COACH’S QUOTE: “My first two players off the bench (Lindsey Davidson and Heather Martin) didn’t suit up because they’ve been sick, and we got in a little bit of foul trouble in the second and third quarters. We never could get any continuity going, but the first win after Christmas is always good,” — Tupelo coach Brian Davis.

Roberts joined Hibbard and Richardson in double figures with 10 points in the victory.

COACH’S QUOTE: “Patrick, Steffan and Colton really did a great job of rebounding. We’ve got to get better from the free throw line.

Gaines and Jeremy Lavorchek were also in double figures as the Bulldogs won their ninth game in a row.

COACH’S QUOTE: “It’s tough to lose two starters, especially at a school our size. We don’t have a lot of balance now, and that’s going to hurt later on,” — Stratford coach Mark Qualls.
