Richwood boys roll past Springhill
The Richwood Rams (8-7) demolished the Springhill Tigers on Tuesday night, 98-20. Marcies Davis and Anthony Abraham led the way for the Rams who are the defending Class 3A state champions after besting Vidalia in the title game last spring.
Richwood is young but has won some games against good competition so far this season. The Rams will play this weekend in the Don Redden Tournament at Ouachita High School .
West Monroe Lady Rebels pick up win
The West Monroe Lady Rebels (11-13) downed their former district rivals from Ruston 46-42 on Tuesday night. Guard Donnaleisha James led WMHS with 14 points while Rochelle Wilson added 10 points for the Lady Rebels and Alex Belton scored 10.
Ruston (15-9) was baffled by a tough West Monroe defense in the fourth quarter and second half free throw shooting was a big help for the Lady Rebels as well.
Alaina Allen and Brianna Curry led Ruston with 10 points apiece while Chelsea Rogers scored nine points.
Neville girls get past Calvary
The Neville Lady Tigers roared past Class 2A foe Calvary Baptist in Shreveport on Tuesday night, 57-48. Xzandra Dowd scored 17 points to lead the Lady Tigers. The Lady Tigers have been playing impressive defense as of late. They were excellent in that area after making some halftime adjustments in time to hold down the Lady Cavaliers in the second half. Neville will take on the West Ouachita Lady Chiefs to begin district 3-4A competition next week.
Richwood Lady Rams down Alexandria
The Richwood Lady Rams cruised to one of their easiest victories of the young basketball season as they downed Alexandria Senior High School 61-10 Tuesday night. Dakena Potter and Reginia Scott led the way for the Lady Rams.
Richwood got easy transition baskets following turnovers caused by their great defensive efforts against the heavily overpowered Lady Trojans.
Sophomore sensation Veanca Hall came off the bench to give the Lady Rams a spark and keep the momentum in their favor whenever the starters began to lose any steam.
OCS squad tripped by familiar foe
The Ouachita Christian School Eagles (5-15) let a fourth quarter lead slip away in a 68-66 loss to the Mangham Dragons.
The two former district rivals renewed their rivalry in grand fashion as they traded baskets in the first quarter. A Zach Tarver basket gave OCS the lead at the end of the first quarter 16-14. Mangham battled back and matched the Eagles basket-for-basket as OCS lead by just one at the break.
The Eagles had their best quarter of the entire game in the third when they built a five-point lead going into the final period of play.
Mangham then held OCS to just 40 percent shooting in the final half, while shooting 53.3 percent themselves to get out of town with a victory. Colby Webb led OCS with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Zach Tarver added 17 points and a game-high 13 rebounds for OCS.
Montrel Hardman led Mangham with 20 points and Jonathan Harris added 17 points for the Dragons.
The two teams split a pair of games last season and both made the playoffs in their respective classifications. While some coaches believe district 2-1A is the weakest district in that classification, OCS will still have a good chance of making the playoffs if they finish in the either first or second-place this season.
