Class A State Tournament
Big wins in big games generally lead to bigger games down big roads to the Big House.
This was the much anticipated plight of the H.W. Byers Lady Lions. And it ultimately ended in an enjoyable plight.
The Lady Lions had won back-to-back championships in ’08 and ’09 and were eliminated by eventual state champion McAdams last year.
Patriots finish in overall final four
Marshall Academy, coming off a Class AA state championship, could not knock off the giant of private school basketball in the state.
The Patriots’ excellent season came to an end Friday night at Mississippi College in the semi-finals of the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools Overall Tournament. They lost 75-51 to Class AAA state champion Madison Ridgeland Academy.
March is already upon us and the “madness” is not very far behind. As in collegiate football, the basketball teams are desperately jockeying for that final positioning in efforts to make the playoffs and beyond. There have been some tumbles from the top of the ladder’s rung and there have been some recoveries.
