COACHES QUOTE: “We turned the ball over four of our first six possessions and you can’t do that against good teams.

The kids didn’t quit and I felt pretty proud of them,” — Ada head coach Scott Lowrance.

Cameron Mann had 18 points and nine rebounds while Jason Wyszynski added nine points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots.

COACHES QUOTE: “Really, that was probably our worst defensive effort of the year. We just never did show any consistency in either our zone defense or our man-to-man. Offensively we played one of our better games of the year, and it’s a good thing we did the way we played defensively. We’ll be all right if we can put those two facets of the game together,” — Tupelo head coach Clay Weller.

Team Record: Tupelo 14-7.
