FINAL: Rocky Mount 61 Holly Springs 48: It was a tale of two halves in Game 2 of the 4-Team Girl's Bracket of the 2011 HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational, as the Rocky Mount Gryphons pulled away from the Holly Springs Lady Hawks to take away a victory.

The team's were even throughout the first half, but the difference was J'Kyra Brown and her hot shooting. Brown had a personal 11-0 run in the third quarter (9 of which from 3 pt range). The Hawks had no answer for Brown and ultimately led to the demise of Holly Springs. Brown finished with 30 points. Holly Springs was led by Kiara Leslie with 22 points.

HALFTIME Rocky Mount 21 Holly Springs 20: We are in the middle of a see-saw affair in Game 2 of the 4-Team Girl's Bracket portion of the 2011 HighSchoolOt.Com Holiday Invitational. Guard J'Kyra Brown of Rocky Mount hit a 3 as time expired at the end of the half to push the Gryphons into the lead. The intensity level on the court is showing as the physical play on both ends has dominated the play thus far.

END 1Q Rocky Mount 11 Holly Springs 8: In a back and forth first quarter, the Gryphons of Rocky Mount claim a lead over Holly Springs after the 1st quarter. In a game, not absent of intensity and effort, we saw a a lot of physical play in the paint area.

PREGAME: Game 2 of the first day of the 2011 HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational sees Holly Springs and Rocky Mount squaring off in the other half of the 4-Team Girl's Bracket.

Rocky Mount returns three starters from a 25-4 team last year. The Gryphons are led by senior Tia Hudgins.

The winner of this game will face off against Cary Academy in the winner's bracket game of the 4-Team Girl's Bracket. The loser will face Cary High School.
