The Lady Green Wave basketball players have been on a roll since December. The girls will enter tonight’s home game against Starkville with a 13-2 overall record, with a 1-0 mark in district play.
They have not lost since the beginning of the season, and they seem to be getting better every time out.
A week after claiming the first-place trophy at the Vardaman Tournament, the West Point bunch traveled to the Aberdeen Tourney this past weekend, and they won both games there to claim first-place again.

The West Point Green Wave basketball team (8-7) gave up 92 points on Thursday night to Okolona to start the Aberdeen Tournament. In that game and the closing game of the tourney, the West Point boys scored more than 70 points, but they came away with a pair of loses, including Saturday night’s defeat to West Lowndes by a 83-77 score.
“We’re giving up way too many points,” said West Point head coach Brad Cox on Monday. “We’re giving up a lot of points during transition.”

The Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders (17-6; 5-0) had to stay in tournament mode for last weekend. While it’s not uncommon for the girls to play on Thursday and again on Friday, it isn’t very often the Lady Raiders have to play a third game on Saturday, especially a district match.
Oak Hill showed no worries though, as they rolled past Calhoun Academy 67-27 on Thursday night. They followed that performance up with a Friday night road win over district rival Carroll by a 54-19 score.
