Preps basketball round-up

Three area schools were in action on Friday.

THOMASVILLE —

Brookwood at Southland Academy: 

The girls fell to 13-6 (0-4) with a 56-31 loss despite a 24-point outing by Madeleine Harrer.

“It’s extremely frustrating,” coach Meghan Waits said. “We’re a completely different team when we rebound."

The boys, plagued with a few key injuries, fell 50-41. Center Chase Flowers remained inactive with a knee injury and guard Jacob Sloan left in the third quarter with a sore thigh.

“I thought, overall, we played well considering they are the No. 3 team in the state,” boys coach Brad Piazza said.

 
Thomasville at Berrien:

The girls head into next week’s 1-AA Tournament with momentum after Friday’s 44-31 win. The Lady Bulldogs are amid a three-way tie for second place (16-9, 7-5).

“We definitely built some confidence,” girls coach Antonio Wade said.

The boys piggybacked with a 51-43 win, which also gives them a 7-5 record in the region. 

“The kids grew a lot tonight,” boys coach Ben Tillman said. “You want to have momentum any time you’re going into a region tournament.”

Tillman guestimated that Thomasville will take on Fitzgerald, who it beat last Saturday at home.

 

Bainbridge at Cairo:

The girls woes continued on Friday with a 56-54 buzzer-beater loss, which drops them to 5-20 this year.

“I liked our improvement, because they whipped us about two weeks ago,” girls coach Lucy Baker said.

The boys had not finished at press time.

This rivalry will magnify next year when both teams are members of 1-AAAA.
