Shooting Woes

Barbourville thumped by Lady Tigers, 73-29

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CLAY COUNTY — The Barbourville Lady Tigers suffered their worst loss of the season Monday, dropping a 73-39 decision to Clay County.

Lady Tigers’ head coach Andrea Hillard said her team’s shooting woes were to blame in the loss and she was right.

As a team, Barbourville connected on just 10-of-32 shot attempts from the field and were 2-of-11 from three-point range. If that wasn’t enough, the Lady Tigers made just 13-of-21 free throws.

“Clay County is a very good offensive and defensive team and they of course, cause us some matchup problems,” Hillard said. “We shot the ball poorly and just laid down in the second half.

“The effort and fight I normally see just wasn’t there tonight,” she added. “We are in a shooting slump it seems and hopefully soon we will break that trend.”

Clay County jumped ahead 19-8 in the first quarter and never looked back.

The Lady Tigers extended the lead to 37-16 by the time halftime rolled around.

Barbourville was able to break double digits in quarter scoring in the third, but still were outscored 22-13 in the period to widen the gap to 59-29 with eight minutes to play in the game.

A 14-10 fourth quarter effort from Clay County closed the game out as Barbourville falls to 15-8 on the season.

The Lady Tigers will be back in action Thursday when they host Jellico, Tenn., Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
