Lady Tigers cruise to title game

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Staff Writer

KNOX CENTRAL — It didn’t take long for Andrea Hillard’s Barbourville Lady Tigers to show who was better during their 51st District Tournament first round battle with Pineville.

The Lady Tigers scored 30 points during the game’s first eight minutes, and never looked back during their 91-62 rout of the Lady Mountain Lions.

The win keeps Barbourville’s chances alive of three-prating as district champions. The Lady Tigers will face-off for the second year in a row in the title game against Lynn Camp, who advanced by defeating Knox Central, 35-26.

Hillard’s squad knocked down an impressive 14 three-pointers during the win, as Kara Erslan and Amber Mills each led the way with 23 points apiece while Kelsey Erslan scored 19 points and Laken Woolum finished with 12 points.

Barbourville came out firing on all cylinders in the first quarter, knocking down six three-pointers and 11-of-22 shot attempts to take a commanding 30-13 lead.

Kara Erslan started the Lady Tigers’ hot shooting from the outside by connecting with a three-pointer minutes into the game while adding another seconds later. Woolum followed with two three-pointers of her own while Mills got into the act, knocking down two three-pointers during the period’s final minute.

The Lady Tigers continued their dominance in the second quarter by continuing to dominate from the outside and underneath.

By the time halftime rolled around, their lead had grown to 52-29 over the defending 13th Region All ‘A’ Classic champions.

Barbourville 91, Pineville 62

Pineville       13  16  14  19 – 62
