When the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (9-12; 3-2) have been on this season, it’s been really hard to stop them. Take last week’s non-district game against Calhoun where they won 54-42, a game Oak Hill was in control of from the start.
The next night, however, they fell at the buzzer to district rival Carroll, on the road.
With not boys Winston team, the Raiders were forced to sit out Saturday, and they returned to the court on Monday night at Heritage. Oak Hill fell to the hosting Raiders 52-39.

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.

There is still time to get kids signed up for the city’s youth basketball league, but time is running out fast.
Tomorrow will be the final day kids can be added.
The Parks and Recreation Department extended the deadline, which was originally December 30, giving locals more time to sign up.
With the hard economic times still upon most, and Christmas just past, Parks Director James Crowley said that they took the measure to alleviate some of that pressure.

Youth hoops deadline looms

January 12, 2011

Due to the Christmas Holidays and the harsh economic times, the city took steps last month to try and give parents a little more time to get their kids involved in the city’s youth basketball league that will start next month.
The original sign-up deadline, slated for December 30, was moved back to January 15.
That means that Saturday will be the final day to sign kids up for participation in the league.
The season was originally scheduled to start on Monday, but that date will likely be pushed back as well.

The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles were among many Mississippi basketball teams that were not able to improve on their district records earlier this week.
With a heavy winter storm’s snow and ice still on the roads on Monday and Tuesday, the Lady Eagles missed bouts with Winona and Calhoun.
On Thursday night, however, the girls should have any trouble getting down to Macon to take on another district rival in Central Academy.
The Hebron girls have already played and defeated the Lady Vikings once this season, back on December 2.
