Lady Tigers rout Jellico on the road

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

JELLICO, TENN. – The Barbourville Lady Tigers handled Jellico, Tenn. with ease during the summer and that might have led to them overlooking the Lady Blue Devils heading into Monday’s contest, according to coach Andrea Hillard.

Jellico, Tenn. led 20-18 at the end of the first quarter, but that’s when Barbourville woke up and used a 28-10 run during the third quarter to cruise to an 82-57 season-opening win.

“Jellico is a good team,” Hillard said. “The final score might not show it, but they were playing right with us until we made the run in the third quarter. We started out a little rough and we just didn’t have everything together.

“We played them during the summer and beat them handily and I believe our girls overlooked them,” she added. “But we started clicking in the second quarter and carried it over.”

Kara Erslan played a big role in Barbourville taking a 41-34 lead into the locker room at halftime by knocking down five three-pointers while scoring 21 points. She finished with a game-high 29-point effort.

Six different Lady Tigers scored during the third quarter allowing them to extend their lead to 69-44 with eight minutes remaining in regulation.

Barbourville (1-0) had eight different players score in the game while four of them scored in double figures. Brianna Tate scored 16 points in the win while Kelsey Erslan (14 points) and K.K. Liford (10) followed.
