Bradley Season Comes To Close In State Tournament

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — The Bradley Central Bearettes season came to a close with a 51-42 loss to Lebanon on Wednesday afternoon at the Murphy Center on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University.

Barnes proved to be effective shooting in the contest going 5-for-11 from the floor and a perfect 7-for-7 from the free-throw line.

In a contest that looked like it would mirror the previous year, the two teams struggled to put up points in the first quarter.

The second quarter looked similar as the see-saw affair continued with Lebanon taking a three-point advantage into the break.

The Bearettes cut the lead to single digits in the fourth with a Carpenter three 18 seconds into the final period. Crittenden trimmed the lead to six on a 3-point shot with 4:26 to go but couldn’t draw it any closer as Lebanon held on for the 51-42 win.

Addie Porter paced the Devilettes with 20 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and three steals. Alissa Mulaski was the only other scorer in double digits with 11.
