Lady Eagles top Millsap in District 9-2A cager contest


Lone Star News Group

MILLSAP – Brock shooters Trisha Jacobs and Rachel Harrell combined for 28 points to lead the state-ranked No. 1 Lady Eagles to a convincing 57-28 victory over the Millsap Lady Bulldogs here Friday night in the girls’ District 9-2A basketball opener.

Millsap head coach Ron Berry said he saw some positives from his team defensively, but added that Brock’s defense took his team out of most of what the Lady Bulldogs wanted to do on offense.

“We had some positives defensively,” Berry said. “One of the things that we wanted to do was stop their post (Lexie Ducat), and she only had four points.

“We did a good job there, but in the second half Brock started hitting their outside shots. It was just one of those deals here you had to pick your poison.

“I told our kids that giving up 57 points to Brock is not really bad. We just have to get better at executing offensively, and we have to rebound better.”

Millsap was led offensively by guard Sydney Herbel, who finished with a game-high 17 points.

“We have three players we depend on offensively – Jolee Carswell, Hannah Hobson and Sydney,” Berry said. “Sydney did a good job, and Jolee was a little nervous early on because she plays with the Brock girls in summer leagues, but she settled down and started hitting some shots in the second half.”

Millsap jumped out to a 3-0 lead as Herbel drove the lane twice and drew fouls, converting on three of four charity shots.

But with Millsap turning its attention defensively to Ducet, Brock guard Bailey Ivey was left free on the perimeter. Ivey scored nine consecutive points – including a pair of three-pointers and converting a three-point play – to give the Lady Eagles a 13-5 lead.
