Emma Owens scored 18 of her 31 points in the first quarter to help Harlan get off to a good start on the way to a 64-37 win over visiting Lynn Camp on Saturday in the Doc Gray Classic.
Harlan (10-14) has won two straight while Lynn Camp (5-20) is still trying to win consecutive games for the first time this season.
The Lady Dragons took charge early as Owens’ 18 points in the game’s first eight minutes gave her team a 23-13 advantage entering the second quarter.
Peighton Jones scored five points in the second quarter while Kylie Noe and Owens each scored four to push Harlan’s lead to 40-22 at halftime.
Lynn Camp only managed four points in the third quarter, allowing Harlan to put the game away with a 12-2 run.
The Lady Dragons return to action Tuesday in a district doubleheader at Harlan County.
“It was great to see Emma have a big game,” said Harlan coach Tiffany Hamm-Rowe. “She just does so much for us and plays hard.”
Harlan celebrated homecoming and senior night on Saturday.
“Emma’s scoring has picked up lately and man we needed it tonight. She carried us in that first quarter for sure,” added Hamm-Rowe.
Jones scored five points in the second while Owens and Kylie Noe each added four. Addison Campbell hit a 3-pointer as Harlan’s lead grew to 40-22 at halftime.
Harlan’s largest advantage of the night (64-34) came with 1:41 remaining in the game as Shelby Doan added a basket.
Noe tossed in 11 points for the Lady Dragons.
“We’ve had four games this week and two tough district games. We got banged up a little bit and wanted to finish the week strong,” said Rowe. “We’ve got to go 10 or 11 deep all week, and I feel like this will help us in the postseason.”
For the second straight game, Harlan starters Aymanni Wynn and Leah Davis missed due to injuries.
Harlan hit 21 if 52 from the floor for 40 percent. The Lady Cats shot 28 percent on 13 of 46.
The Lady Dragons held a 27-24 rebounding edge. The Lady Cats committed 24 turnovers while Harlan had 14.
“We were inefficient with turnovers the whole game,” said Lynn Camp coach Josh Mobley. “We struggled tonight with rebounding as well as they had plenty of offensive boards and second-, third-, fourth-chance opportunities at the rim.”
