STAR-STUDDED PERFORMER: Camryn Crider of Cold Springs - 17 points, 8-11 FGs, 6-9 treys, 1-2 FTs, 2 rebounds, 2 assists.
FLASH NOTES: Camryn Crider looked very healthy for Cold Springs in her third game back after missing half of January with an ankle injury. That was good news for the No. 3 seed Lady Eagles.
The bad news was the team was not at full strength again, due to sophomore guard Neely Ellison out for the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury last Thursday in a victory at Good Hope. Ellison is scheduled to have surgery on Friday in Birmingham.
With Crider shooting 72 percent for the game, it inspired Cold Springs early as the Lady Eagles ran out to a 23-9 first period lead and was on top 33-15 at the break.
By halftime, Tammy West's Lady Eagles were shooting 12 of 20, six of 12 in three-point attempts, holding Holly Pond to six of 20 from the floor and just three of 11 in treys.
The Lady Eagles would go 18 for 41 on the night and a respectable 10 of 21 from long range for 48 percent.
Aubrey Negron worked hard to gather seven rebounds in leading her team while Kinley Campbell produced a team high three assists.
Elizabeth Hill shot 57 percent from the field, took down five rebounds and blocked four shots in the paint.
Cold Springs has won six of its last eight games in looking ahead to a semifinal showdown with 2nd seed West Point Thursday at 7:30 p.m. on the Wallace State campus.
