Barry hits 1,000 points during tourney

Posted

The Tri-County Titans girls basketball team had mixed success at the recent Trojan Holiday Tournament. 

TCT’s first game of the tournament was a rematch with the Paris Tigers in a week’s time. The Tigers overpowered the Titans in their first meeting in Paris Dec. 19. Unlike that first meeting, Tri-County came out stronger and much smoother Dec. 27, but it was Paris pulling away for a 60-42 win.

The Titans were 15 of 55 overall for 27.3 percent and 7 of 15 from the free throw line for 46.7 percent.

Taylor Barry led the Titans with 15 points, three steals, and three assists, and Bella Dudley added 13 points. Lillie Cox finished with seven rebounds in the loss.

Four Tiger players reached double figures: Sarah Isaf with 18 points, Katelyn Littleton 13 points, Madyson Rigdon 13 each points and Trinity Tingley 11 points in the win. Isaf led all scorers in the game.

Game two was a crossover game. The Titans placed third in the Gold Pool and faced off against the Cairo/Egyptian Co-Pilots with a spot in the fifth place game on the line. It was a one-sided affair as the Titans jumped out to a 34-8 lead after one quarter and increased that lead to 57-25 with 1:27 left in the third quarter. During that time, a major milestone was reached as Titans junior guard Tayler Barry scored her 1,000-career point on a bucket and Head Coach Joe Morrisey called a timeout so the feat could be recognized.

That was where the events became bizarre.

Cairo Head Coach Larry Wood was apparently furious that a timeout was called to recognize Barry’s milestone and ordered his team not to inbound the ball once play resumed. Cairo was hit with a delay of game technical foul and Barry went to the free throw line sinking both shots. After the free throws, Wood forfeited and the game came to an abrupt end at 57-25. Since the game went longer than one half, all of the statistics accumulated counted for the record books.

The Titans were 23 of 56 overall for 41.1 percent and 9 of 14 from the charity stripe for 64.3 percent. Tayler Barry finished with 14 points, Bella Dudley added nine and Caroline Smith had eight in the win.
