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."

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.

It's not over, according to Robbie Norton, who was convicted in November of 2011 of using negligence and striking Starkville resident Jan Morgan while Morgan was cycling with her friend one morning on Highway 50 West in Clay County.
Norton came before Clay County Justice Court Judge Joe Taggart on Nov. 17 and though she gave no remarks on whether or not she was negligent when Morgan was hit by Norton's car that day, she did listen to testimonies of witnesses and the testimony of Morgan who underwent extensive hospital treatment for the injuries she sustained.
