MACON â€” West Point did not have an ample time to celebrate its tight, hard-fought 74-66 victory over a talented Tupelo Golden Wave team on Friday night.
The Green Wave (10-1) made a quick 16-hour turnaround and 32-mile trip south to Noxubee County High School as they defeated the Quitman Panthers, 72-49, Saturday at the Coleman-Triplett Classic.
â€śQuitman was a big, athletic team,â€ť West Point Head Coach Brad Cox said. â€śWe were able to take their defensive pressure and make it an advantage for us.
â€śWe talked before the game that you have to be able to play back-to-back and play well,â€ť Cox added. â€śWe had to play more guys today, and the players that came off the bench did well. We had no problem from our bench.â€ť
