Head Coach Brad Cox and his Green Wave basketball team traveled to Louisville to take on a very challenging Wildcat club.
In a tight affair, West Point had a difficult time finding a definitive lead until the end of the third quarter. The Green Waveâ€™s depth proved to be the key factor to their success as West Point closed out the game with a bang and a 73-55 victory.
â€śWe knew it would be an all four-quarter type game,â€ť commented Coach Cox after a strong road win, â€śit was a real physical game, and it is just great to beat Louisville here at their gym.â€ť
The Lady Wave were on the road again Friday night, this time West Point headed south to take on the Louisville Lady Wildcats.
Head Coach Kendall Pickens and his Lady Wave gave a good team effort to start the game, but fell victim to a stingy Louisville defense allowing the Lady Wildcats to romp over West Point 72-33.
Hebron Christian made the road trip to Columbus in hopes of bouncing back from a loss to Washington School on Tuesday and to complete the season sweep on Victory Christian, a team they defeated handily earlier in November.
In a Thursday night game where both teams were on fire from behind the three point arc and the floor, the Eagles found themselves behind the eight ball heading into the fourth quarter. A scrappy comeback though saw Hebron fight back into contention, but run out of time as Victory went on to win 69-65.
The Lady Eagles of Hebron made the short journey over to Columbus to face Victory Christian. Back in November, the Lady Eagles hosted Victory in Pheba and were defeated on a buzzer-beating three pointer, 39-38. This time around it was major foul trouble which hampered Hebron Christian as Victory Christian pulled away in the fourth quarter, winning 53-43.
â€śI thought we played well enough to win tonight,â€ť said Head Coach William Cotton, â€śit is just hard to win on an opponentâ€™s court sometimes.â€ť
