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.”

Kemper takes two from Hebron in district play

January 7, 2012

PHEBA - Hebron didn't have their first lead of the ball game until two minutes left in the third quarter, setting up a very exciting finish Friday night.

With five seconds on the clock, the Eagles (8-9, 1-2) have the ball at mid-court and Hayden Carty drives to basket hoping to draw some connect and a whistle, but it never came. Kemper Academy handed the Eagles their third straight loss, 45-44 in district action.

Hebron splits with Heritage

January 6, 2012

PHEBA - Hebron's offense had a tough time clicking Thursday night, fortunately, their defense wasn't.

The Lady Eagles (12-7) overcame a two point second quarter slump to pull out a 37-29 win over Class AAA Heritage Academy. It was the fourth consecutive win for the girls who are now 6-0 at home this season.

"I was most pleased with how we played on defense tonight," head coach William Cotton said. "Our offense wasn't near up to snuff. We tired to switch it up between man to man and zone and box out their best shooter. All the defensive strategy worked."

Both the girls and boys teams will take on regional rival MAIS Class AAA Heritage Academy at home. Games are slated for 4 pm.

Wave drop a pair to Louisville

January 4, 2012

West Point was handed their third consecutive loss Tuesday night. And at 5-10, it’s tough to really tell how well the season is going.
“We still haven’t put it all together, and we’re still not playing as good as we should have,” head coach Brad Cox said. “But we’re very close. The record looks a lot worse than it really is.”
The Green Wave lost a heartbreaker, 52-49 on the road at Louisville. It’s their first game back since December 20.
Leading 23-21 at the half, the Green Wave found themselves down six points in the first two minutes of the third quarter and really never recovered.
