Cannon Girls Headed To Championship Of Trousdale County Tourney

Things are starting to click for the young Cannon County Lions basketball team.  After losing grasp of the controls in the past two basketball
games, the Lions were able to come out strong Thursday afternoon and open
the semifinal contest of the Trousdale County Holiday Classic in
Hartsville against Merrol Hyde with a 25-16 first quarter lead.  Cannon
led by 14 at half and then limited the Hawks to four field goals in the
second half as Cannon cruised for their 6th win of the year 86-45.  The
Lions will play in the fifth place game this afternoon at 2:30 against
Lancaster Christian of Smyrna.
Through two games in the Classic, the Cannon County Lionettes have not yet
met a challenge.  The Lionettes have outscored their opponents 141-45 in
the two games with the latest victim being Trousdale County.  Lionettes
shot 29 of 69 from the field in the contest and hit 5 three pointers while
causing Trousdale to turnover the ball over 30 times in the contest.  The
Lionettes advance to the championship game by beating Trousdale 74 to 28.
Cannon County’s record moves up to 14 and 3 while they will meet fellow
district 8-AA member Smith County in the championship tonight at 7:00.
