The West Point girls stayed with one of the state’s top basketball teams before foul trouble finally took the Lady Wave down late.

In a hard-fought defensive struggle Monday night, Coach Dash Daniels’ squad was down just 6 points with 1:20 to play when Jamia Hollings fouled out. Homesteading Neshoba Central pulled away at the foul line, logging a 46-30 win to raise the Lady Rockets’ record to 3-1 on the year.

The Lady Wave fell to 1-2.

The 6-1 Hollings has carried the Wave through the first three games and Monday night was no exception. She 20 points and 12 rebounds. McKayla Williams added seven for the Lady Wave.

“It was a single-digit, back and forth game until the end,” Daniels said. “It was a hard-fought game. I was impressed how we competed the entire game against a very talented Neshoba team. It was a good learning experience for us.

The West Point boys fell 76-39 to a Neshoba Central team that is now 4-0 on the season.

The West Point boys and gils are back in action Thursday when Starkville comes to visit.
