Final: Gentry 39, Pontotoc 36. Oh, so close. The Lady Warriors had four possessions while trailing by one in the fourth quarter and got nothing. They can beat this Gentry team, though. If Pontotoc wins in tomorrow’s consolation game, I expect these teams to meet again in Jackson.
Veronica Walker scored 20 points for Gentry, while Di’Amber Johnson had 14 for Pontotoc. Neither Johnson nor any of her teammates could hit a 3-pointer tonight.
Gentry is 35-0 and has now won 75 straight games. More details in Saturday’s Journal.
