|WM teams play at home Friday|
Both basketball squads from West Monroe High School will be at home this Friday night with different opponents on the docket.
On the boy's side, West Monroe (17-5) will put their No. 6 Class 5A ranking on the line when they host Catholic High School of New Iberia.
West Monroe has had a week to prepare after losing last Saturday in Many at the Hall of Fame Classic.
Three-time defending Class C state champion Reserve Christian upended the Rebels in that tournament, 78-74.
Urald King scored a game-high 21 points for the Rebels. Chucky Glass added 20 points, while D.D. Brown chipped in 13 points and Corey Lacey 10 points to round out double-digit scorers for West Monroe.
"I think it was a real good game," West Monroe coach Bakari Beckwtih said. "Reserve did not miss any free throws and we missed 10. That was a huge factor in the outcome and something we have to improve upon."
West Monroe played the game without Barkavious Mingo who was on a football recruiting trip.
The Rebels are also playing with Dominique Ford who injured his MCL last week. Ford is scheduled to have an MRI on his knee Wednesday before the Rebels will know how much longer he will be missed on the court.
"I was proud of our effort and our intensity Saturday," Beckwith said. "We have to have that same intensity and effort every time out since we are playing a little short handed right now."
Catholic presents a big problem in the match-up because of their willingness to slow the game down and use a methodical offense. West Monroe has worked this week on perfecting their defensive sets.
"This will be a change of pace for us," Beckwith said. "Catholic slows the game down and will challenge us to be real disciplined defensively."
The Lady Rebels began district play Tuesday night by winning at Ruston, 55-38.
Kassietta Brown scored a game-high 17 points to lead West Monroe. Jessica Lathan added 15 points for the Lady Rebels.
Ouachita comes to West Monroe to face the Lady Rebels this Friday. The 6 p.m. contest could not be anymore important for either local squad.
"It is always important and special when we play Ouachita," West Monroe head coach John Green said. "We have to be prepared to handle their defense because they are very fundamentally sound."
