Wednesday, January 11, 2017 - by special to The Chattanoogan.com

Holy Toledo, folks.

Bradley Central’s state-ranked Bearettes sent other District 5-3A teams a demoralizing message Tuesday night when they stomped Soddy-Daisy 93-15 one of the most lopsided wins in the program’s storied history.

The 78-point margin of victory is stunning and upcoming district foes have to take notice because this edition of Bearettes basketball is capable of achieving extraordinary accomplishments on the hardwood.

In the team’s last three meetings, Bradley combined winning point spread is 168 points.

The Bearettes, ranked No. 1 in Class 3A by coachT.com, now leads the all-time series with the Lady Trojans 84-28 and have won 31 straight.

The last time Soddy-Daisy defeated Bradley by 57-56 in overtime was on Feb. 11, 2000.

Tuesday’s game was not the highest point production against Soddy-Daisy. On Jan. 31, 2006, the Bearettes scored 95 points in a 49-point win.

After Tuesday’s blowout the Bearettes are 17-0 starting this season and they raced to a 17-0 first-quarter lead, basically taking what suspense there was out of the game.

Senior Halle Hughes scored 10 of those first 17 points.

Hughes finished with a game-high 18 points on 6-of-7 shooting and outscoring the Lady Trojans by three points. She added four assists and three steals in just nine minutes on the floor.

Rhyne Howard scored 14 points and hit 7-of-9 shots, also contributing four assists and four steals. Kimia Carter added 12 points. She also played only nine minutes.

Emma Kate Brown had 10 points.

Bradley led 34-6 after one quarter and 59-11 at halftime.

The Bearettes outscored the Lady Trojans 34-4 in the second half and scored more points in each of the first, second and third quarters than the Trojans managed in the game.

Bradley’s game statistics bordered on the astonishing.

The Bearettes had a 36-0 margin in fastbreak points. It was 57-9 in points off turnovers; 66-10 in the paint; 14-2 on second-chances and 40-3 off the bench.

Bradley made 38-of-58 shots for 65.5 percent; the Lady Trojans sent 7 for 27 for 25.9 percent. The Bearettes were 3-of-7 (42.9 percent) from 3-point distance while Soddy-Daisy was 1-for-8 for 12.5 percent.

The Lady Trojans missed all three free throws attempts and Bradley was 14 of 19.

Alex Trimiar led Soddy-Daisy with six points.

Bradley Central boys 79, Soddy-Daisy 46: Cole Copeland and Ty Beavers combined for 54 points to lead the Bears (9-6) to an easy victory over the Trojans (1-14), who have dropped 13 straight.

Copeland led the way with 28 points on 12-of-17 shooting (71 percent) and 11 rebounds. He hit 4-of-6 3-point attempts.

Beavers, who connected on 10-of-15 shots, finished with 26 points, including 4 of 8 behind the 3-point line.

You would think that after 40 years of publishing an annual list of things for which I am thankful, I’d be getting to the bottom of it, but it seems the older I get I have found I appreciate so much more around me. I take absolute delight in planting a flower, feeding the birds and throwing a ball for my dog. I find that the more people who I come to know the more who I come to ... (click for more)
