WATER VALLEY — Momentum is not something the Water Valley basketball team will be able to take into this week’s Division 2-3A tournament at Aberdeen.
Both the Lady Blue Devils and Blue Devils lost on Senior Night on Friday in the WVHS gym to South Panola. The Lady Devils fell behind in the first half and never recovered as they lost 58-35, while the Blue Devils’ early first-half lead didn’t stick late as they fell 43-39 in the nightcap.
For Blue Devils coach John Sherman, the loss came down to turnovers, too many for his team and not enough for the Tigers, who were down 11-1 to start the contest. (February 6, 2012, Page 4B)
