Prep girls: Lady Tigers cruise

FAYETTE — Diamond Smith scored 13 points and Brandy Buck had 11 points to lead four Jefferson County players in double figures as the Lady Tigers rolled to an 81-28 win over the Piney Woods Lady Tornadoes Tuesday night.

Dionna Jackson and Taneisha Bailey added 10 points apiece to lead a balanced scoring attack for Jefferson County, which had seven players scoring at least eight points in the game.

The Lady Tigers dominated Piney Woods in the first half and there was little the Lady Tornadoes could do to slow them down. At the end of the first quarter, the Lady Tigers led 24-2. And by halftime, they had a commanding 45-6 advantage.

Only two players scored for Piney Woods and both of them finished in double figures — Raven Thompson with a game-high 18 points and Kiwanda Kelly had 10 points.

Jefferson County (2-1) hosts Port Gibson on Friday.

Enterprise 49, Cathedral 13

NATCHEZ — The Cathedral Lady Green Wave had a tough time getting shots to fall against Enterprise Tuesday night as the Lady Yellow Jackets cruised to an easy road win.

Markie Case and Caroleh Brister had 11 points each to lead Enterprise, which led Cathedral 10-2 after one quarter of play and never looked back.

Kennedy Gray led the Lady Green Wave (1-2) with eight points. They next play on Friday at home against Loyd Star.

WCCA 43, Ben’s Ford 17

LIBERTY — Tamera Bateaste led all scorers with 14 points and Jennifer Chaffin added 11 points as Dani Wright finally got her first win as the head coach of the Wilkinson County Christian Academy Lady Rams Tuesday night over Ben’s Ford at the Amite School Center Tournament.

Carmen Cavin chipped in with nine points for WCCA (1-3). The Lady Rams were only up 6-4 at the end of the first quarter before having their way with Lady Eagles over the next two quarters to put the game out of reach.

WCCA is next scheduled to play on Saturday at the ASC Tournament against an opponent to be determined. However, coach Wright said the game may be moved to Thursday. Also, WCCA’s games at Centreville Academy that were scheduled to take place on Thursday have been rescheduled for Thursday, Dec. 13 due to the Rams’ football team’s MAIS Class A South State Championship game at home against Newton County Academy.
