Lady Blazers playing best of season

While a top-two finish in the conference is unlikely, Boone (14-8, 7-4) sits at third place among the Big 8 contenders after moving up a spot following two huge road wins.
The first as on Jan. 24 against Dobyns-Bennett in Kingsport, which was followed with another win against Volunteer.
In their first contest of the week against the Lady Indians, a huge third quarter spurt by the Lady Blazers quickly turned a highly contested two-point advantage at intermission into a 16 point advantage heading into the fourth.
Boone outscored the tribe in the third stanza by 14 points, after putting up a whopping 23 points in the quarter.
D-B had the advantage in the fourth, outscoring the Lady Blazers by three points in the final eight minutes, but Boone held on for the 58-45 win.
The Blazers were paced in the contest by Jennifer Snyder, who finished with 15 points and sharpshooter Jordan Bacon, who chipped in 13.
At Volunteer, the Lady Blazers relied heavily on the three-point shooting of Bacon, who finished with five baskets behind the arc.
The senior wing led the Blazers with 17 points.
The Blazers raced out to an 11-6 first quarter advantage, which they stretched to a nine-point lead at the half.
Boone didn’t let up in the second half, outscoring Volunteer in both of the final two quarters for the 60-44 victory.
Snyder once again reached double-figures in scoring with 14 points. Natalie Sheffey added 11 in the win.
Boone will try and continue its push for a top three seed this week with home games against Science Hill on Jan. 31 and Feb. 3 against Sullivan Central.
