GRAY — One small “Brooke” opened up the flood gates against Cherokee in the first game of the Johnson City Honda Invitational. Brooke Brown fired in 36 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Johnson County past the Lady Chiefs, 62-55.
The Lady Longhorns used a well-balanced scoring attack in the first quarter to build a 14-6 advantage. Brown provided four points and pair of pinpoint passes for layups to Kelsey Duperry and Mary Taylor to get the ball rolling.
It was a start that was pleasing to head coach Todd Whittemore.
