Lady Raiders unbeaten in district

January 16, 2012

Oak Hill once showed why defense is their bread and butter. They can shoot pretty good too.
Friday night, the Lady Raiders had one of their best defensive performances of the season with a 62-19 win over Canton. The victory moves them to 18-5 on the year, but more importantly 5-0 in MAIS District 2AA.
“I’ve tried to convince this bunch that that’s our identity,” head coach Stan Hughey said. “Our ability to guard people.”
In the two games prior, especially against Marshall, the girls were able to shut down the opponents top offensive weapon.

The Green Wave picked up their third win in four games Thursday, 85-62 over West Oktibbeha.
“Our defense has been getting better over the last few games,” he said. “Just the effort and intensity has been better and the guys are buying into that. They’re starting to see when you play defense well, we can get things in transition and open some things up.”
