|Carroll crushes Neville; Lady Tigers, Bulldogs begin playoffs|
The Carroll Bulldogs took a bite out of the Neville Tigers Tuesday night with a 77-49 victory at "The Pound."
Carroll pressed the Tigers into submission as Xavier Lee led the way on offense with 22 points and seven rebounds.
Neville never got its offense clicking with Carroll controlling the paint with their size and speed.
"We had too many stupid mistakes," Neville head coach Phillip Craig said. "We had far too many turnovers and never really got into the flow of the game."
Carroll led by eight after the opening quarter, 19-11. They extended the lead each quarter and never let Neville get any closer.
Artez Bynum scored 18 points for Neville, a team which now must wait to see if it will make the playoffs.
"We needed this game to be in the playoffs," Craig said. "Now it is just wait and see if we did enough to get in."
The new power point system has coaches rethinking their scheduling philosophy as it is harder to get teams in lower classes to play high class teams with no power point incentives.
"Now the tough thing is if we do get in it will be a road game against a real good team," Craig said. "I do think the new system is better than what we did in the past with the set bracket."
The Neville Lady Tigers will travel to Green Oaks on Thursday night. Neville won a second-place tie-breaker against Bastrop Saturday night as well.
Carroll will play Wossman Tuesday night as part of a triple-header put on by the city of Monroe inside the Civic Center. Rayville and Ruston will meet at 5 p.m. with West Monroe and Madison Parish playing at 6:30 p.m.
Wossman and Carroll will be the night-cap at 8 p.m. in a heated rivalry game in front of what is expected to be a large crowd.
"We are looking forward to playing a good team in a big environment," Carroll head coach Jesse Burnette said. "We wanted our kids to play at a big arena before the playoffs began."
Carroll is the No.2 seed in Class 4A and will host Broadmoor High School of Baton Rouge this week.
