Martin wins first in all-star shooting
By BARRY BURLESON
The highlight of Justice Martin’s all-star experience last week actually came the night before the game itself.
The H.W. Byers player won the girls three-point shooting contest on Tuesday, July 10.
“It’s a huge accomplishment,” said Jason Thompson, head coach of the Lady Lions, “and it wasn’t even close. She won it in grand style. She got in a groove and was stroking it pretty good.”
Martin, who will be a senior, called her three-point shooting title “a big honor.”
“I really enjoyed it,” she said.
The next night, July 11, Martin and her fellow North stars beat the South 74-62 in the Mississippi Association of Coaches All--Star basketball game played at Mississippi College in Clinton.
Thompson said Martin played sparingly in the game and scored four points, two off a steal and two more off a rebound.
“Overall, she did well,” Thompson said. “She did not get ample opportunity to be successful (in the game). She worked hard when she was in there and earned her points.”
