The Bryan County girls’ basketball team remained undefeated Tuesday night with a 68-42 region win against Metter. The Redskins are now 5-0 overall and 2-0 in Region 2-AA.
Two-time All-Stater Julianne Brown is averaging 21 points, six rebounds, four assists and four steals, while Yasmine Crawford is chipping in 12.3 points and 10 rebounds per game from the post.
“It was nice to pick up another region win early in the season,” Coach Tamoreio Mincey said. “I was pleased with the production we got from freshman Olanna Rawls (17 points, four rebounds). She really picked up her defense and got us going in transition. Alayna Williams (13 points, 11 rebounds) played very well and I was really excited about her effort at both ends of the court.”
Bryan County hosts Toombs on Friday and Screven on Saturday.
