The Enterprise Wildcats came visiting Friday evening and returned home with three defeats. The three games went almost as they did a week ago in Enterprise. The Lee boys JV faced their toughest game of the season.
After trailing much of the game, they found their footing early in the fourth quarter to catch up and pull away from the JV Wildcats . The young Wildcats bring several exciting players to the game including an eight grader who should be fun to watch over the next several years. Coach Scott has an impressive group himself. He has a great mixture of young players and some with limited experience that he has developed into a formidable group. His athletes turned up the pressure in the fourth and held on to their undefeated season.
After watching the JV turn it up the Lady Generals jumped out on the Lady Wildcats early in the first quarter, taking a 23 – 6 lead and never looked back. While looking for one or two more players to step up and be counted on, the usual culprits led the way. Zippy Broughton scored what seemed like an easy 30 points to go along with six steals and Deasia “Double D” Marsh picked up her fifth double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Jada Pickett continues to work herself into basketball shape and added 8 points and five rebounds. The Lady Generals improve to 3 and 0 in the area and step outside of the area to play Charles Henderson in the MLK Classic on Monday.
In the main event the Generals followed the Lady Generals early fireworks with some of their own. The game was over early and the Wildcats main concern seemed to be that the Generals were eliminated from any rafters shaking dunks. The Generals took a 46 – 23 lead into halftime and finished with a 73 – 40 victory. Jon’Datric Butler and Quinterrius Ruggs led the Generals with 14 points each and Kevontae Ruggs with 12. Ruggs III and Bubba added eight point apiece. Freshman Duke Miles grabbed seven boards while Butler had five steals and Rivers and Miles added four each. Like the Lady Generals, the Generals improved to 3 and 0 in the area. They will be back in action Monday when they face Fairfield in the MLK Classic.
Regardless of BELIEFS or PERCEPTIONS, it is a great day on Ann Street.
