Playing their most complete game of the season, Trigg County took an early lead and made it stand up in a 52-35 win over University Heights Feb. 22 at Wildcat Gym.

Before the game, Felicia Crenshaw, the lone senior on the Lady Wildcat squad, was honored.

During the game, she scored 12 points and handed out six assists in helping the Lady Wildcats to their seventh win in 22 games.

The seven wins equals Trigg County’s output from last season.

"It was our best game of the year in terms of executing our plays," said Lady Wildcat coach Amy Breckel. "I knew we were having a good night when we beat their press without the ball hitting the floor."

Trigg County was more active on defense as well, holding UHA to 25-percent shooting from the field and forcing 18 turnovers out of their zone defense.

Junior guard Molly Walters led the Lady Wildcats with a career-high 15 points, including seven in the second quarter as Trigg built a 25-19 lead by halftime.

Crenshaw scored five points, and Brandy Blakeley added three during a 10-2 Lady Wildcat run to start the second half, which extended their lead to 35-21 with 2:17 left.

UHA missed nine of ten shots during their slump and had four turnovers. Trigg County outrebounded UHA 15-7 in the third quarter and 46-34 for the game.

The Lady Blazers cut the Trigg lead to 37-27 after three quarter, but the Lady Wildcats opened on an 8-3 run, with Laykn Brooks scoring four points during the run on a pair of baseline jumpers.

UHA would get no closer the rest of the way.

Brooks finished with eight points, as did Laquisha Boyd, who added nine rebounds. Blakeley led the Lady Wildcats with 13 rebounds.

Davida Braxton had a solid game for Trigg, scoring points and hauling down eight rebounds.

Jasmine Coleman was the only UHA player to reach double figures with 15 points.

The Lady Wildcats shot 39-percent from the field and got a lot of their scoring inside, outscoring UHA 32-10 in the paint.

Trigg County leads the all-time series with UHA 11-3 and has won five of the last six meetings.

In the J.V. game, Trigg County scored the final 12 points of the game to win 36-28.

Janada Acree scored ten points, and Audrey Futrell added seven for the Lady Wildcats.
