CLINTON—Brooklin McCoy of Anderson County scored a game-high 17 points in a 38-24 win over Halls in the second round of the District 3-AAA basketball tournament on Thursday.
The game was tied at the end of the first quarter, but Anderson County (13-17) gained a 10-point lead in the second quarter on its way to the win. The Lady Mavericks led by as many as 17 points in the fourth quarter.
Anderson County will play Oak Ridge (22-4) in a semifinal game at Anderson County High School at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
The Lady Red Devils (11-16) were led by the 10 points of senior Taylor Moon. Sophomore Panda Riggs had eight, and junior Rachel Drumheller scored six.
Maddie Sickau added seven for the Lady Mavericks.
Anderson County Coach Mike Ellis said the Lady Mavericks were able to get the ball inside to McCoy, and that opened up options for the team. The Lady Mavericks also played great defense and contested shots against Halls, a team that is great at shooting three-point shots, Ellis said.
The Lady Wildcats have won both of their games against Anderson County this season. Both teams will advance to the Region 2 tournament after Saturday’s match.
