WINONA- Another 20-plus point performance Thursday night by Hebron Christianâ€™s Tori Nichols, helped the Lady Eagles secure their first district victory, 44-37 over Winona.
It also extended their winning streak to a season-best four games.
Head coach William Cotton said this type of momentum will surely help them heading into December as they get set to close out the first half of the year.
GRENADA â€“ A few first half mistakes by Oak Hill Academy didnâ€™t really play factor in Thursday nightâ€™s victory over Kirk.
Instead, it was 30-point second half performance by the Raiders that earned a 52-38 win.
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 â€“ 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.
â€śThey made some mistakes, we made some mistakes, but we didnâ€™t rebound the basketball and got beat on the offensive glass,â€ť he said. â€śOther 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.â€ť
