The Mt. Juliet basketball teams were matched up with tough competition over the weekend at the Chick-Fil-A, only coming away with one win in four games. 

That win came for the Lady Bears Friday night, as they dominated Cane Ridge, 68-26. 

Mt. Juliet jumped out to a 23-0 lead before Cane Ridge scored their first points. Rae DeGray led the way in the first quarter with 11 points. Ashley Roby hit a pair of three’s in the quarter as well. Mt. Juliet was up 25-2 after the first quarter and showed no signs of slowing down. 

The Lady Bears dominated the boards getting plenty of second chance opportunities to score. Karly Dyer hit a pair of late threes, and DeGray had 16 points in the first half. The Lady Bears led 47-16 at halftime. 

DeGray was the leading scorer for the Lady Bears finishing with 23 points. Roby had 15 points and hit three 3-pointers. Ronjanae DeGray was the leading rebounder and finished with 17 points as the Lady Bears beat Cane Ridge 68-26.

In the late game, the Bears took on the Brentwood Bruins, a state semifinalist last year. The Bruins came out on top, 53-37. Both teams were back and forth to start the game. Brentwood hit a couple threes and Mt. Juliet’s Christian Bell had a pair of threes. The end of the first quarter was tied at 12-12. The Bruins turned it up on defense against the Bears in the second quarter. Mt. Juliet was forced to make more passes then they probably wanted to and wasn’t able to hit many shots. Nonetheless, they were only down 23-18 at the half, with Bell leading in scoring with eight points. 

Mt. Juliet couldn’t get anything going in the second half. They gave up multiple 3-pointers and turnovers that led to a 43-22 lead for the Bruins heading into the fourth. Brentwood hit eight 3-pointers in the game with five different players hitting a three.  The Bears fought hard in the fourth, but the Bruins were too much for Mt. Juliet, winning 53-37. Trey Pruitt and Bell each had eight points in the game for the Bears. 

Saturday, both teams suffered losses to Stewart’s Creek. The girls lost 53-48, and the boys lost 50-42.
