The Warren County High School girls basketball team survived a cold shooting night in Centennial Saturday to snap a three-game losing streak.Behind 18 points from Bri Melton and a stingy Lady Pioneer defense, Warren County defeated Centennial 34-25.Warren County (6-4) had lost its previous three games before Saturday and a tough shooting night nearly extended the streak to four.The Lady Pioneers missed 24 of its 28 3-pointers and made only 10-of-22 free throws, but coach Erick Baird credited his team's transition defense for the win."Lots of people have asked how we won while having a tough night shooting. It was all about defense," said Baird. "We didn't give up any easy baskets in transition."Melton looked poised to shoot the Lady Pioneers to their sixth win when she came out hitting in the first period.The team's leading scorer had seven points in the opening quarter, including sinking two 3-pointers, as Warren County led 11-8 after eight minutes.
