Blue Devils run past J.Z. George in home opener

WATER VALLEY – Water Valley’s boys basketball team was too fast for J.Z. George. It was a small taste of the kind of frenetic pace opponents will have to deal with this season from the Blue Devils under first-year coach Larry Taylor. Water Valley applied full-court pressure after every made basket, greeted every ball handler with a trap at half-court, and turned every miss by J.Z. George into a race to the other end, overwhelming the Jaguars in a 73-30 rout Tuesday night in its home opener at the WVHS gym. (December 10, 2014, Page 2B)
