Hawks sweep Tigers
By BARRY BURLESON
Holly Springs teams came through in the clutch Friday night.
The Hawks and Lady Hawks traveled to District 2-3A opponent Charleston and brought home 5- and 7-point victories, respectively.
Tyler Brown scored 17 of his 21 points in the second half as the Holly High boys turned back the Tigers 68-63. The Hawks improved to 6-1 in the district and 12-8 overall.
Adding 16 points each were DeAndre Finley and Marvin Burt. The Hawks hit seven threes, including three each from Brown and Finley.
They led 53-45 going into the fourth quarter.
“Treyvon Johnson had a momentum-changing, one-handed dunk off the wing in our full-court press,” coach Sylvester Kilgore said.
Also, Carlos Pool nailed a crucial pair of free throws with 10 seconds left, after making a steal.
DaVonte Smith and Burt had 10 rebounds each in the five-point win.
The high-flying Lady Hawks remained unbeaten in district play with a 47-40 victory at Charleston.
Starlandria Walton led the way with 16 points, six steals and seven rebounds. Lakendra Bell had 12 points, five steals and 10 rebounds. Ancharreca Crane added 10 points. Brandi Woodson grabbed seven rebounds. Kenyada Burns had seven points and was the assist leader with five.
The Lady Hawks led by just four to start the fourth frame. That’s when Walton and Burns scored 11 of the team’s final 15 points.
They improved to 7-0 in the district and 11-9 overall.
Holly High visited Independence Tuesday. They host M.S. Palmer Friday. Next Tuesday, Feb. 11, they go to Water Valley.
