The West Point Green Wave (9-9; 2-1) basketball team was riding high after defeating the Oxford Chargers last Friday night at home. That district win made the team 2-0 at the time in league play.
On Tuesday night, however, the Green Wave had to travel to face the Trojans of New Hope. West Point forced an overtime quarter, but it was New Hope that eventually pulled out the 69-68 win over the Green Wave.
The Green Wave had a nine-point advantage at the half, but they allowed two dozen points to New Hope in the third period.

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (10-13; 3-3) have been playing a tough stretch of late. Wrapping up district play last Friday against Manchester, the boys started a series that includes four games in this week.
After falling to Starkville on the road on Saturday, the Raiders returned to the court on Monday night to take on the Hebron Christian Eagles. In that non-district match, the Raiders tipped in the winning shot in the final second of the game for one-point win.

A couple of weeks ago, the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders traveled to Heritage Academy and held the 6-foot-3, and heavily recruited, Rachel Hollivay to just 10 points. In the first two periods of Tuesday night’s rematch at Oak Hill, it looked like it was going to be another one of those nights for Hollivay.
The Lady Patriot came to life, however, in the second half of the game. It took all of regulation and one overtime period, but Heritage eventually outlasted the Lady Raiders 40-38.

Monday night was a battle between two district winners. Some of the best girls in single-A ball took to the court against some of the best in AAA hoops, and both teams were from right here in Clay County.
The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles (22-3; 10-0) and the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders (19-6; 6-0) both wrapped up their respective districts this weekend, with the two teams going undefeated in league play.

Last Friday night, Zach Bryan’s technical foul late in Oak Hill’s last district game at Manchester, might have been the difference in his team’s three-point loss to the Mavericks. On Monday night, the senior took a shot at redemption, tipping in the winning two-point shot at the buzzer for a 47-46 Raider win over the Hebron Christian Eagles.
As a team, Oak Hill struggled the final three quarters of the game to redeem themselves from a start that was nothing short of dismal against the visiting Eagles.

On Friday night, the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders finished off Manchester Academy for the second time this season to complete a perfect 6-0 record in district play this season. Starting on Saturday, the girls began a string of non-district games they are hoping will get them ready for the upcoming district tournament at Winston Academy.
The first of these non-league games resulted in a 55-45 loss to the Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers. Starkville has accounted for two of Oak Hill’s seven losses this season.

Tonight, the Green Wave will try to improve on a 2-0 district record, when they travel to New Hope to take on the Trojans, who are hovering right around the .500 mark themselves.

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (9-13; 3-3) finished up the district play on Friday night with a hard-fought performance against Manchester that resulted in an unfortunate loss for the Raiders. On Saturday, Oak Hill’s boys returned to the court against Starkville, falling again in the non-district game, 63-44.
The Raiders have guaranteed themselves the No. 2 seed at the district tournament, which will be at Winston. With the Starkville game and three home matches this week, the boys should have plenty of live-action under their belts before the tourney.

On Tuesday night, the West Point Green Wave (9-8; 2-0) came out flat against a fast Starkville High School basketball team. They fell behind early and could not make up ground before losing the non-district game.
On Friday, the Green Wave returned to the court, with a lot more on the line. Facing an Oxford team with a 2-0 district record, West Point could not afford to fall behind early.
They did just the opposite, dominating the Chargers in a 69-60 home victory.
