Lady Bears roll past Billingsley

Published 12:35am Saturday, February 1, 2014

The Keith High School girl’s varsity team won easily against Billingsley High School during their day game Friday, but that doesn’t mean head coach Cecil Williams was pleased.

“We played horrible,” Williams said seconds after the clock ran out in their 54-42 win Friday. “Our aggressiveness defensively was lacking, and then rebounding we did a poor job of boxing out. All over our team effort just wasn’t there.”

Keith found itself ahead of Billingsley 22-6 after the first quarter, but that would be its biggest lead of the game.

Williams said that early lead might have actually played a part in what he described as a lackuster performance from his team the rest of the game.

“We had a good start throughout the first quarter, but I guess with that lead I guess we just got sloppy,” Williams said. “That’s not how you are going to win games.”

The Lady Bears were led in scoring by a trio of players; Rodaisha Holman scored 12 points — all of them in the first quarter — Harriet Winchester had 11 points and Zykia Pettway added 10.

 

Keith 80, Billingsley 24 (boys)

The Keith boys varsity dominated Billingsley 80-24 Friday and finished Class 1A, Area 5 play undefeated with a blowout win on senior night.

The Bears were led by Anfernee Simmons, who scored 22 points and went five of seven from three-point range. Senior Charlie Pasley also added 10 points

“In a game like that we thought might be sloppy, we actually came out and did a good job,” Keith head coach Tommy Tisdale said.
