West Point sweeps Whippets

November 14, 2011

KOSCIUSKO – First year head girls basketball coach Murray Woody is pleased with his 2-2 record so far season. After playing their fourth game in eight days Saturday, the girls notched another victory, 57-45 over Kosciusko.

Woody talked about before the game how important it was for the girls to execute, they did that early and often. Each team had a dozen in the slow paced first quarter, but with the Lady Whippets playing in zone, Woody quickly pulled them out to build up a lead.

Head coach William Cotton says the girls are coming around and looking like they should, a playoff ball club.

“Our shooting percentage was up tonight, that’s what we need to have every night,” he said. “But there’s still room to improve.”

“This is the playoffs, you better step it up or you’re going home,” he said. “What else do you say?”

The boys heard it loud and clear.

November 11, 2011

TUPLEO – Arrington Lenoir and Daryl Thomas combined for 49 points Thursday night, but after four periods of play, West Point just didn’t have enough in the tank as the Green Wave lost in OT to the Tupelo Golden Wave 82-76 in day two of the Tupelo Tip-Off Classic.

West Point had an eight point lead heading into the fourth quarter, before Tupelo began chipping away, and eventually cutting the deficit 67-65 with less than two minutes to play. Antonio Green sank five points including a pair of free-throws with 10 ticks left to play.

Fans knew it was a good sign as the Raiders rolled out 20 points in the first quarter on their way to the first win of the season, 54-42 over Kirk Academy.

Jones finished 4-of-4 from behind the arch in the first quarter as the Raiders scored 14 unanswered points to take control 20-6 after the first intermission. Brian Middleton said he was a little surprised by the fast start.

For a few minutes late in the fourth quarter, Oak Hill girls basketball coach Stan Hughey got a little nervous. He watched as the Lady Raiders, who led 36-24 heading into the final period, allowed Kirk to comeback and send it into overtime.

Five points in the last minute of OT by the Lady Raiders, including the go ahead jumper by Maegen Ellis, gave Oak Hill the victory, 47-45 in their home debut.

November 9, 2011

In what head coach Tri Nason described as a complete opposite performance from Monday’s season opening victory, the Eagles moved to 2-0 with a commanding 56-26 victory over Winston.

‘I was really happy that they came out and scored early the way they did,” Nason said. “I think the more we play and get used to what we do, it will just prepare us better for down the road.”

MERIDIAN - With seconds remaining on the clock, and Oak Hill with a one point lead, Lamar hit a 22-footer at the buzzer to steal the win right out of the Raiders hands, 68-66 in the season opener on the road.

“They broke our hearts there at the end,” head coach Brian Middleton said. “Some things you have to learn.”

With five seconds remaining, Oak Hill had the lead 66-65. Lamar called a timeout to regroup.

“We had it well defended,” Middleton said. “We just didn’t get the stop when we needed it.”

West Point tops Houston, 57-36 - Woody gets first win as girls head coach

November 8, 2011

West Point looked in sync for three out of four quarters Tuesday night.

Apart from the forth quarter where several starters sat out and the game already in hand, the Green Wave girls basketball notched their first win of the season, 57-36.

“We did a better job of executing tonight,” first year head coach Murray Woody said. “Our guards did a good job of getting others the ball and opening up some opportunities for them. We still have a little work to do as far as breaking presses and traps, but overall, we looked better than we did Saturday.”
