The West Point Lady Green Wave hoops team has been doing well as of late, sealing three wins in a row, leading up to district play.
That first district game is set to take place tonight, as the Lady Wave prepare to face Saltillo on the road.
Last Week, the girls hit the court for the first time against Noxubee County. Noxubee stayed in the game for all four quarters, but West Point prevailed in the end. The same was the case for last Friday night’s home game against Aberdeen.

The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles have been really good to start the 2010-2011 season. The only problem they have had lately is that they have played back-to-back games against two of the toughest opponents they might face this season.
The first of those contestants was the always dangerous Leake Academy girls. They were the first team to defeat Hebron this season, and they did that last Saturday.
The second defeat for the Lady Eagles came against a cross county competitor in Oak Hill Academy.
