HOUSTON – Ecurb Forest might not have been 100 percent, but the game’s spectators in the stands might not have realized it.
Forest, who’s battling a sore throat caused by tonsillitis, scored a game-high 19 points, catapulting West Point to an easy 64-47 victory over the Houston Hilltoppers Tuesday night at Houston High School.
“Ecurb was able to get into a rhythm knocking down 3-pointers,” West Point Head Coach Brad Cox said. “His teammates set him up with good looks, and once he got going they did a great job getting him the ball.”

And that game plan is exactly what the Lady Tigers have adhered to all season.
Idralien Williams, that 6-foot-4 center, scored 22 points and pulled down 21 rebounds as Noxubee remained perfect through 10 games with a 56-41 victory over the West Point Lady Wave Tuesday night at West Point High School.

Dason Thomas caught the inbound pass out of a West Point Green Wave timeout as the final 10 seconds rolled off the clock. The senior point guard waited for the play to develop against the Noxubee County Tigers’ defense.
It never did, but he saw another way to make something positive happen to break the deadlock. Thomas took the opportunity to drive toward the basket as he drew a foul, putting the Wave into the double bonus and Thomas at the free-throw line.
