|Ouachita winning all over the south|
The Ouachita Lions and Lady Lions are enjoying success abroad these days. The boys won a pair of games at the Sunkist Shootout in Lafayette this week while the Lady Lions split a pair of games in Texas.
Head coach Casey Jones and the Lions (18-3) participated in the Sunkist Shootout hosted by Saint Thomas More of Lafayette recently.
The Lions opened the tournament with a convincing win over local powerhouse Carencro, 80-63, on Friday night.
Nick Haywood and Jeremy Mitchell each scored in double-digits for the Lions as they cruised by the Bears.
The second day of the tournament saw Ouachita crush last year's Class 4A runner-up, O.P. Walker by a score of 78-59. Haywood, Mitchell and Antonio Landers led the way for a Ouachita team sporting four players in double-figures against Walker.
"We had a lot of different guys step up and make plays," Ouachita head coach Casey Jones said. "We played a lot of young guys in this tournament and need to improve our depth."
The depth issue was apparent later in the tournament as Ouachita lost back-to-back games for the first time this season.
Saint Thomas Aquinas downed the Lions by a score of 67-63 Monday morning. Turnovers and foul trouble hampered the Lions and allowed STA to come away with the victory.
Many defeated the Lions 64-57 to give Ouachita the fourth-place finish in the tournament. Ouachita went to toe-to-toe with the Class 2A juggernaut most of the night until fouls mounted up and Many converted on their charity-stripe opportunities down the stretch.
Ouachita will take time off this weekend in preparation for the Annual Don Redden Memorial Classic they will host from Jan. 7-9. The Lions will host Pineville as part of a double-header with the girl's squad Friday night.
Twelve teams will participate in the three-day tournament including: West Monroe, Rayville, Ouachita, Richwood, Carroll, Wossman, Jonesboro-Hodge, Alexandria Senior High School, Central of Baton Rouge, Madison, Neville and Delhi.
In girls' action, Lady Lions head coach John Merrit has take his team deep into the heart of Texas for the Sand Meadows Classic in Duncanville, Texas.
The Lady Lions split a pair of games in the prestigious 32-team tournament on Monday evening.
Ouachita (12-7) defeated Rowlett, Texas, by a score of 63-39 Monday in the morning session.
Mariah Brown was unstoppable for Ouachita. The senior guard scored a team-high 27 points along with 10 rebounds, three assists and four steals.
"We are getting some great competition that will prepare us for a tough district schedule," head coach John Merritt said. "Mariah (Brown) has been a leader and has done some of everything for our team so far this season."
Brown is listed as one of the top 50 juniors in the nation by ESPN basketball analysts and is expected to be highly recruited throughout the rest of her high school career.
Bishop Lynch High School of Dallas downed Ouachita in the nightcap with a 52-40 setback for the Lady Lions.
Brown again led the Ouachita team in scoring with 19 points and 10 rebounds for her second straight double-double of the tournament.
The Lady Lions will return to action after the Sand Meadows Classic on Jan. 2 when they host the Pineville Lady Rebels at 6 p.m.
