|WM steps out of district play this week|
The West Monroe Rebels defeated the Carroll Bulldogs 59-45 at home Tuesday as the two teams got a fiercely competitive game under their belts before going into district play next week.
Urald King scored 21 points to lead the Rebels (17-5) while Corey Lacey added 16 pints and D.D. Brown chipped in 11 points.
Carroll is going through a youth movement this season after graduating seven seniors off of a Top 28 participating squad last year.
Xavier Lee scored 17 points to lead Carroll. Lee is averaging nearly 20 points per game this season with a career-high 25 points in the Don Redden Memorial Classic at Ouachita last week.
The game marked the beginning of what coaches hope is a resurgence for the team after blowing a 21-point second half lead and losing at No.1-ranked Huntington High School last Friday.
Jacobee Lee tipped back a missed free throw with seconds remaining to give Huntington the 66-64 victory in Shreveport last week.
"Huntington is an experienced team and they made it to the top 28 last season," West Monroe head coach Bakari Beckwith said. "It was a physical game. Our guards have to play smart and grow up in a hurry. This game will definitely help us when the playoffs roll around.
The Rebels have no rest for the weary as they go to Many High School for the Hall of Fame Classic this Saturday afternoon.
Reserve Christian, the three-time defending Class C state champions, is on the docket for the Rebels in another classic match-up aimed at getting the team ready for the Class 5A playoffs.
"Reserve has won numerous titles," Beckwith said. "They are not your typical Class C team and we will have to rebound better and play hard in another real good game we expect."
The Lady Rebels lost to Carroll on the same floor Tuesday night by a score of 68-50. Elexar Tuglar scored 22 points to lead Carroll, the No. 2 ranked team in Class 4A this week.
Kassietta Brown scored 25 points and Ashlie Lewis added 11 points for the Lady Rebels. Carroll was tough defensively and crashed the boards on their way to a dominating win.
"We have to get better this week at rebounding," West Monroe head coach John Green said. "The difference against Carroll was simply rebounding. We did not do a good job in that game."
The Lady Rebels will have extra practice days this week because of not playing this weekend. Tuesday night begins district play for West Monroe at the Ruston Lady Bearcats.
