Wildcats Hold Slim Lead in District Race

After a heartfelt pregame speech from sophomore Godsgift Ezedinma, the #14 ranked Wildcats’ basketball team went out and defeated Mount Pleasant, 67-58 in a filled-to-overflowing Wildcats Gym Tuesday night.

G.G. talked about the team returning to a successful approach from earlier this season where they were more concerned with making defensive stops rather than worrying about how many points they were scoring. As a result, the Wildcats used defensive stops early to take a 14-6 lead after one quarter. The Wildcats never trailed after that. The win propelled the Wildcats back into first place by a half game.

The Wildcats are now 9-1 in district play while Mount Pleasant slips to 9-2. The Wildcats need wins at Greenville Friday and at home on senior night against Hallsville next Tuesday to wrap up a district championship and the district’s number one seed in the playoffs. The Wildcats improved their season record to 26-4.

6-foot-8 post player Victor Iwuakor led the Wildcats with 21 points against Mount Pleasant. Guard Keaston Willis scored 15 points including two three pointers. Ezedinma and Day Day Hall had 8 points each. Michael Jefferson and Bryson Lynn scored 7 points apiece. Dedric Godbolt had 1 point.
