Lady Redhounds struggle against Morris, Bell County

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

After the Corbin Lady Redhounds opened the 2012 Cumberland Falls Invitational Tournament with a 75-55 loss to Bell County Thursday, Corbin coach Jennifer Parsons said she expected her team to learn from the experience.

That experience included a 27-point effort from Bell County sophomore Maci Morris and a 20-point deficit for the Lady Redhounds for most of the second half.

After the loss, Parsons was adamant about what her team needed to do to get better if they expect to compete with the likes of the Lady Bobcats.

“It was a good game for us to play, like I said earlier in the week, because you want to play the good teams early,” Parsons said. “I felt in no way, shape or form like that was our best performance as a team.

“Bell County came out and started hitting shots early and we just stopped and didn’t know how to handle that,” she added. “I felt like we just folded in that first half and it was like everything we had talked about over the past two months just went out the window.”

Morris established her dominance early on, scoring nine of the Lady Bobcats 23 first quarter point to help guide her team to a 23-12 lead after the first eight minutes.

Bell County used a 20-6 second-quarter run to extend the lead to 43-18 before eventually taking a 45-23 lead to the locker room at halftime.

The Lady Bobcats’ lead ballooned to as much as 25 points in the third quarter before Morris left the game with her fourth foul, giving Corbin a chance to try and cut into the lead, but Parsons’ squad was unable to capitalize on the opportunity. The Lady Redhounds did manage to trim the gap to 20 points with eight minutes to play in the contest.

Bell County continued to push the pace in the fourth quarter, leading again by as much as 25 points, en route to the 75-55 win.

Despite the big deficit in the second half, Parsons said she was much more pleased with her team’s effort in the late stages of the game.

“Bell County is a great team and we knew that coming in,” Parsons said. “We knew Morris was a great player and that we weren’t going to stop her, but we didn’t play her the way we had planned to.

“We did give a lot more effort in the second half and I thought we showed a lot more heart as well,” she added. “I can tell you this, we’ll learn a lot about our team tomorrow night with how we respond to this loss.”

Corbin was led by Miranda Wilson’s 20-point effort. The Lady Redhounds will be back in action tonight at 9 p.m. when they face Middlesboro.
