Dec. 30, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

CINCINNATI -- Tyra James and Xavier University recruit Imani Partlow combined for 43 points to lead Winton Woods to a 56-51 win over Huntington St. Joe in the Braggin Rights Classic girls basketball tournament Saturday at Walnut Hills High School.

James led the Warriors (10-2) with 22 points and Partlow contributed 21 along with a game-high 17 rebounds in a double-double performance for the 6-foot-1 forward/center.

Griffin Dempsey paced the Irish (8-3) with 20 points and Mychal Johnson added 16. However, the two went a combined 11-for-33 shooting. Six of Dempsey's seven baskets were 3-pointers. St. Joe attempted 31 from behind the arc and made 11.

The Irish relied on their outside game. They went to the foul line six times with Johnson going 6-for-6.

Class A No. 1 St. Joe, which has won five straight state championships, is off until Jan. 8 when the Irish travel to Spring Valley (No. 2 in Class AAA prior to Saturday's 72-64 home loss to Huntington High).
