JHS girls split two at tournament

Jemison’s girls basketball team opened its season by splitting two games at the Trinity Tip-Off Tournament.

The Panthers lost to Booker T. Washington, 38-26, but beat Marbury, 44-39.
In the first game, Jemison trailed only 11-9 at halftime but was outscored 14-2 in the third period.

Tika Nunn led JHS with eight points, and Kelsey Mims scored seven points.
Kortney Robinson posted nine rebounds, and Shayna Robinson had seven to go along with two steals.

Jemison shot only 6-of-46 from the field but stayed in the game thanks to a stingy 1-2-2 zone defense.

“We didn’t shoot the ball very well and we had a lot of turnovers, but we held them to a lot of one-shot-and-done’s,” coach Stacy McGehee said.

The defense, which is designed to hold opposing offenses to an outside shot and then put players in position to grab the rebound, was effective in holding Marbury to only one point in the first period.

The early lead allowed Jemison to withstand another bad third period—Marbury outscored Jemison 15-11 in the frame.

The Panthers shot better in the Marbury game than against Booker T. Washington, led by Mims going 6-of-14 from the field—and 6-for-7 from the free throw line—and accounting for 20 points.

Both Shayna Robinson and Shelby Lopez had seven points, and Kaitie Deavers had six points.

Kortney Robinson again had a team-high in rebounds, with 11, and Nunn added 10 boards. Nunn also had five steals.
