Lady Rebs rebound after morning loss; Twister teams lose

Local prep basketball teams played their second Hall of Champions dates on Saturday and met with mixed results.
Obion Central split a pair of girls’ games and won in boys’ play, while South Fulton swept Milan.
Union City’s two teams both lost, the girls to a Memphis home school entry and the boys to Covington.
All three Obion County teams are back in action Tuesday, Central hosting South Fulton, and UC playing Westview at home.
The following is a recap of the weekend action.
GIRLS
Bolivar 56, OC 44
The 10 a.m. tip-off for the first of two Hall of Fame might have been a little too early for the Lady Rebels, who fell behind by double digits and spent the rest of the game trying to catch up.
OC was within four points in the fourth period, but missed free throws and 3-pointers combined with some late triples by Bolivar allowed the Lady Tigers to put the game away.
Brandi Goodman led all players with 23 points for OC, while Tennessee Tech signee Tionne Herron tossed in 15 for Bolivar, which knocked down seven treys for the game.
OC 52, Liberty 39
The second act was much better than the first for the Lady Rebels as Goodman and Paige Hicks scored 15 points each in the Lady Rebel win.
Central was up by 19 points at the half, 31-12, and continued to extend the margin late into the fourth quarter before Liberty closed the game with a 9-0 run.
SF 70, Milan 56
The Devilettes bounced back from a season-opening loss vs. Obion Central with a solid win over Milan.
Taleeah Cross poured in 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds for SF, which was comfortably up 38-23 at the half.
Laken Haley had 14 points and four seals, while Sydney Easterwood had nine points and Maddie Kate Coffey eight for SF.
MHEA 28, Union City 26
The Lady Tornadoes could score only one point in the fourth quarter and eight points total in the second half as the Memphis-based homeschool squad rallied in Saturday’s Hall of Champions Game at Covington.
Dominating the glass on the defensive side, UC jumped out to a 12-2 lead after one period but then scored just six points in the second quarter as the Lady Eagles closed the gap to 18-12 at intermission.
MHEA — Memphis-area Home Education Association — then went to work on offensive rebounding and doubled Union City in each quarter of the second half, a 14-7 advantage in the third period and a 2-1 margin in the fourth.
UC led 22-12 early in the third, but the Lady Eagles dropped in four 3-pointers in that quarter, including three in a row, to steal away momentum.
Jackie Hudson was the only player in double figures for UC with a game-high 15 points. Emily Lytle had 11 points, and Sara Lytle scored 10 for MHEA.
BOYS
OC 81, Madison Aca. 47
Mike Klein bottomed 5-of-7 shots from 3-point range and led all scorers with 19 points as the Rebels improved to 2-0.
Central bolted to a commanding 28-9 first-quarter lead, was up 43-22 at the half and enjoyed a comfortable 64-33 advantage with three periods in the book.
Shaw Logan had nine points and five assists for the Rebs, while Zack King added nine points and eight rebounds.
Twelve of the 16 OC players to see action scored.
SF 82, Milan 43
Ahead 39-29 at the half, the Redmen blew out the host Bulldogs with a 43-14 surge over the final two stanzas.
Keshawn McManus had a double-double (13 points, 16 rebounds) to pace SF (1-1).
Harrison Hawks had 15 points, four rebounds, four steals and four assists, while T.J. Ingram gave South Fulton a third player in double figures with 11 points.
Covington 93, UC 81
The Tornadoes fell behind big early, battled back to take the lead, but fell victim to a bigger and athletic Charger bunch.
UC (1-1) trailed 30-17 after one, but was down by just a single point (43-42) at the half. Covington outscored the locals 50-39 over the final two quarters.
The Twisters were hampered by 19 turnovers, but shot 63 percent (21-of-33) from 2-point range and made a third of their 21 shots from 3-point land.
UC outrebounded the host team 31-27.
Four Union City players scored in twin digits, led by Lamonte Dickerson, who had 17. Both Marcus DeBerry and Khiry Lewis were good for 14 points, while Malik Stockdale pitched in 11.
