A season of highlights continues for Shanea Armbrister (188-G) as she takes on a larger role for the Georgia Lady Bulldogs women's basketball team this season. In her latest outing, Armbrister scored a career high 18 points and dished the game winning assist in the Lady Bulldogs' 70-68 win over the Vanderbilt Commodores. She shot 7-11 from the field and 2-4 from beyond the arch and added three assists and one steal. On their final possession of the game, Armbrister drove into the lane with the final seconds and found Stephanie Paul who made a jumper to give Georgia the win. It was Armbrister's second double-digit scoring performance of the season and her career. Georgia trailed by as much as 13 during the first half before they stormed back to win their fourth win of the last five meetings against Vanderbilt. 'We had to get our minds right in the locker room. We talked about picking the energy up, picking each other up, and that's what we did,' Armbrister said. 'They switched it up a lot so we really had to focus in on what plays they were running and being able to figure out what their strategy is.' Paul was one of four Lady Bulldogs who scored in double figures. 'I saw Shanea had the ball left and I just tried to catch to an open space and hope I was open. It's shots that we talk a lot in practice, that we do all the time, so I knew I would be able to make it.' Georgia improved to 10-6 on the season, third in the SEC. 'Shanea and Stephanie's confidence were building and they both really came out and carried us when some of our other players were struggling in the first half,' said Georgia head coach Joni Taylor , 'All day long when someone needed to make a play, absolutely needed it, they stepped up. That was really good for us and that is what we have been telling our team. It takes four, it takes five, it takes everyone that comes on the floor to be locked in and make a play.' The Lady Bulldogs will take a two game winning streak on the road against the No.5 ranked team in the nation, the South Carolina Gamecocks. This season for Armbrister has not only featured several career highs but has given her the opportunity to play at home for the first time in years when Georgia competed in the Junkanoo Jam in Bimini last November. On the season she is averaging 6.4 points, four rebounds and 2.1 assists in 25 minutes per game. As a transfer after a storied junior college career, Armbrister played in 21 games last season for the Bulldogs. After battling through a torn meniscus in the early part of the year, the six-foot, two-inch wing player hit 45 per cent from three-point range, the best average on the team for players with 10 or more attempts. Over the season she averaged 2.2 points and one rebound per game. Courtesy of: tribune242.com

Bahamas strengthened its claim of being the best junior basketball territory in the Caribbean with a win in the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) Girls' Under-16 Championships that had emulated the Boys, which won a week earlier at the same venue. Bahamas won 55-50 in a bruising battle that was decided in the last five minutes against Suriname to bring the curtains came down on the Championships that Guyana hosted at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall over the last two weeks. Eventual Most Valuable Player (MVP), Tanea Bowleg penetrated the Surinamese defence with perfection for 19 points and also grabbed 12 rebounds. Valicia Demeritte contributed 14 points and nine rebounds for Bahamas. Suriname's best scorer was Mirelva Marica with 15 points while Chayenne Breinburg scored 12 points. It was a close game throughout with the biggest disparity between the two teams being the free-throw shooting where the Bahamas went 15-31 from the charity stripe compared to Suriname's 5-22 let down. The Bahamas basically bullied their way in the post to score all of their points in a clear strategy to get to the basket, without hoisting a single shot from beyond the three-point arc. Only a week earlier, Bahamas' male team defeated Guyana in similar fashion. Minister of Public Telecommunications, Cathy Hughes, who played no small role in ensuring a successful championship, congratulated the girls before presenting them with the Championship Trophy. 'This has been an awesome opportunity for young people to get together from the Caribbean to learn about the region and get to know each other better. Congratulations to my sisters,' Hughes said, adding that Guyana is grateful for the opportunity. Earlier in the evening, British Virgin Islands (BVI) held off Antigua and Barbuda for a 44-38 win in the third place playoff. BVI's defence was impeccable and held the Antiguan offence to single digit scores in the first three quarters of the game. Forward, Shauliqua Fahie scored more than half of BVI's points with 25 to lead her squad to the win. She also had nine rebounds and five steals to help BVI maintain their advantage throughout the course of the game. Timna Philip had a double-double for Antigua with 14 points and 13 rebounds while Britnay Gore had nine points and 16 rebounds. The top three teams qualified for the CentroBasket U-17 Championships.
