PIKEVILLE, Tenn.–Head coach Carlos Davis and his Lady Warriors squad (14-9) have stretched their undefeated 2017 record to 10 with their latest home win over 7-AA foe Chattanooga Christian, 59-43.
That isn’t the only streak that the Warriors are clinging to, though. They haven’t lost a home game since mid-November, which happens to be their only one of the season.
“We’re playing every night like it’s a championship game,” Davis said. “We’re taking it one game at a time so the girls will stay focused and not lose control. For the most part, they’ve got the mentality that every night is a championship night.”
Not only did the Warriors keep streaks alive Tuesday night, but they also sealed the District 7-AA title and 1-seed after already defeating Signal Mountain twice this season and having only one district blemish on their record.
“Now, we really have to try and keep them focused,” Davis said. “We’ve not even mentioned anything to them about the tournament or anything of that nature. I’d really like to win this thing out and go on a 14-game streak going into the tournament and have everything out in our corner.”
Carley Davis put up 14 points with eight of those coming in the paint. Also working down low, Lynnsey Keener pulled a double-double with 12 points and 17 rebounds on the night. The Lady Warriors shot 24 for 48 overall.
“We started being more patient,” Davis said.” We started out-rebounding them, which was a big plus. We were 56-percent from the three-point line. The free throw line is not where it needs to be, but we’re getting there.”
Early on, the Chargers kept it close, but after the 1st quarter, the duo of Keener and Davis, coupled with a couple of 8-point scorers in Roberts and Brown, were too much for the Chargers as they rolled, 59-43. Chattanooga Christian remains fourth in the seedings, but Grundy County is waiting in the shadows to grab that spot.
The Warriors to rival Van Buren County on Friday while the Chargers host Sequatchie County to tie up some loose ends in district seedings.
