“We came out extra flat. No excuse,” said Selma coach Woodie Jackson. “They shot the lights out. They probably didn’t miss but two shots the first half.”

The Saints cut the deficit to 57-49 in the third quarter but Wilcox Central pulled away in the fourth for the win.

“We got relaxed and reserve players gave them the momentum,” said Dukes. “Overall we made a great defensive effort. That was the main turning point in the whole game.”

The Selma B-team fared a little better than the varsity in a 49-41 win.
