Ladarius Webb scored a game high 35, but it was two consecutive three pointers by Dewight Carruth
midway through the fourth quarter which helped break open a seesaw affair as the Hornets dealt the
Trojans their first area loss of the year, 73-61.  The entire first half was close, as neither team built
more than a 7 point lead.  Beauregard dominated the third quarter, thanks in big part to 10 points from
Webb.  However, St. James scored the first four baskets of the final quarter and the lead was suddenly
down to 1.  Adam Mills, who hit all three of his three pointers in the fourth quarter, gave the Trojans
the lead with his first one with 5½ minutes remaining, at 49-48.  His second three pointer tied the game
again at 52.  However, Carruth's first three came on the next possession, and after a timeout and a steal,
he connected again.  The ensuing inbound pass was stolen by Webb and he drove to the basket for 8
quick Beauregard points and a 60-52 lead.  The Trojans could get no closer than 6 afterwards, as the
Hornets made 10 of their 16 second half freethrows to thwart any late Trojan threat.

Tiambra Dinkins scored a game high 22 points, and Beauregard had an enormous advantage with trips
to the freethrow line (21 to 1) while benefiting from a number of St. James turnovers, as the Lady
Hornets avenged an earlier season defeat, and a defeat the previous year at their home gym, by beating
the Lady Trojans by 4.  Beauregard rushed out to a 10-2 lead before St. James fought back for a tie
at the end of the first quarter, and the second quarter was close thruout as Elizabeth Richards started
and ended the quarter scoring with her three pointers.  The Trojans built up a 28-22 lead, but fouls
began to mount and the Hornets were making repeat trips to the line, outscoring St. James at the line
for the game 11-0.  Beauregard went on a 13-0 run to reverse the Trojans 28-22 lead to a 35-28
deficit.  St. James could only get as close as 1 point once in the fourth quarter, despite a late flurry
of offense on both sides.

The Junior Varsity Trojans won their third consecutive game with an impressive showing on the road against
the Junior Varsity Hornets.  St. James got out to an early 4-0 lead, but Beauregard scored 16 of the next 20
points to take a 16-8 lead.  St. James cut the lead in half by halftime, and two John Enslen baskets early in the
third quarter tied the score at 20.  After two Landon Eley free throws, the Trojans would hold the lead until the
Hornets took a brief 39-38 lead midway through the fourth quarter.  They would only score one more point the
entire game.  Tyler Henry and Enslen scores built the lead to 5, and the Trojans were hot from the freethrow
line down the stretch to cinch the victory.
