Humes' points, MJCA defense not enough
Jan 10, 2007 12:00 am
GORDONSVILLE — Mt. Juliet Christian's one-girl offense wasn't enough even for an inspired Lady Saint defensive effort Monday as Gordonsville prevailed 42-26 in District 8-A action.
Christine Humes tossed in 21 of the Lady Saints' 26 points. Mt. Juliet Christian controlled the glass 43-37 and forced 26 turnovers as the visitors slipped to 7-7 for the season and 2-3 in the district pending tonight's 6 p.m. trip to Merrol Hyde in Hendersonville.
"It was the best I've seen our girls play defense at the academy," Mt. Juliet Christian coach David Kitchen said. "Other than Christine, we just couldn't shoot. We caused a lot of turnovers and quite few steals. We're missing easy shots."
Courtney Maynard managed 11 points to lead the Tigerettes, who moved to 9-6 for the season.
Ashley Hudson finished with four points and eight rebounds for Mt. Juliet Christian while Kristen Tewmey added a free throw and eight rebounds. Anna Haley had 10 caroms.
