Tigers fall to Grenada

By Myra Bean
No matter what South Panola boys tried, they could not get over the Grenada Chargers.

Grenada shut down the Tigers 62-50 in non-conference action. It does not get any easier for the Tigers as they host the No. 1 ranked Starkville Yellowjackets (16-0) tonight in district action.

Against Grenada, Antonio Allen was the only Tiger to score in double figures with 23 points. Grenada held a 30-22 lead at halftime.
