Green Wave shocks Chargers in 69-60 home win on Friday

On Tuesday night, the West Point Green Wave (9-8; 2-0) came out flat against a fast Starkville High School basketball team. They fell behind early and could not make up ground before losing the non-district game.
On Friday, the Green Wave returned to the court, with a lot more on the line. Facing an Oxford team with a 2-0 district record, West Point could not afford to fall behind early.
They did just the opposite, dominating the Chargers in a 69-60 home victory.

Something had to give on Friday night. The West Point Lady Green Wave hoops team and the Lady Chargers of Oxford both came into the game with only two losses on the season.
West Point had a 13-game winning streak on the line, and they needed a big win in just their second district match to take over first place in the division.
The streak would not be extended and the Lady Wave experienced their first district loss of the season, falling to a tough Oxford team 72-57.
