Basketball is known as a game of match ups. Friday night, the Lady Raiders of Coffee County took on the Raptors of Ravenwood in the Central Magnet Christmas Tournament in Murfreesboro facing a serious size match up problem. Injuries and illness had limited the Lady Raider depth in the post, and 3 first half fouls on Cameron Davis led to a severe size disadvantage for the Lady Raiders as they fell by a final of 51 to 38. Davis and Sara Brown led Coffee County in scoring with 12 points each while Tyger Fenton added 9 points. Fenton played well on the defensive end and her all around game earned her the Gateway Tire and Service Center player of the game honors.
The Lady Raiders came back on Saturday morning to take on Kingwood Christian out of Huntsville, AL. The Lady Raiders roared out to a 20 point halftime lead and coasted to a 54 to 44 win. Sara Brown had 4 three point baskets in the game to finish with a team high 16 points. Tyger Fenton had 2 three’s to finish with 15 points and McKenzie Morgan netted 8 points. The Saturday morning win gave the Lady Raiders a 2 and 1 record in the tournament and improved their overall record to 8 and 7 on the season. The Lady Raiders will be off until January 2nd when they host Warren County at the Joe Frank Patch Memorial Gymnasium.
