Humes, Hall double hit for Lady Bulldogs
Jan 17, 2007 12:00 am
MCKENZIE — C'Kala Humes and Tomika Hall had double-doubles for Cumberland on Monday night as the Lady Bulldogs won a foul-filled TranSouth Conference fray at Bethel 86-76.
Humes totaled 23 points and 10 rebounds while Hall notched 19 points and 16 caroms in just 24 minutes as she was limited by second-half foul trouble. Renae Williams supplied 17 points and seven boards.
"Anytime we get two people with double-doubles, we're in good shape," Cumberland coach Clint Mason said. "I was happy with the way our team crashed the offensive boards. It's a tough place to play. I was happy with our transition defense."
In all, 65 fouls were called as No. 8 Cumberland connected on 26 of 45 free throws to improve to 13-3 for the season and 3-2 in the TSC.
"They play an aggressive style of man-to-man, fullcourt defense," Mason said of the Lady Wildcats. "We did a good job of getting in transition. We were able to set up our press and get some turnovers and get some baskets."
Lebanon's Kristin Kirkland scored seven points, including a clutch three-pointer from the wing with about three minutes to play after the Lady Wildcats climbed within 76-73. Kiana Robinson and Ashley Cross each supplied six points, Kari Maddox finished with five and Julianna Fernandes three.
Whitney Baird totaled a game-high 25 points in just 14 foul-plagued minutes for the Lady Wildcats, who fell to 12-4, 2-3. Amanda Cunningham tossed in 24 and Nina Djokovic 14.
Cumberland led 38-28 at halftime. Bethel briefly tied the game with around six minutes to play.
The Lady Bulldogs will return to the TranSouth Conference road Thursday when they travel to Mayfield (Ky.) High School to take on new member Mid-Continent at 6 p.m.
