"We played well today and really got after it," Central coach Kevin Thomas said.
"We were able to apply a lot of full-court pressure and got a lot of turnovers."
The Eaglette defense caused 35 West Greene turnovers while Shelbyville's offense only committed nine.
Bree Horner scored 10 of the Eaglettes' first 12 points and finished with a game-high 16 tallies, including a pair of 3-pointers.
Eaglette freshman Olivia Doak turned in her best performance of her short high school career with 10 points.
Rachel Hensley paced West Greene with a dozen points.
"This was a great team win but a couple of players in Olivia Doak and Teanna Edmondson came in off the bench and got a lot of minutes and played well," Thomas said.
Shelbyville (7-8) held a 31-26 edge on the glass.
The Eaglettes played Mt. Juliet in their final game of the tournament Saturday.
