JCTMS Basketball Blog (Week9)

We celebrated 8th Grade Night this evening prior to our last home game at Male High School. We send off six 8th graders this year as they finish their middle school careers in the next month. From this graduating group this year, we will have kids next year attending; Male High School, Manual High School and Butler High School.

The game vs TT Knight started out a sluggish as we went into halftime only up 14-6.  Once we came back from halftime we started to play a lot better and was able to go on to win 43-14. We were led in scoring by 8th Grader MaKiya Humphrey with 14 points. TT Knight was led in scoring by 7th Grader Christen Stone with 10 points. 

This win takes our record to 8-5 on the season with two regular season games left. 

Next week we finish our district play with a game at Highland Middle at 4pm on Thursday, January 23rd.

As post season is around the corner, each of the Four District Tourneys will be during the week of February 3rd and the City Tourney is week of February 10th which features each district tourney champ and district tourney runner-up. 

Go Lady Centurions!
