier Middle College.
