A hot start propelled the Lady Braves (8-11) to the upset road win over 15 point favorite North Miami (14-5). Mac never trailed in moving to 3-5 in the Three Rivers Conference. Lilly Maple led in scoring with 26 points. Alex Merritt led in rebounds with a career-high 15, to go with 15 points. Ashley Jess led in assists with 5, to go with 6 rebounds, and Monica Moore led in steals with 4, to go with 10 rebounds. Other scorers were Mckenna Wilson (5), Josie Pyke (4), Moore (3), and Jess (2). The first quarter started with a Merritt basket off a Jess pass, a Moore 3 point-play off a Merritt pass, another Jess to Merritt basket, a Pyke basket off a Wilson pass, 2 Pyke free throws, and 9-2 and 11-4 leads that set the tone with balanced team play on both ends of the court. The Lady Warriors made runs to cut it to 2 in the second, and 3 in the fourth quarter but could get no closer. A busy last week of the regular season continues for the Lady Braves today at Frankfort, with JV starting at 6 pm.
