Lions secondary ready to reload for national title defense

December 7, 2011

SCOOBA – Before East Mississippi hoisted their first ever football national championship, the coaches knew it was going to be a slugfest. Both the Lions and Matadors were ranked nationally in offense and featured some of the country’s top talent in every position.
EMCC secondary coach Clifton Collins knew it was going to be a battle from the opening kickoff.
“They got some great players on offense,” he said. “We’re not taking anything away from what they can do, but we made some mistakes and took some bad angles against their running back and he scored four touchdowns on us.”

West Point falls to Lousiville

December 5, 2011

With less than six seconds left to play and West Point down by two, a last ditch three point effort was no good. Louisville got the ball back, but the Green Wave were called for an intentional which sent the Wildcats to the line on their way to the win, 56-52.

It was the third straight loss for the Green Wave.
Louisville is traditionally known for their rebounding and transition game, West Point head coach Brad Cox said his team held them in check.

Lady Raiders bounce back with defensive win

December 5, 2011

Another solid defensive performance by Oak Hill led the way for a victory as the Lady Raiders tacked on their ninth of the season, 42-27.

“We made a couple of adjustments in practice (Friday) that we tried and for the most part they did a good job with them,” head coach Stan Hughey said. “It was one of our better games defensively. Offensively, we have a ways to go. We’re not shooting the ball very well as a team.”

Tori Ellis finished with a team-high 25 points with 11 rebounds while Anna Ready finished with points. Codi Williams contributed with nine rebounds.

With a 13-8 advantage for Oak Hill after the opening quarter, the game remained close until Kirk hit a three pointer at the buzzer to cut the deficit to three heading into the half 22-19.

Starkville doubles up West Point

December 3, 2011

STARKVILLE – The West Point girls basketball team had their three-game winning streak snapped Friday night, 59-45. In their three losses this season, two have come at the hands of the Lady Yellowjackets. First year head coach Murray Woody said the difference was rebounding.

“They made some mistakes, we made some mistakes, but we didn’t rebound the basketball and got beat on the offensive glass,” he said. “Other than that I thought our effort was good, our hustle was good, and we closed the gap some. We just got beat on the boards.”
