January 7-12 Report

January 7-12 Report

The stats listed are unofficial but are close to what the players accomplished on the court (mostly because I run my mouth too much and don’t pay the closest attention the entire game).

This report will cover the following games (10) or events: North Panola at Coahoma Early College, Prentiss County Tournament (Baldwyn, Booneville, New Site, Wheeler, Jumpertown) and the Philadelphia Invitational Tournament (Leake Central, Pisgah, Philadelphia, McAdams).

North Panola vs Coahoma Early College

From Coahoma Early College

Clarksdale, MS

(G) Coahoma Early College Lady Tigers 8-7 (3A Clarksdale, MS) 64

MS #158 3A #24

North Panola Lady Cougars 2-9 (3A Sardis, MS) 50

MS #220 3A #38

Notes: Nekyra Pittman (5-10 ’20 F Coahoma Early College) was steady with her rebounding getting at least 3 in every quarter on her way to a double-double. Her rebounds were also timely rebounds that either started spurts or stopped the spurts. Za’Rihha Green (5-7 ’20 G/F Coahoma Early College) helped to steal the win and that’s what she really did. She ended the game with 10 steals with 7 coming in the fourth quarter. Shandariun Clark (’19 G North Panola) had a very solid game in the losing effort.

Prentiss County Tournament

Semifinals

From Jumpertown, HS

Booneville, MS

(G) Baldwyn Lady Bearcats 8-6 (2A Baldwyn, MS) 65

MS #84 2A #10

Booneville Lady Blue Devils 7-7 (3A Booneville, MS) 59

MS #121 2A #14

Notes: Baldwyn jumped out to a big lead but you can never count a Michael Smith coached team out. Booneville fought back with heart and determination. Baldwyn has several really nice guards in I’Yana Ragin (5-4 ’21 G Baldwyn), Keeley Wade (5-4 ’19 PG Baldwyn) and Amarie Anderson (5-3 ’20 PG Baldwyn). All three shoot it well, can handle and you really have to pick your poison when trying to defend them. La’Embri McGaha (5-6 ’21 G/F Baldwyn) played solid down low. She was a killer on the boards. Kinsley Murphy (5-4 ’19 G Booneville) helped Booneville fight back into the game with her shooting and smart play handling the ball.

(B) Baldwyn Bearcats 17-2 (2A Baldwyn, MS) 73

MS #45 2A #3

New Site Royals 16-6 (2A New Site, MS) 59

MS #85 2A #8

Notes: This was a very fun and intense game. Kobe Williams (6-2 ’20 G Baldwyn) played big putting up a 21-10 performance. Riley Hoard (6-4 ’20 F/C Baldwyn) connected on a monster put-back slam for the play of the game. Ethan Carmichael (5-10 ’19 G Baldwyn) had a game high 7 dimes in the winning effort. Gabe Richardson (5-10 ’20 G Baldwyn) and Williams are perfect for creating shots or getting into the lane and making plays happen. Jaden Ward (5-10 ’20 G Baldwyn) provides high energy and defensive effort. As for New Site, Walker Moreland (5-11 ’20 SG New Site) had one of the worst shooting performances I’ve ever seen him have. Yeah he still dropped 28 with 5 three’s and was perfect at the free-throw line on 9 attempts. You can not stop him from scoring, just try and slow him down. Carson Fitzsimmons (5-11 ’20 G/F New Site) and Dalton Pounds (6-4 ’21 F/C New Site) both had solid efforts. Chandler Johnson (6-2 ’20 G New Site) brought good energy off the bench for the Royals.

MS #35 2A #3

Jumpertown Lady Cardinals 0-12 (1A Booneville, MS) 17

MS #252 1A #30

Notes: You look at New Site and say either they don’t look that good or they are down this year. Then you look at the record and the way they are taking care of business and you tip your hat to Coach Byron Sparks. They are rolling and continued to roll after this game with Jumpertown as they beat Baldwyn for the Prentiss County Championship. Chloe Hammock (5-3 ’19 G New Site) and Hannah Campbell (5-8 ’21 G New Site) had impressive games in the win. Jumpertown is the team of the future. They are talented and have size. They have the opportunity to be a powerhouse the next couple of years with Larissa Foust (5-11 ’22 Jumpertown), Kalea Koger (5-10 ’22 Jumpertown), Lori Heavner (5-7 ’22 Jumpertown), Annabeth Moore (5-7 ’22 Jumpertown) and Emily Wilson (5-8 ’22 Jumpertown).

MS #102 3A #15

Wheeler Eagles 14-6 (1A Wheeler, MS) 61

MS #107 1A #8

Notes: Booneville looked like they had this game in complete control the entire game but Wheeler was still right there behind them the whole way. Booneville continued their winning ways with a big win over Baldwyn in the Prentiss County Championship. It’s always hard to pick a player of the game when Booneville wins because they are so level with team play. Trey McKinney (’21 G Booneville) stepped up with his rebounding from the guard spot in the fourth quarter. Dallas Gamble (6-1 ’19 F Booneville/South Alabama football) made his presence known and was a defensive headache for Wheeler. Cole McGrath (6-1 ’19 G Booneville/Northeast MS CC) played big before going down with an injury late in the game. Mac Shinault (6-4 ’22 C Booneville) nearly pulled of a double-double with his strong play. With Jalon Beene (5-11 ’19 G Wheeler) having a slow night, and slow I mean only dropping 21, several other Eagles stepped up. Cade Franks (5-10 ’19 SG Wheeler) pitched in 20. Jacob James (6-0 ’20 PG Wheeler) played all-out as always and Jacob Coats (5-9 ’19 G Wheeler) caught my eye with his strong effort.

Notes: Demarcus Gray (6-6 ’20 F/C Leake Central) did his job on both ends of the court to help create the separation in the score. He was a force in the paint as a defender and made the best of his scoring opportunities when he got the ball on the offensive end.

Notes: Philadelphia has a tough team. Jordan Hill (’20 G/F Philadelphia) and Shemar Rush (’19 G/F Philadelphia) are two long wings. Zabian Hunter (’19 C Philadelphia) is a solid post. Jacobi York (’19 G Philadelphia) is a strong body lefty shooter. Nicholas Crockett (6-1 ’20 G/F Philadelphia) brings energy off the bench. Querrion Gadson (5-11 ’19 G McAdams) was a pleasant find for McAdams. He scores easy around contact and also plays above the rim. He is a good passer too.
