CU women fall at Bethel
McKENZIE -- Keshia Brown scored a career-high 20 points and Cumberland took the lead after erasing a nine-point second-half deficit, but the Lady Bulldogs were unable to hang on, falling 70-65 at 19th-ranked Bethel University Monday night in women's basketball action.
 
Cumberland (7-7, 1-4 TranSouth) lost for the third time in four games, all against ranked opponents, after dominating play in the lane where the Lady Bulldogs netted 48 of their points. Brown scored 18 of her 20 points in the second half, leading four double-figure scorers for CU.
 
Cumberland scored nine of the last 11 points of the first half and trailed just 31-30 at the break. The Bulldogs continued the run after intermission, taking a four-point lead early in the second period, but Bethel answered with a 19-6 run for a 52-43 advantage midway through the half.
 
CU fought back, mostly behind Brown, as the Lady Bulldogs applied pressure and converted turnovers into easy buckets. An old fashioned three-point play from the junior gave Cumberland a 60-58 lead with 2:28 to play.
 
But Teena Carter answered right back for the Wildcats (11-6, 2-2) with a basket for the fifth tie of the half. Bethel scored 12 of the final 17 points of the game, including six points from Kashundria Berry.
 
Nina Djokovic scored a game-high 26 points and added 13 rebounds to lead the Wildcats, while Carter added 13 and Tristian Johnson netted 10. Berry ended the game with just eight points, but four big free throws in the final minute.
 
Simone Ryan scored 11 points for the Lady Bulldogs, while Allysia Bailey collected 10 points and Stephanie Martin posted 10 points and a team-high nine rebounds.
 
Njokovic scored 16 of Bethel's points and had eight rebounds in the first half, as the Wildcats led by as many as eight points. But Ryan scored eight straight for the Lady Bulldogs to tie the contest at 15 and Bailey added nine in the period, with CU headed to the locker room trailing just 31-30.
 
The Bulldogs scored 24 of their points in the paint in the half, all 12 field goals, and were 0-for-4 from 3-point range. Ryan and Brittany Cash also combined for 14 points off the bench for CU.
 
Cumberland continues a three-game stretch against ranked foes Thursday, hosting top-ranked Union University at the Dallas Floyd Recreation Center.

Mt. Juliet sweeps LHS

By TOMMY BRYAN
LEBANON -- You just knew Teraes Clemmons was going to take the last shot in Mt. Juliet’s thrilling 46-45 win over Lebanon Friday, Jan. 15 at jam-packed Campbell Brandon Gym.

Held to two points in the first half, Clemmons scored a dozen after intermission, including the game-winner with :07 left in regulation -- a smooth 15-footer from the right wing with an LHS defender draped on him.

Blue Devil Phillip Vance managed to get off a shot from the deep corner just before the buzzer, but missed as the Bears escaped with the victory.

“Man, can you believe the atmosphere,” said MJ coach Troy Allen, “this is what it’s all about -- two teams playing with great heart and energy.”

Mt. Juliet improved to 14-3 overall and 5-1 in District 9AAA with the win. Lebanon slipped to 9-9 / 1-4 with the loss.

“I can’t fault my kids,” LHS coach Doug Keil said after the game, “they played so hard. We had a stretch there of about four minutes when we didn’t play very smart, but our effort was outstanding all night.”

Soph Caleb Chowbay paced Mt. Juliet with 15 points, including three 3-pointers. Clemmons finished with 14 and Vaughn Cornelia had nine from the paint.

Lebanon was led by 17 from senior Ryan Beadle, who knocked down two 3-pointers and calmly went 6-for-6 at the line in the late stages of regulation. Justin Bridges had seven, including a pair of deep 3-pointers while Vance had two 3-pointers for six. Justin Manning had six, Cameron High five and Case Sloan four for the tough-luck Blue Devils.

Mt. Juliet’s No. 3-ranked Lady Bears ran out to a 12-0 lead and never looked back in a 59-30 win over Lebanon in Friday’s opener. Mt. Juliet opened up a 38-8 lead at intermission and improved to 17-1 overall, 6-0 in District 9AAA. Lebanon fell to 12-5 / 3-2 in league play.

“We had a very good night shooting the ball,” MJ coach Chris Fryer said, “this bunch has good chemistry and tonight we really played well.”

Caya William had 14 and Britt Bell 12 for the winners. LHS was led by Britnie McDannald with seven and Victoria Dye with six.
