|West Monroe teams enjoy victories|
Both basketball squads from West Monroe High School took victories on Tuesday night as the Rebels beat Southwood on the road while the Lady Rebels upended the Neville Lady Tigers in West Monroe.
The West Monroe boys team decimated Southwood 61-39 behind a season-high 17 points by D.D. Brown.
"We have been playing real good basketball," West Monroe head coach Bakari Beckwith said. "We have to continue to fight to get better each time out on the court."
West Monroe set the pace early as they raced out to a 19-4 lead in the first quarter. West Monroe pounded the ball inside and got a plethora of turnovers to rattle the Cowboys offense.
West Monroe would never look back after a 40-19 halftime advantage propelled them to victory. Ural King scored 15 points and Corey Lacy finished with 11 points as the other Rebels scoring in double-figures.
West Monroe will be one of several teams playing in the Don Redden Memorial Classic at Ouachita on Friday. The tournament is considered the premier tournament in the area each year and will serve as a homecoming of sorts for head coach Bakri Beckwith.
Beckwith was an assistant coach for seven years at Ouachita before being named the head coach at West Monroe before this season.
The Lady Rebels are riding a four-game winning streak, including a Tuesday victory against Neville, 63-45. Jasmine Jones and Ashley Lewis each scored 17 points in the contest. Kassietta Brown added 16 points for the Lady Rebels.
The Neville Lady Tigers were led in scoring by Xandra Dowd who was the game's high-scorer with 24 points on the night.
The win takes the Lady Rebels into the weekend, when they will host the Hall of Fame Classic at ULM's Fant-Ewing Colisieum.
In the tournament, West Monroe will be joined by Ouachita, Ruston and Natchitoches Central from district 2-5A in the one-day event on Saturday.
Saint Michael, the defending Class 4A state champion, will come up from Baton Rouge to battle West Monroe in the night-cap at 6 p.m.
Ouachita will play at 3:30 against another south Louisiana powerhouse, Vanderbilt Catholic.
"We wanted to put this tournament together," West Monroe head coach John Green said. "With the Top 28 being back in Monroe this year, we wanted to not be one of the only places a Hall of Fame classic was not going on."
Other cities such as Baton Rouge also will host Hall of Fame Classic tournaments this year as they have for many years in the past. This will be the first event in Ouachita Parish.
The girls playing in the tournament will hope to return for the state championship games in each classification to be held at ULM in March.
