THS girls open tourney with win

THOMASVILLE — It wasn’t Thomasville’s best performance Thursday night, but the Lady Bulldogs were good enough in their first-round game of the Holiday Hoopfest.

Despite delivering what coach Thomas McAboy termed as a “flat” performance, the Lady Bulldogs surged past Mitchell County 60-41.

“I think they didn’t play well at all,” said McAboy, whose team improved to 7-0. “I just think we hadn’t played like we played the first six games.

“We made 11 3s, so I think that’s kind of why the score was the way it was. We just played flat the entire game. We didn’t play with as much energy as I would have liked.”

Jacqueria Dunbar led the Lady Bulldogs with 21 points, while teammate Haley McNeil added 16. The two sparked Thomasville’s long-range barrage with four 3-pointers each.

“It helps when (the 3s) are falling,” McAboy said, “especially on a night like this. Jacqueria, when she’s shooting it, she can really shoot the basketball.”

Danisha Jones, Khabriyah Brown and Ricarsha Johnson each scored seven for the Lady Bulldogs.

Thomasville will play again today at 7 p.m. in a semifinal matchup with Region 1-AA foe Brooks County.
