"It is hard to pinpoint Carroll, they are a run-and-gun type ballclub," CHHS head coach Carl Hollis said. "They shot the ball better the last time we played them, better than they did tonight. And I knew we had to stay on them."

"They penetrated better, but we worked on that by collapsing and I thought if we help-side on defense that it would cut out the penetration," Hollis continued. "But we didn’t take the charges like we should of took them, we jumping trying to block shots and we aren’t a shot-blocking team. We have to play fundamental basketball."

Jermaine Jackson hit two free throws with under a second left in the first quarter after a technical foul was called on Carroll following a goaltend. The bizarre ending gave the Trojans a 20-8 lead.

Carroll cut the lead to 24-19, but CHHS went on a 10-3 run to end the second quarter and take a 34-22 lead heading into halftime. Jermaine Jackson scored 10 of his 12 points during the first half.

"We shot the ball too much in the second quarter, when you get a lead, these kids have to learn how to take care of the lead," Hollis said. "We have to learn to preserve a lead and the reason we didn’t preserve the lead was because we come down the floor taking the shot on the first pass and not penetrating, just living behind the three and you can’t live out there behind the three if you are not hitting."

"I think we just got laxed because we had a big lead," Hollis added.

The Trojans(11-8) blew the game open in the third quarter behind Barron’s six points. CHHS held the Eagles to seven points in the quarter and the Trojans held a 50-29 advantage and were never threatened in the fourth quarter.

Lekory Daniels added 14 points for the Trojans.

CHHS won the B game 52-30 over Carroll. Michael Daniels lead the Trojans with 13 points.


Kelly Miller lead the Lady Trojans with 18 points and Jeneane Deveridge chipped in 17 as CHHS routed Carroll, 68-27 Friday night at CHHS.

"Of course you are going to scout teams and we already played them once," CHHS head coach Dyneshia Bankston Jones said. "I watched tapes and if you just look at the tapes and know what they do, you just capitalize on their weak points and weak spots."

The Lady Trojans dominated from start to finish, scoring the first eight points and jumping out to a 24 -7 lead at the end of the first quarter. Deveridge scored seven points in the second quarter to build a 37-16 halftime lead. Clarissa Parker lead the second half charge for the Lady Trojans. Parker scored eight points in the third quarter and finished the game with 14, and CHHS defense held Carroll to ll second half points.

CHHS ran their record to 9-8 with the win.
