Stan Hugheyâ€™s squad continued their winning ways this past weekend with two convincing wins over Canton Academy and North Delta. The Lady Raiders beat the Lady Panthers 58-22 and the Lady Green Wave 46-34.
Tori Nichols towered over many of her opponents at a dominant 6â€™3â€ť during her time at Hebron Christian, not only height-wise, but talent-wise. Last year, Nichols and her fellow Lady Eagles made a deep run into the MAIS postseason and made it to the State All-Around in Clinton before being eliminated.
Sometimes it takes a little luck when it comes to winning basketball games. After winning three of their previous four games, the Raiders dropped two contests over the weekend in a 48-53 home loss to Canton and 47-56 on the road to North Delta, continuing Oak Hillâ€™s streak of very close losses. The second loss to the Panthers will place the Raiders in the third seed of the district tournament to face Winston in a go-home game.
