Coastal Alabama girls' basketball High-Five: Area tournament edition
MOBILE, Alabama -- Here is a special area tournament edition of the Coastal Alabama girls’ High-Five, highlighting the top five girls basketball performances in last week’s area tournaments. Fittingly, this was one of the stronger weeks of the year.
Here we go:
5.) Faith Academy’s Jasmine Rhodes had 17 points, eight rebounds and three steals as the Class 5A No. 3 Rams won the Area 1 championship with a 49-36 victory over LeFlore. Rhodes, an LSU signee, is winding down her career as the school’s all-time leader in points, rebounds and steals.
4.) Latia Pullum had a big week in leading Baldwin County to the 6A Area 3 tournament title. Pullum scored a game-high 27 points in a 62-41 semifinal rout of Foley, then scored 17 as the Tigers held off Robertsdale 40-35 in the final.
3.) After missing her team’s area semifinal game with the flu and not starting in the final against Murphy, Blount freshman Cierra Johnson came up big. She scored 17 points, including the last five, as the fourth-ranked Leopards held off the seventh-ranked Panthers 52-46. She also had five steals and five rebounds.
2.) Sophomore Emani Mhoon kept Class 4A No. 2 UMS-Wright rolling. Mhoon scored 16 points, hitting 4 of 5 three-pointers, in a 68-12 rout of Thomasville in the semifinals, then poured in 29 as the Bulldogs beat Clarke County in the final. It was UMS’ third win over No. 3 Clarke County this season, and Terry Canova’s team has now won 13 games in a row. And the top performance this week belongs to:
1.) Jewel Hill of Class 1A No. 1 St. Luke’s. Hill led the way in a Area 1 semifinal win over J.U. Blacksher with 24 points, then scored a game-high 26 in a narrow 51-50 win over McIntosh in the championship game. Hill was named tournament MVP. St. Luke’s has won 23 straight games.
