Defending tournament champion and unbeaten Bradley Central had their hands full with South Greene, but they turned in a torrid third quarter and went on to beat the Rebels 64-56 in a showdown between two state powers in the Ladies Classic semifinals.

Bradley (15-0) trailed the Rebs by as many as 18 points in the first half as they shot miserably from the floor, but the game turned quickly in the third period as the shots began falling and they overcame a 34-26 halftime deficit with a 25-10 quarter.

The Bears hit 10 3-pointers in the game, led by Kaleigh Hughes with six. Hughes finished with 23 points while Rhyne Howard scored 16. After shooting only 32 percent in the first half, the Bears hit 13 of 25 second half shots.

Taylor Lamb showed why she has been a Miss Basketball finalist for two straight years, scoring 32 points on the night, raking in 15 rebounds, blocking two shots and dished two assists. Kinsley Wyke came off the bench to score 10.

After getting behind by 11 points in the third quarter, South Greene righted the ship and closed back to within a single bucket at 54-52 with four minutes left in the game. But they made three straight turnovers at that point and Bradley took advantage.

The Rebels lost for only the second time this season against 14 victories as they play for third place in this tournament on Saturday at 3:00. Bradley plays for their second straight championship at 4:30.
