|West Monroe opens district play|
The West Monroe Rebels opened district play with a 53-37 victory over the Airline Vikings Tuesday night.
D.D. Brown scored 17 points to lead the way for West Monroe (17-4). Chucky Glass added 10 points while Corey Lacey nearly matched Brown in the scorebook with 16 points of his own.
Airline (15-10) led 10-7 after the first quarter by which time the defensive pressure from the Rebels began to take its toll on the young Vikings squad.
Rodney Hill led Airline with nine points in the loss. The win puts West Monroe back in the win column after seeing Ouachita snap their 11-game win streak on Saturday.
West Monroe lost to Ouachita in the championship game of the Don Redden Memorial Classic held at Ouachita over the weekend.
Brown has scored in double-figures for the past week, as he also scored 17 points in the loss to Ouachita.
West Monroe, No. 6 in this week's Class 5A rankings, beat Carroll in the first round of the tournament 58-40.
Brown and Glass led the way with 16 points and 14 points respectively. West Monroe upended Richwood to reach the championship game against Ouachita.
Corey Lacey torched the nets for 20 points against Richwood. Glass added 10 for West Monroe.
West Monroe will visit Huntington, the No. 1 ranked team in Class 5A, on Friday. It has been nearly two years since the Rebels defeated Huntington on their home floor and the game gives the team a chance to keep pace with the top teams in the district race with about a month left in the regular season.
The Lady Rebels took Tuesday off after hosting the Hall of Fame Classic at Fant-Ewing Coliseum on the campus of the University of Louisiana-Monroe.
In the first of what is expected to become an annual event, the top team in Class 4A, St. Michael's of Baton Rouge, handed West Monroe a 67-44 defeat.
Kassietta Brown scored 15 points as West Monroe could not get any offensive consistency against the defending state champions.
"We have to go back to the drawing board and figure some things out," West Monroe head coach John Green said. "We have some stuff to work on after playing a great basketball team. Overall I think the entire event was great and this was something we wanted to do to give teams a chance to play in that arena. We want to get back there."
ULM will be the site of all of the girl's Top 28 tournament action in March when teams play for state championships in all classifications.
The Ouachita Lady Lions were the other local team on display in the Hall Of Fame Classic. The Lady Lions defeated Vanderbilt Catholic 42-38 in a tightly contested game.
Mariah Brown scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds to pace Ouachita. The Lady Lions made really big defensive stops late in the game to secure the victory before heading into district play next week.
Ouachita will host Iota of Class 3A this Friday night in the final non-district game of the season for coach John Merrit and Co.
