No one has been scoring off the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders (18-6; 5-0) lately. The Heritage Academy girls were no exception on Monday night, as they fell while hosting Oak Hill 52-33.
“We played really hard and really smart,” said Oak Hill head coach Stan Hughey.
Heritage’s top player, Rachel Hollivay, was shut down by the Oak Hill defense that allowed the college recruit just 10 points on the night.

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.

“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.
