West Point snaps skid in 73-54 win

January 7, 2012

VARDAMAN - West Point so desperately needed a spark, but more importantly, some momentum heading into Tuesday’s district game with Oxford. They found it off the bench.
Transfer Rico Robinson scored a team-high 24 points to lead the Green Wave to a 73-54 win over Caledonia Friday night at a tournament hosted by Vardaman. They move on to play North Pontotoc.
“I feel like we’ve been playing well, we just haven’t won,” head coach Brad Cox said. “We lost a couple of close ones in those three games and this win gave us a little more confidence for Oxford.”

Oak Hill splits at Kirk tournament

January 7, 2012

GRENADA - Oak Hill Raiders head coach Brian Middleton said the biggest thing that has helped his team going over the last few weeks is “consistency from everyone.”
That consistency has triggered into a seven game winning streak after Friday night’s win over Kirk, 47-28.
The streak almost ended at six after the Raiders found themselves trailing at the half 18-17.
“We had given up seven offensive rebounds in the half, and they were getting a few put backs,” Middleton said. “And in a low scoring game like that, it was making a big difference. We just weren’t playing aggressive.”
