|Ouachita keeps winning, tournament action ahead|
The Ouachita Lions and Lady Lions kept up with their winning ways at Madison Parish High School on Tuesday.
The Lions overcame a furious start by Madison behind a vicious home crowd to pull away in a 72-58 victory on the road.
Nick Haywood led all scorers with 25 points and was aided by 19 points scored by fellow senior guard Jeremy Mitchell.
"There crowd was really excited," head coach Casey Jones said. "Our defensive pressure took its toll in the second half. Nick (Haywood) had a big game again for us."
The game was a tune-up of sorts for this week's Don Redden Memorial Tournament hosted by the Lions.
Twelve teams will participate in the three-day event to honor the former Ouachita and LSU stand-out who died of a heart condition in 1988. This is the 18th year of the event.
"We think this is the premier tournament in the area every year," Jones said. "It is so special because the (Redden) family attends just about every game each night."
The Lady Lions also found a way to win in the game at Madison on Tuesday night. Zikki Davis drove the lane and hit a buzzer-beater shot to down Madison 63-61 and continue to December momentum picked up by Ouachita into the new year.
Junior guard Mariah Brown again led the way for Ouachita with 19 points and seven rebounds.
"We played tough defensively," Ouachita head coach John Merritt said. "When we needed the big basket we found the open player and made a play."
Ouachita will host defending 5a champions Southwood at 6 p.m. Friday at Ouachita Junior High School while the Don Redden Tournament takes up the main gym at Ouachita High School.
On Saturday, the Lady Lions will be one of two area schools to play in the Hall of Fame Classic at Fant-Ewing Coliseium at ULM.
Ouachita will play Saturday against Vanderbilt Catholic at 3 p.m. The Lady Lions will be the second of four games on Saturday.
Ruston will play Fair View at 1 p.m. to begin the action. Natchitoches Central and Pontchatoula will play at 4:30.
The West Monroe Lady Rebels will play Saint Michael of Baton Rouge in the last game, set to begin around 6 p.m.
