|WM continus district play at home|
Both basketball squads from West Monroe High School will be at home this Friday night as they continue district 1-5A play within the friendly confines of Rebel Gymnasium.
On Tuesday night the Rebels picked up another critical district victory with a 55-41 win over the Natchitoches Central Chiefs.
Corey Lacey led the way for West Monroe (19-5, 1-0) with 14 points in the victory. Freshman Tony Foster scored 13 points while D.D. Brown chipped in 11 for the Rebels.
Foster has come on strong for the Rebels lately as he continues to grow as a player at the varsity level.
"Tony handles the basketball real well," West Monroe head coach Bakari Beckwith said. "He has started for us back at the beginning of the season before some of the football guys joined the team. I just thought right now he needed more time to mature and get experience and he has come off the bench and given us a real spark."
The Rebels tangle with the Ruston Bearcats on Friday night in West Monroe. Ruston lost at Ouachita on Tuesday night and will be fired up to play the Rebels, one of their biggest rivals on the court.
"We have to be able to handle their defensive pressure," Beckwith said. "That is a real key for us. Also, we need to continue to shoot the ball with confidence."
On the ladies side, West Monroe dominated from the opening tip in a 64-57 win over the Lady Chiefs.
Kassietta Brown led the way again for West Monroe with a game-high 20 points. Jasmine Jones scored 17 points while Jessica Lathan also scored in double-figures with 10 points.
"We started real strong," West Monroe head coach John Green said. "Our goal was to beat their full court press and we got some big defensive stops in the first half. We came through in the fourth quarter."
West Monroe built a large lead before Natchitoches Central made a run by stringing together a slew of points in the third period.
West Monroe clamped down in the final quarter to secure another big district victory. The Lady Rebels will host Ruston on Friday night at 6 p.m.
West Monroe defeated Ruston on the road two weeks ago, but Ruston has caught fire as of late and is coming in after a win at Ouachita on Tuesday night.
"We have to put the win behind us," Green said. "And we have to prepare to move the ball and score. Ruston is coming off a big win and we know they will be ready to go."
