The West Point Lady Green Wave defense put on a show on Friday night, giving the home crowd a second straight win here in West Point as they defeated Aberdeen 55-33.
Most of Aberdeenâ€™s scoring came in the last quarter, and by the time they were able to put some real points on the board, Kelsei Ewings and the Lady Wave had already mounted a sizable lead.
In the first quarter, West Point came out exploding on both sides of the ball. Ewings led the offense to 17 points in the first period, and the defense held Aberdeen to just five points.
In the second frame, West Point held the visiting girls to just five points again, and their eight points on offense gave them a 25-10 lead at half time.
Things did not get any better for Aberdeen in the third quarter. West Point would come out and put up 30 points over the final 16 minutes of play, all the while, holding the Aberdeen girls to just 23 points in the second half.
Ewings finished tops on the team in scoring with 20 points. Adrianna Billups and Nekeisha Walker both had eight points.
Alexandria Morgan scored seven points and Wilma Davis had four. Ashley Robertson scored three points in the game, and Taylor McCrary contributed a point in the win.
West Pointâ€™s Saturday action from the Noxubee Tournament will be featured in Tuesdayâ€™s paper. They will be back on the court again next Friday to take on district rival Saltillo, on the road.
