|Neville heads to Bastrop for key district contest|
The Neville Tigers will try to overcome a heartbreaking 85-61 loss at Franklin Parish when they travel to Bastrop on Friday.
Franklin Parish used their speed and aggressive play to jump out to an early advantage. Foul trouble set in very early for the Tigers and Franklin Parish would go on to shoot 40 free throws before the end of the game.
The loss took the Tigers out of the district lead.
"We are struggling with playing with confidence right now," Neville head coach Phillp Craig said. "Franklin just jumped on us from the get-go and we could not recover."
Delarrious Jones led the way for Neville with 22 points in his best game of the district season. Another sophomore, Ronnie Moran, added 12 points for the Tigers.
The Patriots led 41-19 at halftime behind J.C. Winn and Brandon Sims shooting lights out in front of a raucous home crowd in Winnsboro.
Neville continued to find themselves in foul trouble after intermission and the free-throw parade by Franklin Parish never allowed the Tigers to get any closer than 20 points in the second half.
"The bright spot there was the play of our sophomores," Craig said. "We are young and not playing with confidence right now, but we are fighting to not make any excuses and just keep working to get better each game."
The chance for improvement and keeping pace in the district standings with Franklin Parish comes this Friday at Bastrop.
"Bastrop has not been winning but they are a dangerous team that really is playing good basketball," Craig said. "It is really important that we continue to work hard and figure out ways to win these district games as we get closer to playoff time."
Both Neville teams will be in action beginning with a girl's game at 6 p.m. The Lady Tigers defeated Bastrop 55-50 when they met in Monroe on Jan. 20. The Tigers also beat Bastrop that night, 49-44 in a thriller.
