The 5-10 Wilson was a key ingredient for the Lady Cougars during their outstanding 2014-15 campaign that saw them finish 32-3 overall and win the District 11-AAA and Region 6-AAA tournament championships. After advancing to the state tournament in Murfreesboro for the first time in 17 years, Dickson County dropped its tournament opener 57-49 to Bearden.

The daughter of Cherie and Clay Wilson of Dickson, Carlee plans to become a veterinarian and chose Motlow for its academic offerings as well as the opportunity to play for the Lady Bucks.

Wilson excels shooting from mid-range as well as from behind the three-point line. She played in all 35 games for the Lady Cougars, averaging 6.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists and one steal per contest and blocking 15 shots.

"I really enjoyed the environment and the teammates, and they made me feel at home, and I feel like I fit in there," Sherrod said. "I just wanted to play basketball, period. I honestly didn't care where I was. I just wanted to play and they made me feel at home."

Sherrod, who plans to major in sports management, said she wants to prove her worth on the court and hopes to take her basketball abilities even further.

"I just want to get better and get exposure and hopefully get to go to the next level," Sherrod said. "People think that just because you're JUCO you can't achieve your goals. I want to prove to them that you can do what you want with your life."

Lady Bucks end season in opening round of TCCAA/Region VII Tournament

March 4, 2015

The 2014-15 basketball season came to a swift end for the Motlow Lady Bucks Tuesday when they dropped a 71-65 decision to Roane State in the opening round of the TCCAA/Region VII Tournament at Southwest Tennessee Community College in Memphis.

The Lady Bucks (7-20) were the No. 9 seed entering the tournament, matching them with the No. 8 seeded Lady Raiders. Roane State had originally finished second in the conference but was forced to forfeit 12 of its wins due to the use of an ineligible player, dropping them to No. 8. One of the forfeited wins came against the Lady Bucks on Feb. 6 in Harriman.

After trailing 12-10 in the first 10 minutes of Tuesday's contest, the Lady Bucks went on an 11-0 run and took a 21-12 lead with six minutes to play in the half. Roane State ended the half on an 18-6 run and led 30-27 heading into the intermission.

Sophomore Chloe Neil kept Motlow close with two first-half three pointers on her way to six for the game and a team-high 20 points. After the Lady Bucks fell behind 47-39 with 11 minutes left to play, Neil hit back-to-back three pointers to pull Motlow within two, 47-45, with 9:50 remaining.

The Lady Raiders, behind 27 points from Cayla Oglesby, then went on a 16-4 run to lead 63-49 with four minutes to play. Motlow would get no closer than eight points the rest of the way.

Motlow out-rebounded Roane State 49-37 but could not overcome 25 turnovers while forcing only six steals. The Lady Bucks shot 35% from the field and hit 12 of their 14 free-throw attempts. The Lady Raiders had 24 fast-break points and converted Motlow's turnovers into 30 total points.

Neil was 6-12 behind the three-point line and added three rebounds to her 20 points. Motlow freshman Lauren Brown recorded a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Bree Horner also scored in double figures with 10 points and added six rebounds.

Additional scoring for Motlow came from Ashley Kee and Sabrina Jackson with six points each, Alexis Smith and Chelsea Holman added five points each, and Titanisha Lawless scored two. Kee, Horner and Jackson each had six rebounds, and Jackson led Motlow with five assists.
