Turner trounces Treutlen

TIFTON — The No. 2-seeded Turner County Lady Rebels hosted the first round of the Class A public school playoffs Monday night and started off with a bang, thrashing the Treutlen Lady Vikings, 61-29. They face Mitchell County in the quarterfinals, scheduled to take place as part of a doubleheader Thursday in Ashburn.

Turner wasted no time developing a lead against a small Treutlen lineup and were up 18-4 after a quarter. Mylashia Yancey and Taylor Daniels were responsible for much of the big start, scoring 10 and 6, respectively.

Treutlen was able to score 10 in the 2nd, but could not keep up with the Lady Rebels and trailed 35-14 at halftime.

Yancey, who had 18 at the break, was not finished lighting up the scoreboard. She added 12 more in the 3rd. Turner, whose lead was 36 points, played their bench for the final period.

The combination of Yancey and Daniels was a deadly one from Treutlen. Daniels finished with 30 points, 8 rebounds and 6 steals. Daniels had a double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds, in addition to 6 steals.

Mitchell, who is a seven seed, defeated Marion County 69-39 Monday. The winner of tonight's game will go to Savannah State Saturday for the state semifinals.
