GREENEVILLE -- The Eaglette defense totally shutdown West Greene, allowing only 11 points in the second half on the way to a 55-27 blowout win in the Landair Ladies Classic on Friday afternoon.

After trailing 10-9 at the end of the first quarter, Shelbyville Central scored 10 unanswered points to start the second quarter, posting a lead of 20-16 at halftime before outscoring its' opponent 21-4 in the third stanza to hold a 41-20 advantage going into the fourth quarter.

"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.
