BATESVILLE – It had all the thrills of basketball: slam dunks, nothing but net 3-pointers and alley-oops.

Unfortunately, for the South Panola Tigers (3-13 overall, 0-2 district), the Holly Springs Hawks stole the show, Tuesday, Jan. 14.

The Hawks presented a much improved team over the last two years and defeated South Panola 80-63.

The final score was the good news. At one time, Holly Springs led by 36 points in the third quarter.

The Tigers had the hot hand and led 8-2 in the first quarter. But when the Hawks heated up, they took the lead 11-10 with 3:07 left in the first quarter and never looked back.

The teams maintained an up-tempo pace from the first second to the ending buzzer, but turnovers and missed shots took its toll on the Tigers.

The Tigers seem to have a chance at the end of the first quarter as they were only down 19-12.
 


Lady Tigers fall to Holly Springs
BATESVILLE – The South Panola Lady Tigers did not fare very well against Holly Springs and fell 65-45 against a much improved Lady Hawks team.

Holly Springs went on a 8-1 scoring spree and led 11-5 with 4:42 left in the first quarter.

The Lady Tigers would not be denied and caught up and passed the Lady Hawks 14-13 with 1:03 left in the quarter on a Gates field goal. At the end of the first quarter, South Panola had a 16-13 lead.

The two teams played neck-and-neck through half of the second quarter. Holly Springs retook the lead 26-25 with 3:18 to go in the quarter and scored 10 unanswered points to lead 36-25 at the half.

The Lady Hawks beat the Lady Tigers on the rebounding boards and made the Lady Tigers pay with score after score. At the end of the third quarter, Holly Springs had increased its lead by 14 points, 50-36.
