BHS basketball splits Westside

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Williams contributed to the team’s defensive stops with seven steals on the night.

“Tykeasia Williams is the leader of the team,” Owens said. “We do very well with her on the floor.”

At 7-6 this season, the BHS girls look to continue their momentum against an 11-2 Rutland squad tonight.

“Should be a good game,” Owens said. “It’s going to be a good challenge for us.”

While the girls keep their winning record alive, the boys continue to struggle with injuries, as they lost 77-44 to the Seminoles on Friday.

“Westside played an incredible game,” boys’ head coach Rechard Larkin said. “It was almost as if they were shooting into the ocean.”

Unfortunately, the Braves’ have been limited with injuries this season, sidelining many of the team’s starters in recent contests.

“Our guys played well,” Larkin said. “We really only had eight, but we dressed out nine. We were hoping that we would be able to compete, but once two of our starters picked up two fouls in the first quarter, that kind of changed things because now we’re playing guys that don’t have a lot of varsity experience.”

While BHS was unable to notch its sixth win of the season on Friday night, Marquise Williams continued to show his dominance in the region with another double-double — 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Damarious Mason also played well, leading the squad in scoring with 15 points against the Seminoles.

“He actually did an outstanding job in the minutes he played on Friday night,” Larkin said.

Going into a region contest at home tonight, Larkin admits the team may dress a small roster once again.

“It very well could be the same situation — it could be the same eight guys, but that will be a game-time decision,” he said. “We’re in a different scenario, where we have a region game on our home court. We don’t know that we’ll be at 100 percent, but nonetheless we’ll certainly give it our best shot to win.”
