B’ville snaps Lynn Camp’s seven-game win streak

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

LYNN CAMP — The Barbourville Lady Cats snuck out of Monday’s Bowman Invitational showdown against Lynn Camp with a 32-29 win after both teams struggled from the floor much of the game.

The two squads combined to shoot 7-of-39 from the floor in the first half as the score at the break looked more like a score from a football game as the Lady Tigers led 12-9 at halftime.

Amber Elis led all scorers with 14 points, 13 of which came in the third quarter, while Kayla Smith’s eight points paced the Lady Cats.

Both coaches agreed the game was an ugly one, but Barbourville head coach Andrea Hillard said she’d take an ugly win.

“This was a battle and it was an ugly battle,” Hillard said. “But I think this was a statement for our kids tonight.

“There was a couple of times we went down, but they never once, like they did last year, gave up on each other,” she added. “I’m proud of our girls for toughing it out and getting the win.”

On the other side of things, Lynn Camp went from the two-minute mark of the first quarter until just under the six-minute mark of the third quarter without a field goal when Miranda Miller made good on an old-fashioned three-point play to trim the gap to 14-12.

Both teams picked up the pace offensively in the third quarter as Lynn Camp used a 15-9 effort in the period to grab a 24-21 lead as they headed into the fourth quarter.

That’s when Mills took over for Barbourville, scoring seven of the Lady Tigers’ 11 points in the fourth quarter, including 5-of-6 from the free throw line to help lead her team to the win.

“Both teams were struggling on offense, but neither team quit down the stretch,” Lynn Camp coach Richard Jones said. “We both played ugly at times, but it was a result of what both teams were doing defensively.

“Barbourville is a really good team and you have to give them credit for their effort,” he added. “We’ve got to get back at it and try to play better next time out.”
