Greenville cagers beat Sherman


GREENVILLE —   Maddy Crabtree scored 17 of her game-high 21 points to help the Greenville Lady Lions overtake Sherman 61-53 in District 13-4A girls basketball on Friday night in the Lions Den.

  The Lady Lions trailed 28-23 at halftime but grabbed the lead with a 24-12 advantage in the third quarter and then held off Sherman despite missing a bunch of free throws in the fourth quarter.

  Elizabeth Rutherford also pitched in 14 points and Savannah Himes added nine as the Lady Lions improved to 12-9 for the season and 2-5 in district play. Crabtree also finished with seven rebounds and four assists. Mackenzie Cooper had a big night on the boards with 16 rebounds, plus seven points and six assists.

  “Tremendous effort from everyone,” said Lady Lions coach Lesa Darst. “We had two great practices leading into this game.”

  Darst said the Lady Lions played well in the first half.

  “We just weren’t connecting on our shots. We came out on fire the second half. We mentally stayed in the game until we finished.”

  Breylyn Keys led Sherman with 17 points and Jayzhia Softly added 12 as the Lady Bearcats dropped to 15-10 and 4-3.
