Trevor Goodson @Cousintrevvv takes a peak at first round games in the KHSAA Sweet 16
Holy Cross – Covington 51, Bell County 33
It’s tough to win a game when your star player, the player that has carried you through the season, shoots 7 for 27 from that floor. That is exactly what happened to Bell County. Kentucky signee Maci Morris couldn’t get shots to fall, especially early, and that led to Bell County not having a chance. Holy Cross dominated inside, out rebounding Bell County by 11. They were lead by their dominant Senior duo in Wright State signee Deja Turner and Bellarmine signee Ally Mayhaus. Turner lead HC with 15 points, while Mayhaus scored 14 points & pulled down 12 rebounds. Maci Morris led all scorers with 17 points.
Elizabethtown 79, Mercer County 38
There really isn’t much that anyone can say about this game. Rumor in the gym wass that this was the first time a running clock has been enforced during the Girls’ Sweet 16. Elizabethtown out rebounded Mercer County 43 to 20, there truly wasn’t a thing that Mercer County could have done. 2016 Notre Dame commit, Erin Boley, led all scorers with 24 points while also grabbing 9 rebounds, LA Tech signee Reaunna Cleaver recorded 15 points and 12 rebounds, College of Charleston signee Darrien Huff had 13 points, and 2017 Jada Stinson finished with 12 points for Elizabethtown. 2018 Seygan Robins led Mercer County with 13 points, and Senior Heidi Huffman finished with 11 points.
