Demarius Calvert is an offensive threat for zone defenses as he is always finding open space and getting high-percentage baskets.
Against the Saltillo zone, Calvert scored a game-high 25 points and helped the Green Wave with his 12 points during the third quarter to secure a pull-away win over the Tigers, 88-62, in the District 2-5A opener Tuesday night in West Point.
â€śWe slowed down and started moving the ball around more on offense,â€ť Calvert said. â€śWe also played better defense (in the second half).

Christmas has come and gone, but the gifts received have a ways to go. If a bike somehow finagled its way under a Christmas tree with a childâ€™s name inscribed on an attached tag, but without a handy bicycle helmet, then good news is afoot. Beginning at 9 a.m. and pushing through to 2 p.m. Saturday, the West Point Police Department will host its second bicycle helmet giveaway in front of the department headquarters.
