The Blackman girls flexed their muscle early and left no doubt why they're ranked number one nationally and in the state. A 16-nothing run to start the game helped the Lady Blaze bury Cumberland County 72-39. Blackman hit their first seven shots from the field and tenacious defense gave them a 25-9 lead by the end of the first quarter. They led by 28 at the half and never looked back.

Blackman advances to the TSSAA Blue Cross Basketball Championships, with their first game Wednesday. A blind draw takes place Sunday to determine the time and opponent.
