Smith poured in 24 points and 11 rebounds to give her team a 61-36 win over tournament host Duncan to capture third place by winning two of three games. Guthrie improves to 3-2 overall on the season.

Senior forward Allyson Chadd also added a double double by scoring 11 points and bringing down 15 rebounds. Ahsley Shiels scored double figures with 12.

“We came out quick today,” assistant coach Jeff Ball said. “We played good defense which led to offense with easy buckets.” Guthrie outscored Duncan in each quarter.

Ball said the coaching staff was concerned with the slow starts and free throw shooting. Something that was not a factor on Thursday afternoon. The Lady Jays jumped out to a 24-12 first quarter lead and shot 78% (11-14) from the charity stripe.
