BIRMINGHAM - Homewood placed four players in double figures as the Lady Patriots beat G.W. Carver, 78-48, to advance to the AHSAA Class 6A state tournament girls’ basketball championship game for the third year in a row.

The Patriots (32-2) will face Hazel Green (37-1) in the finals Saturday at 12:30 p.m. at the BJCC Legacy Arena. Homewood won the state title in 2015 and was runner-up in 2016.

Tori Webb added 16 points and eight rebounds, point guard Hannah Barber added 13 points, six assists and four steals and Shelby Hardy added 11 points for the Patriots.

Carver (11-17) was led by Adasia Rudolph’s 17 points and three steals. Kristin Brown added 11 points.

Charles Henderson girls reach finals for first time

Freshman point guard Niaira Jones was perfect on all six 3-point goals attempted Wednesday night and finished with 34 points as Charles Henderson beat Arab, 70-53, to move into Saturday’s Class 5A girls’ championship game to face three-time defending champion Wenonah. The finals will be at 9 a.m.

Jones, the daughter of Trojans head coach Dyneshia Jones, was 9-of-13 from the field and 10-of-14 at the foul line to give Charles Henderson the spark it needed to advance to the state finals for the first time in school history. The Trojans are making their third state tournament appearance in a row.

Mae Jemison 6-foot-7 senior forward John Petty scored 36 points, had 11 rebounds and seven assists to lead the Jaguars past Sylacauga, 80-59, Wednesday night in the Class 5A boys’ semifinals Wednesday.
