"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Down five with under three minutes to play and trailing
by a point with less than a minute to go, Colonial Forge's 24-game winning
streak was very much in jeopardy and the state title looked to be headed
class=SpellE>Landstown's way. But
the Eagles got key plays from the likes of Jennings and Burgess as well as
Daniel with a jumper that put them ahead for good with 42 seconds to play.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Forge outscored Landstown
15-10 in the fourth quarter and got 10 of those points off turnovers.
style=> Jennings really sparked that with his steals
and defensive hustle. Haskins didn't
have his typical night, and in fact, the 6A-South Region Player of the Year had
one of his worst shooting games of the year.
However, he didn't turn it over once in 25 minutes played and still did
things defensively to impact the game.
What Colonial Forge does so well as another
Head Coach in 6A pointed out to me before this game is not beat themselves with
a lot of mistakes. They turned it over
only eight times the entire night, and they had 15 offensive rebounds against a
6-foot-8 star for Landstwn.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Speaking of that 6-foot-8 star for Landstown,
can one have a better or more efficient stat line than Bolstad
did? To be perfectly honest, he didn't
get enough touches. Pringle played very
well this postseason, but was contained much of the second half and Nicholson
being in foul trouble carried over to some struggles at the offensive end for
an Eagles team that was unable to hit a three-pointer in the second half.

line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>With 1.2 seconds left and
Colonial Forge up by three, junior Winston
Burgess heads to the foul line to shoot.

trailed with 1:08 to go after a basket by Darius
Bolstad inside.

style=> The defensive pressure for Forge has to be
top-notch and create some turnovers, and it may take Landstown
helping out with some missed free-throws.

115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Some really good time management by
the Eagles in white (that's

quarter without their second leading scorer on the season in junior wing
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>R.J. Nicholson, who has four
fouls. Look for him to return early in
the fourth quarter around the 5 or 6 minute mark.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Colonial Forge, which has had a fabulous season and is
riding a 24-game winning streak, might be seeing the energy tank run low and
close to empty. The Eagles aren't going
to win this game unless they can get their guards to get on track, specifically
Marco Haskins.
style=> Single-digits just isn't
going to cut the mustard in my opinion for them to prevail.

PM:
9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>We're seeing why
Colonial Forge has won 24 in a row and they've responded when

the lead. The Eagles' only loss this

Norcom (sorry

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Miss Adomako was absolutely
tremendous and put up outstanding numbers of 23 points and 16 rebounds while
facing a future ACC player in Floyd and still managed a high scoring output
despite 33% shooting from the floor.
Jones' defensive play cannot be overstated; her ability to disrupt the
ball-handlers led to some key turnovers and scoring opportunities for
class=GramE>Cosby, and Stonewall Jackson is a team that doesn't make
that many mistakes.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>The future still remains bright for Stonewall Jackson,
and Parker can be an impact player in the years to come.
style=> In this game, the rebounding was hard to
overcome as Cosby extended their possessions with five or six players on the
roster at least 6-feet-tall.

the Cosby Lady Titans have done the unthinkable, completing an undefeated

Regardless of competition and classification, to go an entire season,

PM:
9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>To win a
Championship, it sometimes takes a team being able to ice it at the free-throw
line when the opposition is making a rally.
That is what undefeated Cosby has done as Stonewall Jackson standout
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Nicole Floyd, a Wake Forest commit,
drained a tough three-pointer to pull the Lady Raiders within three at 49-46
with 17.8 seconds left.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Down the stretch in the final 30 seconds, Cosby was a
perfect 6-for-6 at the foul line as Jocelyn
Jones (UNC), Tyra Whitehead (Wake
Forest) and Dorothy Adomako
(Georgetown) all calmly sank free-throws to finish the job.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>The final seconds are ticking away and it appears that
Cosby will capture their first state title in the school's history in Girls

PM:
9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Just when Cosby
thought they might be pulling away and in position to salt away their ever
State Championship here in the Girls 6A State Final, the Stonewall Jackson Lady
Raiders are inching closer. They get to
the foul line, knock down 1-of-2, and create a couple of turnovers with their
athleticism on defense.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Cosby is still in front by a count of 45-41 with 1:26
to play. A jump-ball and possession
arrow in favor of the Lady Titans keeps Stonewall Jackson from having a shot to
get within one or two. As long as the
guards for Cosby can play keep away and effectively milk clock, they'll be
fine. But Stonewall Jackson is going to
need a couple of three-pointers to fall to complete stunning comeback.

PM:
9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>The defense for
Cosby in the early part of this fourth quarter has been nothing short of
superb. Major kudos must go to guard
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Jocelyn Jones, a 6-foot-tall sophomore
verbally committed to UNC. She's really
locking up the Stonewall Jackson guards and it's making the Lady Raiders depend
on scoring from their front-court. With
Cosby's size inside, that isn't always easy to get.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Bad news for Stonewall Jackson is that with 3:58 to go,
Nicole Floyd (Wake Forest commit) is
called for her fourth foul. Cosby is in
the bonus and that will allow sophomore Tyra
Whitehead, another Wake Forest commit, to head to the foul line and try to
up that 41-36 lead.

3rdQ in Girls 6A Hoops Championship - - Cosby 36, Stonewall Jackson 34

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Stonewall Jackson has done an effective job of
doubling, and even occasionally, triple teaming the Cosby star inside
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Dorothy Adomako.
style=> She still is making a major impact on this
game with 14 points and 13 rebounds despite a rough shooting night of
5-for-20. When the guards can play so
well, which Jocelyn Jones (UNC
commit) has done with 10 points and no turnovers while coming up with four
steals defensively, it makes this Cosby team so difficult to defend.
style=> They have others that hit the boards besides
class=SpellE>Adomako, too.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>For Cosby to gain some separation and much-needed
breathing room, they're going t have to knock down a couple of outside shots to
loosen up the defense. So far, they are
0-for-6 from beyond the arc. Stonewall
Jackson is +9 in that category, but minus 11 on the boards with two of those
starters yet to record an offensive rebound.
They have to extend possessions because shooting over 35% in the fourth
and final quarter will be hard to do.

style='font-size:9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>7:29
PM:
9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>One of
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Nicole Floyd's future teammates at Wake
Forest will be Tyra Whitehead, a
6-foot-3 sophomore that has not been much of a factor offensively, but
corralled five defensive rebounds. Whitehead's
basket puts Cosby back on top 33-32.
Floyd has been to the foul line 106 times on the season and made 86
coming into this title match. Cosby is
starting to maximize their trips there after no attempts from the charity
stripe in the first quarter.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>For Stonewall Jackson to extend their winning streak to
14 games to close the season and knock off a Cosby team that is ranked as high
as #17 nationally by USA Today, they're going to need to defend inside without
fouling. Floyd is known for her offensive
exploits, but it'll be defensively keeping Adomako
from swooping in for rebounds that will determine this one.

PM:
9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>To start the second
half, Stonewall Jackson has come out with a renewed sense or energy and
aggressiveness behind their senior leader Nicole
Floyd. The Wake Forest signee had
seven points in the first half and is up to 11 after a couple of quick
makes. Complementing her out nicely is
sophomore Genesis Parker, a 5-foot-8
sophomore with a knack for making the difficult plays look easy.
style=>

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Those two players, Floyd and Parker, have 11 points
apiece.
Suddenly, Stonewall Jackson is back in the lead at 32-31, riding an
8-4 spurt with a little less than four minutes to go in the third quarter.

Lady Raiders - -8-24FG, 3-7 3's 5-8FT, 16Reb. 5Ast. 6TO's,
3Stl.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>What really jumps out to me in the first half
statistics is that Cosby took 10 more shots and controlled the glass, being
+12. Having Adomako
allows them to get second shots, and not to be forgotten is Jefferson who has
three offensive boards and is no slouch in the frontcourt either.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>As long as Cosby gets out on shooters and doesn't give
up too many clean looks from the outside, Coach Mead's team will complete the
undefeated dream season.

9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Wake Forest pledge
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Nicole Floyd has displayed a really
good middle game shooting the basketball for Stonewall Jackson to make up for a
quiet first half so far on the backboards.
There's a reason why she's going to play her College Hoops in the ACC
and averages 23PPG. Her jumper is pure
and offensive game is lethal.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Cosby is starting to get second chance opportunities

9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>The second period
has belonged to Cosby as they have been able to get in the paint with
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Dorothy Adomako and
Skye Jefferson doing work.
style=> We're seeing the Lady Titans stay patient at
the offensive end and not rush things.
Defensively, they still have some things to iron out because Stonewall
Jackson is converting and seeing a lot of high-percentage shots.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Stonewall Jackson buries a three-pointer with
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Rachel Burns, a 5-foot-6 junior and
captain to increase their lead to 24-18 with 5:02 left in the half.
style=> Cosby is zeroing in on them, and once the
guards start to penetrate the defense, it could be tough for the Lady Raiders'
defense to handle them given their noticeable height advantage.

style='font-size:9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>7:03
PM:
9.0pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Offensively,
everything seems to be falling the way of Stonewall Jackson and it's not
necessarily indicative in the statistics with them shooting 40% at 6-of-15
compared to the 6-of-187 for Cosby at 35.3% from the floor.
style=> They turned the ball over only twice and really
held their own against a Cosby team with great size, having five players at
6-feet-tall or bigger.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>No outside shots have gone down for Cosby and I reckon
that will change in the second quarter as they start to pound the ball inside
and the Stonewall Jackson defense has to collapse on those post players like
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Dorothy Adomako,
the Gatorade Girls Basketball State Player of the Year who comes in averaging
21.7 points per game.
