“I don’t know why people don’t recognize her, but Brea is one of the top players in the state,” Redan coach Jerry Jackson said. “I know all the voting and stuff that goes down, but if they don’t have her in the top 15 (for all-state), there’s something wrong with the system.”
Elmore battled foul trouble throughout and picked up her fourth in the first nine seconds of the fourth quarter. But South Effingham never got closer than eight points in the second half, on a 3-point play by Germain that cut the lead to 36-28 midway through the third quarter. The Raiders got their first 20-point lead on a layup by Destini McClary with 3:54 to play. Jamese Abney put the game away by going 8-for-8 on free throws in the quarter. McClary scored 14 points for Redan, and Abney added 12.
