Something had to give on Friday night. The West Point Lady Green Wave hoops team and the Lady Chargers of Oxford both came into the game with only two losses on the season.
West Point had a 13-game winning streak on the line, and they needed a big win in just their second district match to take over first place in the division.
The streak would not be extended and the Lady Wave experienced their first district loss of the season, falling to a tough Oxford team 72-57.

The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles (21-2; 9-0) could not dominate the Lady Rams of Immanuel, as they have others this season, on Thursday night. Hebron, however, did outlast Immanuel, claiming the district win by a 46-34 final.
Nearly four and half minutes ticked off the clock in the first period of the gam before either team was able to sink a basket. With 3:32 left on the ticker, Tori Nichols finally put in the first two points of the game on a lay-up.

The entire night was a shootout between the two division rivals. Immanuel jumped on top with a quick two-point shot to start the night, but Will Corbin Rogers quickly answered that with two of his own.
Taylor Coggins added two more points for the Eagles to answer a shot from the Rams to make it 4-4.

It’s going to be a battle between two greats in 5A girls basketball tonight, and it’s going to be right here in West Point. The Lady Wave (14-2; 1-0) and the Lady Chargers of Oxford High School (16-2; 2-0) are going head to head for first place in the district.
Both teams enter tonight’s play with just two losses. The West Point girls have played only one district game, a win over Saltillo on December 17. The Lady Chargers have taken care of Saltillo and New Hope to stand alone on top of the district standings.

There is a lot on the line for the West Point Green Wave (8-8; 1-0) basketball team tonight.
Hosting the first-place Oxford Chargers, West Point needs this district win to propel them into the No. 1 spot as the team gets ready for an impending playoff scenario in two weeks.
“Last year, we finished second,” said West Point head coach Brad Cox. “In our division, there’s not a lot of difference between the second and third place teams. You definitely want to go in there facing the No. 4 seeded team.”

Make it 13 in a row for the West Point Lady Green Wave (14-2; 1-0). On Tuesday night, the girls hosted the Lady Yellowjackets of Starkville High School, and though Starkville made a push in the second half, West Point held on to win the non-district game 55-46.
Starkville jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but Adrianna Billups quickly tied things up with a lay-up. Wilma Davis followed with a two-point shot.

In the two games the West Point boys lost in at the Aberdeen Tournament last weekend, they were down early, but came back playing hard in the second half. Both times the early deficits run up by Okolona and West Lowndes were too great to overcome.
On Tuesday night, the 8-8 Green Wave repeated that trend, falling behind by a large number of points to the Yellowjackets of Starkville, only to surge back in the second half, and fall in the end 71-54.

Almost a month later, the Green Wave program is not only looking to reacquainting itself with the home floor, but the two teams are looking to play some important district games.
The boys and the girls have a 1-0 record in district play, defeating Saltillo on December 17.
